Sport Lisboa e Benfica is a club with a rich history and an impressive trophy cabinet and Emirates is proud to have become a Main Sponsor of the club at the start of the 2015/16 season. Top of the Portuguese Primeira Liga for a record breaking 34 times, the Lisbon based club has a strong reputation for being a force to be reckoned with in European Club football and a dedicated fan base to match.
Emirates first joined forces with S.L. Benfica for the 2014/15 season as the Official Airline Partner, a partnership which was soon extended when the airline signed a three-year deal to become the club’s Main Sponsor and to see the iconic Fly Emirates across the kit.
In 2014, Benfica took part in the Emirates Cup, an annual pre-season tournament hosted at Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium in London.
