AIA sponsorship is stain on Spurs shirts

AIA sponsorship is stain on Spurs shirts, say Kick Out Coal campaigners

"The logo of AIA has been emblazoned across the chests of Harry Kane, Hugo Lloris and teammates since 2013. But campaigners say it risks becoming a source of shame for the club, because the Hong Kong-based insurance company holds a stake of at least $3bn in coal projects.

The AIA Kick Out Coal campaign, which comprises several divestment groups, says this “dirty secret” stains the shirt of Tottenham, which has otherwise gone further than almost any other club in its commitment to climate action."

Along with Champions League sponsor Gazprom, next World Cup host Qatar and several other Premier League shirt sponsors, AIA are an example for climate villains using football to launder their image. Tottenham Hotspur is a climate champion among football clubs and could set an example by calling on their sponsor to clean up their coal business.”

Companies using football to hide their dirty secrets, very interesting
