Standard Chartered renew Liverpool FC partnership

Liverpool have signed a new three-year deal with Standard Chartered Bank to continue as the Premier League team’s shirt sponsor.

The bank’s logo has appeared on Liverpool shirts since 2010, and the contract extension runs until May 2019.

The current deal is worth about £20m a season, but financial details of the new contracts were not disclosed.

Liverpool have won only one trophy since its sponsorship with Standard Chartered began – the 2012 League Cup – and have qualified for the Champions League once.
