Barclays agrees 3-year Premier League deal


Barclays has confirmed a 3-year title sponsorship deal of the Premier League worth A?82.25 million.

The deal will run from the 2010-11 season until the end of the 2012-13 season. The banking giant has sponsored the Premier League since 2004 and their current three-year contract is worth A?65.8 million, but expires next year.

Barclays is one of the few banks that has not received any financial help from the Government, opting to go it alone last year by raising A?7 billion from investors in Qatar and Abu Dhabi.

The news comes just a few weeks after Standard Chartered Bank announced it is to be the main sponsor of Liverpool Football Club.

The A?80 million agreement, which is a four-year deal, will see the famous red shirts emblazoned with the banka��s name from July 2010.
