Liverpool Football Club and Carlsberg toast twenty-one year partnership

Liverpool Football Club and leading international beer brand Carlsberg have celebrated their partnership of twenty-one years by announcing a three year extension to Carlsberg's long-term sponsorship.

Already the longest serving partnership of any Barclays Premier League club, it has now been extended to run until the end of the 2015/16 season, a total of twenty-four seasons.

For seventeen years Carlsberg were Liverpool FC's shirt sponsor, until 2010 when they became the Reds' official beer partner. During those twenty-one seasons, it is estimated that over 5.7 million pints of Carlsberg have been served at Anfield, which is more than enough to fill an Olympic sized swimming pool (2,500,000L).

"Our relationship with Liverpool FC started in 1992. It was Carlsberg's very first connection to English football an affiliation which has grown significantly. Over two decades later we are thrilled to be continuing our partnership with a club that has over 120 years of heritage and one of the biggest followings in football, both in the UK and around the world", says Mike Thompson, Marketing Director for Carlsberg.
