It seems like we blog about Emirates airlines everyday.
It’s not our fault. They’ve got a very active marketing communications strategy, with a huge budget!
This is not a new story, but it’s being highlighted now by media in the UAE amidst the World Cup hysteria.
Emirates will be one of just six sponsors for the next two FIFA World Cup tournaments, in 2010 and 2014, at a cost of around $100m per tournament.
Emirates becomes the sixth and final FIFA Partner, joining adidas, Hyundai, Sony, Coca-Cola and Visa.
The current tournament has 15 sponsors, including Emirates, with each sponsor reported to be paying between $45 to $50m.
