UK: Chang Beer extends football shirt sponsorship
Chang Beer has extended its shirt sponsorship deal with an English Premier League football team.
The Thai beer brand, owned by Thai Beverage, will continue to be displayed on Everton's shirts for a further three years, the company confirmed yesterday (17 January). The extension will cost ThaiBev GBP8m (US$15.6m), and will run from the beginning of next season.
Chang, which was officially launched in the UK last year, has been Everton's shirt sponsor since 2004. The initial deal was forged to capitalise on the popularity of English football in Thailand and is not related to the brand's UK launch, a spokesperson for the company told just-drinks in October.
