There­fore, clubs sign world record fees with kit spon­sors such as Adi­das, Puma, Nike to name a few. We’ve looked into some of the most lu­cra­tive spon­sor­ship deals that the world’s best foot­ball clubs have man­aged to se­cure. The fig­ures in­volved will give you an in­sight into how club man­ages to af­ford some of the vast sums spent on great play­ers.

It was ear­lier in 2017 when Adi­das and Real Madrid re­newed their kit spon­sor­ship, this meant that the cur­rent La Liga and Cham­pi­ons League cham­pi­ons will earn around USD 112.68 mil­lion per year for ten years.

It has been re­ported that there have been talks that Madrid want to re­new their con­tract which would make them earn a whop­ping

Usd112.68m/year for the next 10 years.

In 2011 Manchester City and Eti­had Air­ways had ne­go­ti­ated a deal in which the City of Manchester Sta­dium that Manchester City played their home games would be re­named “The Eti­had Sta­dium.” The spon­sor­ship deal will last for ten years and will make the club around USD 530.27 mil­lion mean­ing USD 53.03 mil­lion a year dur­ing the con­tract.

In the lat­ter months of 2016 Span­ish foot­ball club Barcelona and Nike agreed to an ex­ten­sion on the cur­rent kit deal that will now see the part­ner­ship last un­til 2023. The new spon­sor­ship deal will see Barcelona make around £140

mil­lion a year from 2018. The club had the sec­ond high­est rev­enue in world foot­ball back in

2015/16 and this kit deal is worth roughly 30% of the club’s rev­enue, which at the time was around £465 mil­lion. Club pres­i­dent, Josep Maria Bar­tomeu had pre­vi­ously stated that he would like the rev­enues to reach €1b by 2021 and this new deal could go a long way in achiev­ing that goal, be­com­ing the 1st club to do so.

The deal is said to be worth more than

£200 mil­lion un­til 2024.

Aside from part­ner­ships with some of the big­gest clubs in Euro­pean foot­ball, Emi­rates is the Of­fi­cial Air­line of in­ter­na­tional sport­ing events across golf, tennis, rugby, cricket, horse rac­ing and mo­tor­sports.
