I can't imagine Emirates having anywhere near the largess it had pre-covid to maintain a similar level of sponsorship than it did last time.Fair enough. So can you come up with a sensible explanation for Emirates staying as lead sponsor, yet the team has no money.
Bnottrying to throw shit, but hard to see how Emirates could keep the spot and turn off the cash flow at the same time. If there was no contractual reason they would have been kicked to the kerb by now. Plus Dalts would have been schmoozing other big name sponsors. Instead he is trying to squeeze a venue to pay for everything.
I could easily imagine they are no longer sponsors at all, or severely diminished but still present as a mutual show of good-faith.
The suggestion of missing 'contractual targets' is the part I was poking holes in.
Getting sponsors is now hard (https://sponsorship.org/resources/the-future-of-the-sports-industry-in-a-post-covid-world-mediacom-se/, https://www.warc.com/newsandopinion/opinion/how-sponsorship-marketing-can-rediscover-its-stride-in-2021/en-gb/3958) (just ask SGP), especially when you don't even have a venue locked in. If you can get a venue/host to cover the major costs then thats a great start.
