posted on 31/07/2007: 2075 views



Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, has signed a three-year deal to be the main sponsor of English premiership rugby union team, Harlequins.

The 'seven figure' deal is Etihad's first major sporting sponsorship deal in the UK and the biggest in Harlequins' history. It will see the airline's logo emblazoned on Harlequins' famous quartered shirt as well as on the Twickenham Stoop stadium in south west London. The deal was announced today (Monday) at a press conference held at the Twickenham Stoop which was attended by James Hogan, Etihad Airways' chief executive, Mark Evans, Harlequins' chief executive, and Dean Richards, Harlequins' director of rugby.

James Hogan said: 'This new partnership with Harlequins will provide Etihad Airways with an ideal international platform to connect with our customers in the UK and around the world. Among the highlights of the partnership will be the branding of the stadium roof, which is placed under the London Heathrow airport flight path, in Etihad livery. The East Stand of the Twickenham Stoop will also be renamed the Etihad Stand. (AMEInfo.com)
