The Premier League has agreed to extend its current sponsorship deal with Barclays until the end of the 2009/10 season.
The new deal, effectively an extension of the current contract, will be worth £65.8 million to the Premier League.
Barclays president Bob Diamond said the the deal tied in with the company’s expanding international business.
“We all know about the fantastic appeal of the Barclays Premiership in the UK but this sponsorship also fits our international presence and aspirations particularly in Asia and continental Europe,” he said.
The bank will also sponsor the pre-season Premier League Asia Trophy, which will be played in the close-season next year.
“The Premier League has a big fan base in Asia and this is a chance for them to see Premier League teams,” a spokesman for the body said.
