Exclusive: Emirates Looking to Renew Contracts With Lyon and Benfica
Emirates' current contracts with two teams, Benfica and Lyon, are coming to an end and Emirates is willing to find a way to extend the contracts with these two teams.
Emirates Looking to Renew Contracts With Lyon and Benfica
Emirates' current deal with Lyon is for five years and will expire at the end of the 2024-25 season. Meanwhile, Emirates' contract with Benfica runs for 10 years from the 2015-16 season and will also expire at the end of the 2024-25 season, like Lyon. As a result, Emirates is looking to extend its contracts with both teams in order to maintain its role as front-of-shirt sponsor.
Emirates x Lyon Deal
Emirates has been Lyon's front-of-shirt sponsor since the start of the 20-21 season, replacing Hyundai and the deal runs for 5 years (ending at the end of the 24-25 season).
Emirates x Benfica Deal
Emirates and Benfica have a long-standing partnership that dates back to the 2015-16 season. The contract between the two sides will run until the end of the 24-25 season, similar to that of Lyon.
Facing the expiration of the two contracts, Emirates looks forward to continuing to work with both Lyon and Benfica.
