Watch out: club announces new timepiece partner

57

After the announcement of PUMA as kit manufacturers this week, Arsenal have made public another commercial deal.

Via a statement on arsenal.com comes the news that Swiss watchmaker, JEAN RICHARD has signed ‘a long-term partnership agreement which provides significant presence within Emirates Stadium on matchdays and the right to create and distribute licensed product through Arsenal and JEANRICHARD retail channels.’

The head the club’s Marketing and Sales department said, “This is another important step as we build our partnerships portfolio and underlines the momentum we have on our commercial agenda.

“JEANRICHARD share many of our core values and we are delighted to welcome them to the Arsenal family.”

Those core values include:

  • Giving us money
  • Us taking the money
  • Discount swag for club employees
  • A free sundial for every player

Jokes aside, it all adds up as the club try to catch up with others whose commercial revenue is legitimately higher than ours.

We await the announcement of Arsenal’s Official South East Asian Ramen Noodle Partner and our new Worldwide Iced-Tea With Lemon In It deal.

Meanwhile, let’s hope that Captain Jean Luc Richard can boldly go where no official timepiece partner has gone before.

I’m afraid blogs is mistaken. After some long and demanding wikipedia research, I’ve learnt that JeanRichard is not in horology but is actually a historian born in 1921. So that’s who we’ve signed. Tallies with rumours that we’re tearing down Highbury to build a library.

Also JeanRichard and Puma are subsidiaries of the same parent company PPR, now Kering.

This was already announced on Arsenal.com. Enough with the second hand information.

On the face of it though, this is a pretty good dial for Arsenal. Especially as we’re so strapped for cash compared to others, if you catch my (horolo)gist.

I know right. Go fuck myself!

Am I the only one wondering how much money we’ll get from this? (So I can then work out Championship Manager-style which world class player we might be able to buy next)?

I would say a couple of hundred thousands plus watches for management and players (slightly lowers wage requirements) plus share of the sales of joint products (not significant imo).

That wankstain just had the nerve to criticize West Ham for “not playing football”. Does he not remember his own tactics at the Emirates a few weeks ago? What a total, complete, and utter cunt.

Good to see the club not resting on its laurels with the two mega deals with Emirates and Puma. Lots of money can be made from these types of sponsorship’s. In the last week Liverpool signed three worth around £31m [Liverpool deal with Garuda worth £16m a year, Dunkin’ Donuts (£8m ) and Vauxhall (£7m )]

Malaysian Gooner

If that Garuda deal is really worth 16m a year, Liverpool have done very well for themselves (especially since our deal with Emirates includes training kits and naming rights and is only worth 30m). I’m not sure if the Vauxhall deal is really worth that much but we have a similar tie-up with Citroen anyway.

I’d be curious to see what Swiss Ramble has to say about all these deals. Liverpool seems to be making a few fairly large sponsorship deals while we’re going the Man Utd route and signing many smaller scale regional deals.

Capt. Sullenberger has signed with us, according to the jeanrichard.com website. Another rabbit out of a hat for Herr Law! Also, there’s a really fucking big watch being held by Arsene and some Klaus Maria Brandauer bloke. The ‘little’ hand points directly to Arsene. A hidden message? Or perhaps this explains what he has been keeping underneath that puffy coat with the shit zipper.
