Omantel extends backing of Oman football league

Omani telecommunications company Omantel has renewed its partnership with the Oman Football Association (OFA), through which it will continue to title sponsor the country’s top-tier Professional League.

Under the new three-year agreement, the competition will continue to be officially known as the Omantel League until the end of the 2021-22 season.

Omantel has been the title sponsor of the 14-team league since 2008. Financial terms of the new agreement, which was signed at Omantel’s headquarters, were not disclosed.

Omantel’s previous deal expired at the end of the 2018-19 season. The new campaign gets underway with the Super Cup match between league champions Dhofar and cup winners Sur on September 13.
