Rwanda to sponsor Arsenal's new sleeve
Arsenal has announced that ‘Visit Rwanda’ has become the club’s official tourism partner.

The club’s commercial manager, Vinai Venkatesham, said of the deal, “This is an exciting partnership which will see us support Rwanda’s ambition to build their tourism industry. The country has been transformed in recent years and Arsenal’s huge following will bring Rwanda into people’s minds in a new and dynamic way. The Arsenal shirt is seen 35 million times a day globally and we are one of the most viewed teams around the world. We look forward to working with the ‘Visit Rwanda’ team to further establish the country as a leading tourist destination.”
The financial terms of the deal are not revealed.
