UAE FA banks Al Hilal extension

Abu-Dhabi based Al Hilal Bank has renewed its sponsorship of the UAE Football Association for a sixth consecutive year.

Under the terms of the agreement, the government-owned institution will continue its sponsorship of the UAEFA President’s Cup, along with its support for the UAE’s national and Olympic football teams.

The financial terms of the deal were undisclosed.

The President’s Cup is the premier knockout club competition for teams playing under the UAEFA’s jurisdiction and eight-time champion Al-Ain won the 2012-13 edition.

UAE qualified for its first Olympic football tournament at London 2012 and performed creditably, losing narrowly to Uruguay and Great Britain and drawing against Senegal before bowing out at the group stage.
