Ravi Menon, Co-chairman of Sobha Realty, Francis Alfred, Managing Director of Sobha Realty and Juliet Slot, Chief Commercial Officer of Arsenal, were joined by Arsenal legend Sol Campbell to sign the multi-year agreement that will see Sobha Realty become the club’s Official Global Real Estate Partner.
As part of this partnership, Sobha Realty’s presence will be at all men’s and women’s domestic games played at Emirates Stadium.

Our collaboration is a crucial step towards promoting excellence and growth in both, real estate and sport. We have seen a heightened interest for Dubai Real Estate from the UK consumers & with this partnership with Arsenal, we look forward to strengthening our brand in the UK & surrounding markets. We are very excited for this partnership & we hope to reach new heights and present a promising opportunity for Dubai’s talented football community.”To celebrate the partnership, a 1000-strong drone show will light up the sky above Jumeirah beach Residences in Dubai this evening (Friday, September 15).
