Emirates and Warrington Wolves have announced a four-year agreement appointing the carrier as official airline and main sponsor for both the club and the team.
The deal is one of the most high-profile partnerships within the sport of rugby league as well as the biggest in the club’s history.
The announcement was revealed today by Julie Bailey, Emirates district sales manager for the north-west of England and the Midlands, and Steven Broomhead, chairman of Warrington Wolves during a press conference held at The Halliwell Jones Stadium in Warrington.
Bailey said, “The partnership is a natural extension of our existing rugby sponsorship portfolio, and reflects the core values of our purpose to enrich the experiences of rugby fans in the UK.”
Emirates is the proud sponsor of the Emirates Airline Glasgow Sevens, the penultimate event of the annual Series calendar.
Gatcliffe said: “The club has had an association with Emirates for a number of years and greatly appreciates the partnership support. Securing this sponsorship takes us into further exciting times at the club.
“We pride ourselves on being at the forefront of both the sport of Rugby League and the world of business so to join the likes of sporting giants AC Milan, Arsenal and Formula One shows the desire the club has to reach its full potential and spread the word of both Warrington Wolves and our game.
“We feel privileged to have secured such a high-profile sponsorship and will be proud to carry the name Emirates on our shirts next season and beyond.”
