Chelsea’s Shirt Sponsorship Deal With Turkish Airlines Stalls



Estimated Reading Time: <1

Chelsea FC’s £25m shirt sponsorship deal with Turkish Airline which was supposed to be sealed in December has now stalled as a result of the airline not being too sure of paying such a huge amount.

The Blues current shirt sponsorship deal with Samsung expires at the end of the season. The inability of the club to secure a new shirt sponsor on time is being put forward as one of the reason Ron Gourlay stepped down as the club’s chief executive in October.

If the premier league leaders eventually seal the deal, there will go above Liverpool and Arsenal and will therefore only be second to Manchester United on the premier league’s shirt sponsorship table. The Red Devils’ shirt sponsorship deal with Chevrolet is worth a whopping £53m annually.
