AirAsia welcomes Singapore FA aboard

Low-cost airline AirAsia has sealed a three-year sponsorship with the Football Association of Singapore worth S$1.8m (€1.1m/$1.4m).

The deal includes flights for Singapore’s national teams at senior, Under-23 and Under-21 level, while the same provision is made for the country’s women’s team and national football academy age-group sides.

Fans also stand to benefit from the agreement – which runs until May 31, 2016 – with AirAsia offering special travel packages for Singapore supporters travelling to away matches in the region.
