Premier League giants Arsenal have today (May 23, 2018) unveiled their first ever sleeve sponsor in the form of the Rwanda Development Board, with “Visit Rwanda” set to be present on the left sleeve of the Gunners’ kits from the 2018/19 season. The deal is for a period of three seasons.
Unlike many of their league rivals, Arsenal did not have a sleeve sponsor in the 2017/18 season owing to their nature of their primary shirt sponsorship contract with Emirates. However, a recent extension to that deal, announced in February 2018, now allows the Gunners to negotiate their own sleeve sponsorship deals. The Emirates logo will appear on the front of Arsenal’s shirts till the 2023/24 season.
The London outfit officially unveiled their 2018/19 season home jersey, made by Puma, yesterday.
Rwanda will also serve as the club’s official tourism partners.
