Arsenal’s new partnership with Universal Pictures will see the club help promote upcoming films, such as Despicable Me 3, and the studio receive access to first team players for interviews and other exclusive content.
A new LED perimeter board promoting new Universal movies will be introduced at the Emirates, and the film studio will also be able to use Arsenal’s digital channels as a marketing platform.
Vinai Venkatesham, the Gunners’ chief commercial officer, has pointed out how this partnership is the first of its kind for the club.
“This partnership with Illumination and Universal Pictures is the first of its kind for the club and one we are extremely excited about,” Venkatesham said.
