Liverpool Football Club (LFC) and Japan Airlines (JAL) have announced a global, multi-year partnership deal that will see the award-winning airline become the club’s official airline partner.

The partnership, which covers both the men’s and women’s LFC teams, will see LFC and JAL work together to support and complement their global growth plans, leveraging their respective strengths to grow their global footprints.

As part of this partnership, Japan Airlines will collaborate closely with LFC Foundation, the club’s charity arm, on key community initiatives across global markets.

The first initiative will kick off in July, with the airline supporting a youth football clinic in conjunction with LFC’s international pre-season match held in Philadelphia on the US east coast.

LFC fans will have the chance to win match tickets, signed memorabilia, and a trip to Liverpool through fan promotions. JAL Mileage Bank members will also stand a chance to access exclusive VIP experiences at Anfield, the club’s home ground.
