In relation to this announcement, Claudio Tapia, President of AFA, said: "It is important to highlight the global expansion we have achieved today with a company like American Express. We are proud of the support and trust that Amex is giving us as the Global Sponsor of the National Teams. For AFA, it is essential to continue adding the support of companies of this level, and we are proud to announce this expansion at the Amex headquarters in the United States. We thank American Express and the entire management team, and we are confident that we will continue building a successful sponsorship for both of us”.

Mohammed Badi, President of Global Network Services at American Express, said: "Our expanded sponsorship of the Argentine National Team will elevate the American Express brand globally and extend the benefits of membership to more people around the world. We look forward to cheering them on and will be by their side as the team continues its success following the World Cup win in 2022.”

In regard to the importance of this agreement for the AFA brand, Leandro Petersen, AFA's Commercial and Marketing Manager, said: "The sponsorship, which we are celebrating in New York, is a testament to the global reach of the AFA brand in strategic territories such as the United States, the Middle East, China, and India, where we reaffirm our leadership day after day. The AFA brand is now consolidated globally with more than 50 top-level commercial sponsors. This agreement will allow American Express Card Members to access exclusive experiences and be closer to their idols, one of the objectives pursued by AFA.”
