Arsenal Football Club is the official BYD Global Car and Bus partner following an agreement signed in London this week. The Partnership will focus on BYD’s strength as a leader in electric vehicles.
The agreement also covers hospitality opportunities and branding at the iconic Emirates Stadium in north London, home of the Gunners, as the Arsenal team is informally known.
Speaking after the signing, Sherry Li, BYD’s General Manager for Global Branding and PR, said:
We are delighted to be associated with the world famous Arsenal Football Club. It’s a great honour for BYD to start this relationship which is appropriate given our joint commitment to the environment . We look forward to working together in the coming months to raise the profile of our combined sustainable vision and, in BYD’s case, our zero emissions products.
Vinai Venkatesham, Chief Commercial Officer at Arsenal Football Club, said:
We were delighted to welcome our guests from BYD to Emirates Stadium to celebrate this new and exciting partnership. We are proud to become the first Premier League club to enter into a global electric vehicle partnership, and to do so with one of China’s largest and best-known companies. We look forward to working with BYD in the coming seasons.
