‘FLYING THE EMIRATES FLAG’
We’re proud to have become the Official Airline Sponsor of Sport Lisboa e Benfica at the start of the 2015/16 season, and to have a signed a three-year shirt sponsorship, renewed in 2018.
The partnership saw the iconic ‘Fly Emirates’ logo displayed across the Portuguese club’s kit making it a “part of an elite group of football clubs of which many aim to be a part of, but few succeed: to show off Fly Emirates in their jerseys!”, as quoted by Benfica President Luis Filipe Vieira. With the renewal of our contract, we take pride in having our promise to 'Fly Better' declared on S.L. Benfica's team kits.
The prestigious club plays a key role in our sponsorship portfolio made of top sporting clubs, tournaments and high profile cultural events worldwide.
In 2014 and 2017, Benfica took part in the Emirates Cup, an annual pre-season tournament hosted at Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium in London.
