FIFA has extended its sponsorship deal with Visa until the 2022 World Cup, FIFA President Sepp Blatter announced on Tuesday.
The deal secures Visa global marketing rights for the 2018 World Cup in Russia and the 2022 edition in Qatar, having first become partners with the governing body in 2007.
Blatter said of the deal: "We are delighted to have reached this agreement with our valued partner, Visa."
"Visa's huge global network and engaging consumer programmes play a significant role in bringing the FIFA World Cup to all corners of the globe, and we're delighted to have such a strong global brand by our side until at least 2022."
"With football's unique power to inspire people everywhere, Visa couldn't be more excited to extend its relationship with FIFA," said Ricardo Fort, senior vice president, Global Sponsorship Marketing at Visa Inc.
Visa is the fourth of FIFA's top level commercial partners to have committed to both the 2018 and 2022 World Cups, following Adidas, Coca-Cola, Hyundai-Kia and Anheuser-Busch InBev.
