SPONSORSHIP NEWS: Tottenham Hotspur signs Autonomy Corporation as shirt sponsor
Tottenham Hotspur Football Club has named enterprise infrastructure software provider Autonomy Corporation as its new shirt sponsor.
The two-year shirt sponsorship deal, effective from Season 2010/2011, will see the Autonomy brand feature on the Tottenham Hotspur shirt in Barclays Premier League matches and in doing so will become the fifth brand ever to appear on the Club's shirt. The agreement also includes a mutual option to extend the partnership for a further three-year period.
Autonomy is the UK's largest, pure software company, with over 20,000 global customers and offices worldwide. As part of the relationship, Autonomy will work with Tottenham Hotspur across a wide range of activities including significant consultancy support for enhanced services to fans and for the Club's new stadium and training centre developments.
Daniel Levy, chairman, Tottenham Hotspur, said: "We are delighted to have Autonomy as our new global partner. I have been impressed with Autonomy's vision and growth for many years, having previously been an investor.
"Autonomy is the leader in its field and as such is the ideal partner for Tottenham Hotspur at a time when we continue to grow our existing operations and facilities with two major capital expenditure projects underway - a new Training Centre under construction and proposed new Stadium development - both of which will include state-of-the-art technology as part of their world-class designs."
