Arsenal join forces with Universal Pictures

137

According to The Drum, Arsenal have entered an agreement with Universal Pictures that will see the club promote the film company’s latest movies.

The partnership, which appears to be similar to one that Manchester United have with 20th Century Fox, means we could well be seeing Arsenal players appear in bespoke trailers. Not the motor vehicle kind.

“This partnership with Illumination and Universal Pictures is the first of its kind for the club and one we are extremely excited about,” said Vinai Venkatesham, Arsenal’s chief commercial officer.

“It’s a fantastic opportunity for both the club and the studio to be introduced to new audiences and we are already working closely with them to engage with our supporters in the UK and Ireland around their upcoming film releases.”

You may have seen pre-roll adverts for the Despicable Me franchise on Arsenal Player recently and characters from the film parading around the Emirates pitch with Gunnersaurus at half-time of a few games last season. No doubt, we can expect more of the same.

It also sounds as though the Arsenal social channels and the pitchside advertising hoardings will push Universal content.

Naturally, our minds turn to Arsenal movie puns…

I honestly can’t tell if this is serious or not.

If it is, let’s hope to goodnees we don’t start seeing Gunners appearing in adverts like that sickening Nivea promotion “starring” Liverpudlians trying to look like gods.

I guess making a movie about football and the premier league in which our player’s are involved is the best chance we’ll have of seeing another league title won at Arsenal under Wenger.
