Tariq Al Mutawa, Manager of Kuwait and Iraq for Emirates said: “Our partnership with the West Asian Football Federation Championship is an opportunity to connect with football fans in Iraq and across the region who will be supporting their national teams. As the most popular sport in the world, football continues to reach more fans each year, and is the best platform to enable the Emirates brand to gain visibility and continue to grow in this region and beyond.”

The sponsorship deal gives Emirates brand visibility at each match venue with on-site stadium advertising starting on 2 August. The airline will also have strong brand presence across print and TV platforms, with the event being broadcasted live across 16 channels in the region.  Additionally, Emirates will benefit from digital and social media activation rights on the West Asian Football Federation platforms.

Emirates’ sponsorship portfolio is made of top sporting clubs, tournaments and high profile cultural events worldwide.
