"This is a critical moment for Abu Dhabi and for our media company," said Edward Borgerding, CEO of the Abu Dhabi Media Company. "We have established a partnership with the most thrilling championships in the world. We aim at sustaining our partnership with the English Premier League for many years by telecasting the league matches to the Arab World, to Arab families in the Middle East and North Africa," he added.
