Sponsorship deal covers two matches to be played in Wembley this autumn


Global broker Aon has extended its partnership with American football governing body the National Football League (NFL).

The company will sponsor the two sold-out NFL games to be played at Wembley in London this autumn. Aon also sponsored the International Series played in the capital last year.

Aon global director of sponsorship Patrick Pierce said: “The NFL understands that the issues Aon helps clients with every day, which are core to our business – talent, health, risk, retirement, data and analytics and capital – also drive successful performance and results in sports.

“One of the shared qualities of sport and business is that the outcome is unknown. Managing this risk successfully allows a great team to deliver great results, whether on the field of play or at work. We are thrilled to further our partnership with the NFL and again demonstrate the capabilities that empower results for Aon’s clients in the UK and around the world.”

NFL international commercial director Marc Reeves said: “Last year, we witnessed Aon’s enormous passion for this partnership and its ability to help the NFL bring tremendous cross-cultural experiences to a new market. Aon is a committed and engaged partner, and we are pleased to be aligned with a global firm that shares our interest in introducing the UK and Aon’s clients, markets and colleagues to American football and the NFL.

“We look forward to working with Aon as we continue to spread our sport’s presence in the UK and around the globe.” 

This year’s International Series matches will see the Minnesota Vikings host the Pittsburgh Steelers on 29 September, and the Jacksonville Jaguars host the San Francisco 49ers on 28 October.
