Ooredoo extends backing of Qatar FA

Telco Ooredoo has agreed a two-year extension to its partnership with the Qatar Football Association.

The contract covers 2019 and 2020 and will see the Qatari company continue to back its national team, which claimed a landmark title at the Asian Cup earlier this year.

Qatar is due to compete as a guest team in the 2019 Copa América, which takes place in Brazil from June 14 to July 7.

Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa bin Ahmed Al Thani, president of the QFA, said: “I would like to thank Ooredoo for their great support to the national football team, which highlights our decade-long relationship with the leading telecom brand.

“We look forward to more cooperation and work with our partner Ooredoo to support Qatari football. This sponsorship demonstrates the company’s commitment to support Qatari sports in general, and football in particular.”
