The connection between Premier League club Arsenal FC and Emirates Airlines is arguably one of most recognized and powerful partnerships in sports. And, as today’s chart shows, it is one which is built on solid foundations. 

Among those internet users who identify as Arsenal fans, it’s close to a fifth who say they have flown with Emirates at some point. This places this audience 2x ahead of the internet average and, perhaps most importantly, means that Arsenal fans are more likely than fans of other major Premier League clubs to be Emirates flyers.

Also, considering Arsenal Fans are significantly more likely to be regularly traveling abroad for business, Emirates’ long-running and extensive commitment to this sponsorship deal certainly makes sense.
