Arsenal – Visit Rwanda
Arsenal looped in the Rwanda Development Board in a three-year deal in May 2018, making “Visit Rwanda” the Official Tourism Partner of the club as well as the official sleeve sponsor for their matchday kits.
This deal initially brought a lot of criticism upon the Rwandan government and even accusations of investing in a foreign football club from the coffers of the country’s crucial developmental aid. However, the deal has since proved fruitful for both parties, with Rwanda even observing an 8% lift in their tourism numbers (September 2019).
