LIVERPOOL, United Kingdom, May 24- English Premier League side Liverpool FC have renewed their shirt sponsorship package with Standard Chartered Bank for a further four years, a partnership that will go through to the 2022/23 season.

The Bank first signed up as the Club’s main sponsor in July 2010, and the agreement was extended in 2013 and again in 2015. Financial terms of the agreement remain confidential.

Liverpool FC has a large number of fans across Standard Chartered’s core markets in Asia, Africa and the Middle East and the sponsorship provides the Bank with an opportunity to accelerate visibility of its brand, improving recognition across key markets around the world.

Additionally, over the last eight years Standard Chartered and Liverpool FC have used their partnership to support a number of the Bank’s sustainability and community investment programmes.
