Qatar Airways Announces Partnership with Football Sporting Giants Boca Juniors

DOHA, Qatar – Qatar Airways is further strengthening its sporting partnerships around the world with the announcement that from the upcoming season (2018/19) it will become the Official Jersey Sponsor of the world-renowned Argentinian football club the Boca Juniors through the 2022/23 season.

The new partnership further strengthens Qatar Airways’ global partnership portfolio and will see the airline’s logo proudly appear on the club’s jerseys, allowing the Qatar Airways brand to be seen by millions of football fans around the world, while championing the airline’s belief of sports as a means of bringing people together.

Qatar Airways has long celebrated strong ties with the South American continent, where it flies daily to São Paulo and to the capital of Argentina, Buenos Aires, since 2010. Qatar Airways Group further strengthened these ties in December 2016 through a strategic investment by acquiring 10 per cent of South American LATAM Airlines Group.   

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, said: “Qatar Airways is delighted to partner with world-renowned Football Club Boca Juniors as we enhance our sporting sponsorship portfolio with the world’s best teams. We are excited to further expand our presence in South America with our brand represented on the club’s jerseys, and look forward to supporting the Boca Juniors in their forthcoming seasons.”

Boca Juniors President, Mr. Daniel Angelici, said: “We are very proud and grateful that one of the most prestigious airlines in the world has chosen Boca Juniors as part of their regional expansion strategy in South America. We are sure this agreement will be very fruitful for both institutions in fulfilling their objectives and goals.”

Qatar Airways is already renowned for championing sport as a means of connecting communities around the world. Qatar itself celebrates a dedicated National Sports Day each year, while the airline already partners with other football club giants such as leading German football team FC Bayern Munich AG, of which it is a Platinum Partner, and as announced in April, as Main Global Partner of AS Roma, with the airline’s logo appearing on the team’s shirts.

Qatar Airways is also the Official Airline Partner of FIFA, which includes 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™, the FIFA Club World Cup™, the FIFA Women’s World Cup™ and the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar™, as well as the Formula E electric street racing series.

Qatar Airways proudly flies one of the youngest fleets in the sky, featuring the world’s most technologically-advanced and environmentally friendly aircraft. The airline operates a fleet of more than 200 modern aircraft to a network of more than 150 key business and leisure destinations across Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia Pacific, North America and South America.

As well as being voted Skytrax ‘Airline of the Year’ in 2017 by travellers from around the world, Qatar’s national flag carrier also won a raft of other major awards at last year’s ceremony, including ‘Best Airline in the Middle East,’ ‘World’s Best Business Class’ and ‘World’s Best First Class Airline Lounge.’
