Qatar Airways signs deal with FIFA
    2017-May-9  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

QATAR Airways said Sunday it has signed a deal with global soccer body FIFA to be one of the official sponsors and the official airline of the next two World Cups, in Russia and Qatar.

The state-owned carrier did not disclose the value of the deal, which it said would cover the Confederations Cup 2017, the 2018 World Cup in Russia, the Club World Cup and the Women’s World Cup in 2019 and the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

The airline joins Coca-Cola, Gazprom, Chinese conglomerate Wanda Group, Adidas, Visa and Hyundai as official partners of FIFA, the highest of the three tiers of FIFA sponsorship.

Rival Middle East carrier Emirates was a FIFA sponsor until 2014 when it said it would not renew its contract following months of calls for sponsors to respond to allegations of bribery to secure the 2022 World Cup for Qatar. Emirates said in 2015 it could be interested in renewing a deal to sponsor the World Cup in the future.

Qatar Airways is a major sponsor of Spanish soccer team Barcelona.
