Hammers hold their own in sponsor stakes

West Ham's shirt sponsor deal with Betway is one of the most lucrative in the Premier League outside the established 'top six', it has been revealed.

The Hammers, who draw around 10million per year from the gambling company as part of the deal are some considerable way behind six Premier League clubs in terms of maximising revenue from sponsorship.

Manchester United (47million per year, Chevrolet) lead the pack whilst Spurs (35million, AIA) West Ham's closest rival earn nearly four times as much as United through annual shirt sponsor revenue.

However West Ham lead the remainder of the Premier League, whilst Huddersfield and Brighton make the least through shirt sponsorship; their deals with Maltese company Ope Sports and American Express respectively earns the two clubs, both of whom were promoted last season just 1.5million per annum.

In total, NINE gambling firms are featured on the shirts of Premier League clubs with financial institutions the second most popular field for sponsors.
