It is one of the most popular English Premier League clubs in India and has been named as one of the most trusted football clubs in India across successive seasons. Dream Theatre, which operates in the spaces of entertainment, sports, and lifestyle licensing in India and South Asia and works with some iconic intranational and national IPs, will leverage its prowess and experience in licensing to drive the Liverpool Football Club licensing programme in India.
“We are very proud and thrilled to be working with Liverpool Football Club, the Champions of Europe. The club has such a strong legacy and a very passionate fan base in India.

Liverpool FC senior VP merchandising Mike Cox said, “We’re delighted to welcome Dream Theatre to our global football and retail family. Relationships like this are incredibly important to the club to ensure that we can bring LFC closer to all our supporters who are based across the world, not just at home in Liverpool.”
