Arsenal agree three-year partnership with Indonesian bank Muamalat

Arsenal have announced a three-year partnership with PT Bank Muamalat Indonesia TBK to issue co-branded debit cards in Indonesia.

The partnership with the current Premier League leaders will offer a range of club-related benefits, including official merchandise and match tickets at the Emirates Stadium to Bank Muamalat's customers and Indonesia's Arsenal fans.

Bank Muamalat said it will also come up with innovative marketing initiatives and customer promotions along with generating content with Arsenal's first-team players to engage the club's Indonesian database.

Arsenal will also send coaches to Indonesia to conduct football clinics on behalf of Bank Muamalat.

Vinai Venkatesham, Chief Commercial Officer at Arsenal, told the club's official website: "We are delighted to welcome Bank Muamalat to our family of commercial partners. Bank Muamalat is a well-established bank in Indonesia with a stable and ever increasing customer base.

"This is the second partnership we have concluded in Indonesia this season and underlines the level of support we have in the country.

"With more Indonesian fans following Arsenal on Facebook than in any other country, we have a significant opportunity to engage further with our supporters through this partnership with Bank Muamalat."

Endy Abdurrahman, CEO of Bank Muamalat, added: "Bank Muamalat strives to give the best experience to customers through collaboration with selected partners in order to achieve our vision of becoming a top ten bank in Indonesia.

"Arsenal, as one of the best football clubs in the world with brilliant performances in the Barclays Premier League, is the right partner for the Bank to increase business growth primarily in the youth segment by becoming the first Islamic bank in Indonesia to co-brand with an international football club."
