Inter Milan could earn as much as €25-30 million from their partnership with Qatar Airways if they make the airline their main shirt sponsor during the 2024-25 season.
This according to Italian news outlet TuttoMercatoWeb. The outlet also reports that the Nerazzurri could still keep Paramount+ as a shirt sponsor, even if Qatar Airways replaces the streaming service on the front of the shirt.
Reportedly, Inter are very close to agreeing a commercial partnership with Qatar Airways.
The deal would see the Middle Eastern airline become the Nerazzurri’s official air carrier starting this season.
However, that is not all that could come of the deal.
As TMW notes, there would also be a possibility for a future shirt sponsorship deal.
Qatar Airways were reportedly among the companies who Inter were in talks with to replace DigitalBits as their main shirt sponsor during the summer.
In the end, it was Paramount+ who took the place of the cryptocurrency company. But given that the partnership with Paramount ends at the end of next June, Inter could soon be looking for yet another main shirt sponsor.
Inter Milan Could Earn €25-30M From Qatar Airways Shirt Sponsorship In 2024-25
Inter will either have to negotiate a new deal with Paramount+, or find a new main shirt sponsor for next season.
And given that Qatar Airways will now have their foot in the door, there could be an opportunity for the airline to become Inter’s new main shirt sponsor in place of Paramount+.
And according to TMW, Inter will seek to bring in at least €25-30 million from their main shirt sponsor next season.
That is the benchmark that the club have set. And they will target revenues in and around that figure for next season, whoever the sponsor ends up being.
TMW also note that Inter could still look to maintain their partnership with Paramount+. This could be the case even if Qatar Airways comes in as the club’s main shirt sponsor.
The reason for this is that the US-based streaming service gives the club’s brand significant exposure in the US market.
Therefore, TMW reports, Paramount+ could still remain on Inter’s shirt even if it is not on the front.
At the moment, eBay is Inter’s sleeve sponsor. And U-Power is the back shirt sponsor for the Nerazzurri.
