Premier League chiefs sweating as only TWO clubs confirm new sleeve sponsors

Date Posted,April 26, 2017

Premier League bosses are sweating after just two clubs confirmed they have shirts sleeve sponsors for next term.

Top-flight clubs can rake in up to £10million more per season from next term from selling advertising space on their shirt sleeves.

The Premier League logo will still feature on the left sleeve with the advertising on the right.

The advertising space is valued at around 20 per cent of the main shirt sponsorship deal and could be worth at least £10million to Manchester United, who make £50million a year from Chevrolet.

But neither United or any of the Premier League’s other clubs have yet confirmed a deal with any other companies.

Sporting Group International have agreed with ten clubs to sell an aggregated shirt sleeve sponsorship deal which will see the teams have the same logo.

Promoted duo Brighton and Newcastle are also on the hunt.

Adrian Wright, CEO of Sporting Group International, told Mirror.co.uk : “There has been plenty of global interest, but as yet nothing has been finalised.

“The coverage that will be received for the brand will make history and will be seen as hot property due to its unique appeal.”

A deal has been forced into extra time after Sporting Group International received interest from a Far East company for a multi-million pound offer to the stable of clubs but it was rejected by bosses at the Premier League.

They deemed it ‘a conflict of commercial interest’ with an existing League partner.

At least two clubs will miss out in the short term because their current main shirt sponsorship deals include clauses forbidding the appearance of other company logos on their jerseys.
