Turkish Airlines is to become an official sponsor of Manchester United Football Club.
January 25: Turkish Airlines announced that it is to become an official sponsor of Manchester United Football Club, one of the top soccer teams in the UK’s Premier League and perhaps the best-known in the world.
In the three and a half year sponsorship deal, Turkish Airlines’ logo will be displayed on the internal screens of the Old Trafford Stadium in Manchester and the airline will also make TV commercials with the players. Turkish Airlines will also transport the players to tournaments and training camps as the team’s official carrier.
The announcement follows a similar deal with Spanish club FC Barcelona, so it could get interesting if the two clubs meet in international competition!
