The American multinational financial services corporation American Express (or Amex) have been the biggest and long-standing partners of Brighton & Hove Albion for a decade. The two first came together in 2010 with a naming rights deal for the stadium, that was expanded with kit sponsorship in 2013 in a deal worth US$1.9m per season. The two parties further extended their partnership last year with a 12-year extension in an enhanced deal reportedly worth north of $121m (approx. $10m per year). The agreement represents the largest sponsorship deal in the Premier League outside the traditional ‘Big Six’. Amex have been a veritable contributor to the Brighton community. They have their UK headquarters located in Brighton and are among the largest private-sector employers in the region. The deal strengthens their association with the city. It grants them naming rights across the club’s women’s and disability squads, in a bid to encourage diversity and inclusion within the community.
Brighton extended another long-term partnership last year as they penned a three-year extension with US sportswear giant Nike until the end of 2021/22 season. Nike have been the official kit supplier for the Seagulls since 2014 and will continue to do so for the club’s men’s and women’s sides – both main and youth setups.
