We are continually striving to boost our global sporting sponsorship portfolio, and this partnership, the first with any African sporting team, is just one more example of our dedication to the sports sector and our belief in the power of sport to bring people together. We look forward to working and engaging with the club and its fans to help make a real difference through this exciting new partnership. Sport is a key pillar of the long-term vision of the State of Qatar, and as Qatar’s national carrier, we welcome the opportunity to use sport as a means for youth development here in Qatar and around the world.”
