ARAMCO and FIFA announce multi-year partnership deal

The Saudi Arabian Oil Group, Aramco, has entered into a partnership deal with international football governing body, FIFA, to sponsor the men’s World Cup in 2026 and the Women’s World Cup in 2027.

The partnership deal, which is a four-year agreement, will see the oil giant becoming FIFA’s Major Worldwide Partner exclusively in the energy category.

Arbiterz understands that the new partnership deal is not Aramco’s first international sponsorship for recreation, as the Arabian company has existing sponsorship agreements within Formula 1 as well as being a standing partner of the International Cricket Council.

Amin H. Nasser, Aramco’s President & CEO, said the company’s ambition was to advance football development and utilize sports’ power to effect global change.
