Samsung renews sponsorship of Chelsea
Posted by ZA on July 16, 2009
One of the highest visibility team sponsorships in the World was renewed for another 3 years when Samsung extended their deal with Chelsea Football Club. Chelsea is the English Premiere League juggernaut owned by Russian billionaire, Roman Abramovich. The team has a huge following throughout the world and has a roster full of some of the most famous names in the sport, including; Michael Ballack, John Terry, Frank Lampard and Michael Essien. Chelsea won the FA Cup in 2009 and is playing a series of exhibition matches (aka: friendlies) in the United States this Summer. Including a huge, sold out, match with Italian team, AC Milan, in Baltimore on July 24th. These traveling tours are a great opportunity for Samsung to stretch even more value out of their sponsorship of the football club. Chelsea has worn kits sponsored by Samsung since 2005.
