New Chelsea Yokohama Rubber Kit Sponsorship Deal- £40m a year from 2015-2020

February 27th, 2015 No comments

Chelsea will have a new shirt sponsor for the 2015/16 Premier League season after the Blues revealed that they inked a new partnership with Yokohama Rubber. The new sponsorship deal is for an initial period of five years and is a major achievement for Christian Purslow, the former Liverpool managing director who is now in charge of global commercial activities at Stamford Bridge.

How much is Chelsea’s new jersey sponsorship deal with Yokohama Rubber worth?

It is reportedly worth £40m/$60m a year (£200m/$300m over five seasons). This makes it the second biggest shirt sponsorship deal in the Premier League behind Manchester United’s partnership with Chevrolet, and ahead of Liverpool, Arsenal and Man City’s existing deals. It is also more than twice the value of Chelsea’s last sponsorship with Samsung, which was reportedly worth £18m a season

Yokohama chairman Tadanobu Nagumo is here seen in the pics below at the announcement of the deal with skipper John Terry and manager Jose Mourinho.

On an end note, it will be interesting to see how Yokohama will be incorporated into the Chelsea shirt.

The report, which features data for England, Spain, Italy, France, Germany and Holland, says that the total investment into jersey sponsorship for the 2014/15 season (across each nation’s top division) was around 687 million euros, a 20% rise over the 2013/14 season figure of 570 million.

The answer is England’s Premier League, with a total of 213 million euros for the 2014/15 season, an increase of 36% over last season’s 157 million euro figure. A bulk of this 36% has been made by Manchester United’s new sponsorship deal with Chevrolet. Read more…

Brisbane Roar ACL Jersey 2015- Roar Griffith University Kit Sponsor Champions League

February 24th, 2015 2 comments

Australian A-League side Brisbane Roar have announced that Griffith University will serve as their principal jersey sponsor for their upcoming AFC Asian Champions League campaign. The Roar’s ACL kit was officially unveiled to the public on 24th February, 2015. The strip’s the same as their 14/15 A-League jersey which is sponsored by The Coffee Club.

The Roar will play all three ACL home games on the Gold Coast, instead of their regular home at Brisbane’s Suncorp Stadium. One of the games clashes with a Foo Fighters gig at Suncorp, and AFC regulations stipulate that all games must be played at the same venue, leading to the venue change.

Griffith University have a significant presence on the Gold Coast, and the moving of the games presumably played a big role in them agreeing to sponsor the Roar Read more…
