The ICC and the Emirates relationship dates back to 2002, when the award-winning airline came on board as a sponsor of the ICC. The partnership was strengthened with Emirates becoming the ICC’s official partner for the 2007-2015 events cycle and the official sponsor of the ICC’s elite panel of umpires and match referees.
The International Cricket Council (ICC) and Emirates have renewed a deal for an additional seven years which sees the Dubai-based airline become a global partner for all events from 2016-2023.
This new deal is an extension and expansion of that partnership as Emirates will continue its sponsorship of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Umpires and Match Referees, with the Fly Emirates logo being displayed prominently on the umpires’ clothing when they are officiating at all international cricket matches.
In the current cycle, the partnership promises to reach greater heights, as the ICC will stage an ICC World Twenty20 tournament in 2020, two ICC Champions Trophy and two ICC Cricket World Cups among a host of other events, including women’s, age-group, qualifying and development tournaments.
