IKOLI VICTOR

DOHA THE Qatar Football Association signed a massive three-year partnership agreement with Qatar National Bank (QNB) as its strategic sponsor for Qatar’s national teams and all domestic football championships.

Qatar National Bank Group Chief Executive Officier Ali Shareef al Emadi and Qatar Football Association & Qatar Stars President Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa bin Ahmed al Thani signed the sponsorship agreement. The deal means that QNB is the sponsor for the Qatar National football team, Emir Cup, Heir Apparent Cup and Sheikh Jassim Cup and Qatar Stars League, besides being an exclusive sponsor of Qatar Stars Cup.

QFA chief Sheikh Hamad thanked the Qatar National Bank and its CEO Emadi for continuing its outstanding commitment and support to football in Qatar.

“The backing from Qatar National Bank does not surprise him and participants because of its rich history of involvement in the events organised in Qatar. This sponsorship would have a very positive effect on clubs and tournaments conducted by the QFA and the QSL management,” Sheikh Hamad said.

The QFA boss urged all the Qatari companies and organizations to follow the example of QNB for its solid and continued support to community activities, which include sports and underline the nation’s progress.

QNB CEO Emadi said that the sponsorship of the QFA activities is a continued commitment due to the bank’s policy of backing the country in its domestic sports activities and tournaments. “We always strive to achieve Qatar’s ultimate goal through sports association”.

The CEO also added: “The achievements of the QFA over the past years, in addition to the role of clubs and the Qatar national teams and its development, have attracted the attention of sports communities locally and internationally.

“This is the primary objective for the bank’s partnership by giving football in Qatar the kind of support it needed to progress and develop to achieve its global goals. The QNB will strengthen its presence in all the football matches and activities under the umbrella the QFA,” the CEO said.

He also said: “The QNB strongly supports the idea of strengthening sporting partnerships.

I hope that this alliance will be a great example for others in the market place who believes in putting Qatar on the map as a country of sporting excellence.”
