Chelsea in talks with several companies for shirt sponsorship next season

Chelsea are in talks with Riyadh Air, Bank of America, Malaysia Airlines and an Asian company to be the club’s front of shirt sponsor for next season according to reports.

The Blues are currently searching for a front of shirt sponsor for next season with current sponsors Infinite Athlete only signed up for this season.

The deal with Infinite Athlete is said to be worth £43m for the season but was slightly cut by Premier League authorities.

The club have been in talks with Saudi company Riyadh Air but a lack of European football particularly the Champions League is making negotiations difficult.

The £60m a year sponsorship deal Chelsea are looking for is impossible to achieve without Champions League football.

Chelsea’s agreement with Oman Air as the club’s official airline and global partner was ended early last month with the decision taken by the new management of Oman Air.

Talks with Riyadh Air and Malaysia Airlines had no influence on the airlines decision whilst negotiations with the Jordan Brand have been suspended until the end of the season.
