Arsenal have announced solar power experts Octopus Energy as their official energy partner in the UK.

Arsenal supporters in the UK will soon benefit from a new tariff from Octopus Energy that will provide them with the same renewable electricity that will power Emirates Stadium. As part of this, fans will also be offered a range of club-related benefits including official signed merchandise and VIP stadium tours.


The partnership will also give Octopus Energy branding at all domestic fixtures played at Emirates Stadium and hospitality on some match days. In addition, they will be able to access Arsenal’s digital channels and run promotional activities and marketing initiatives featuring first-team players.

Vinai Venkatesham, Arsenal’s Chief Commercial Officer, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Octopus Energy, who become our first official energy partner. This partnership with Octopus is a positive step towards improving our contribution to environmental sustainability. We will be working closely with them to develop renewable power supplies, as well as providing special offers for Arsenal fans in the UK. We look forward to supporting Octopus Energy in the growth of their business.”
