​Arsenal are already looking out for a new shirt sponsor, despite their current deal with the Dubai-based corporation Emirates having two seasons left to run. 


The ​Mail report that the airline are 'disillusioned' with football and are looking to end their shirt partnership with Arsenal when it reaches its natural conclusion in two years, although they are likely to keep up naming rights on the north London side's stadium. 

The stadium deal runs for another 11 years, but the Gunners are now looking to split their shirt and stadium sponsorships to begin to match the income garnered by rivals such as Chelsea, who receive £40m-a-year from current shirt sponsors Yokohama Tyres. 


The administrative side of Arsene Wenger's club will be facing off against a packed field of sporting events and teams looking for top level sponsorship, including the England national football team, Tottenham’s new ground, rugby’s Premiership and the Six Nations.

Emirates are also expected to drop their title sponsorship of the FA Cup, a competition which Arsenal have won in three of the last four seasons, when it runs out at the end of next season. 


The Gunners regained the trophy last month with a stunning 2-1 victory over Premier League champions Chelsea, with goals from Alexis Sanchez and Aaron Ramsey sparking scenes of wild celebration among both players and fans.
