In November 2011, Emirates announced the renewal of its sponsorship of Olympiacos, continuing the airline’s involvement with the most successful club in Greek football history until 2013.
With an astonishing 39 league titles, 25 Greek Cups and four Greek Super Cups to their name, Olympiacos boast a remarkable fan base of almost 2.5 million in Greece alone providing Emirates a huge audience reach.
As part of Emirates’ sponsorship of Olympiacos, ‘Fly Emirates’ signage will be displayed at the Karaiskaki stadium, the home of Olympiacos, as well as promotional and hospitality rights at all home games.
The Emirates Olympiacos sponsorship is yet another example of significant investment in the Greek market from the airline. Emirates has carried 900,000 passengers in the last five years, fostering trade and tourism connections between the UAE and Greece.
Emirates’ impressive football sponsorship portfolio also includes a number of high profile teams and events including Asian Football Confederation, Arsenal FC, AC Milan, Paris Saint-Germain, Hamburger SV, Real Madrid, Arsenal Soccer Schools Dubai, The Emirates Cup, and Zain Saudi Professional League.
