Emirates Sponsored New York Cosmos make Football Debut in NYC

Emirates Airline and the New York Cosmos football club have announced a sponsorship deal to make Emirates a Founding Partner and jersey-front sponsor of the club.

The Cosmos began play in 1971, spending 14 seasons in the earlier NASL, winning five Football Bowl trophies and bringing some of the biggest names in world football history to North America including Pelé, Franz Beckenbauer, Carlos Alberto and Giorgio Chinaglia.

The Cosmos last won the NASL Football Bowl in 1982. It’s been nearly 30 years since the Cosmos, an iconic global football club, have played in a professional league. Yet throughout their absence, the club has maintained a loyal and dedicated fan following. On 3 August the New York Cosmos returned to the NASL in their first official season match against the Fort Lauderdale Strikers, winning 2-1.
