The International Cricket Council's Elite Panels of Umpires and Match referees have been sponsored by Emirates since 2002.
As part of Emirates’ sponsorship deal with the ICC, all members of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Umpires wear Emirates branded clothing during all Test, One Day International and T20 matches and all other ICC events.
The 'Fly Emirates' logos are prominent on umpires' shirts and jackets helping Emirates guarantee visibility and media exposure to cricket fans around the world. In addition to branded clothing, Emirates transports umpires around the globe as the official airline for all ICC travel.
As an Official Partner of the ICC, Emirates has rights to all ICC major tournaments including the 2011 and 2015 ICC Cricket World Cups, ICC Champions Trophy, ICC World Twenty20, ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifier, ICC Under 19 World Cup, ICC Intercontinental Cup and the ICC Women’s World Cup. Through this partnership Emirates will gain considerable media exposure.
