02 Sep 2013

UAE Pro League club Al Nasr has agreed a one-year extension to its partnership with Emirates NBD which will see the banking group continue as its main sponsor.

Dubai-based Al Nasr is the UAE’s oldest football club and Emirates NBD will take its backing of the team into a fifth consecutive year. During the 2013-14 Pro League season, which begins later this month, Emirates NBD said it will support Al Nasr’s activities through its social media platform, offering a host of special offers and tickets to home games through online competitions. Additionally, the bank plans to launch initiatives taking Al Nasr stars to selected communities, schools and special needs organisations.

“We at Emirates NBD share an endless passion for football with hundreds of thousands of fans across the United Arab Emirates,” said Saif Al Mansoori, deputy head of group marketing and branding at Emirates NBD. “As a leading bank in the region, we have been actively involved in supporting sports activities that are of interest to the UAE community. We are therefore delighted once again, to be the main sponsor of the Al Nasr Football Company and look forward to a successful season ahead.”

Ahmed Hashim Khoury, vice-chairman of Al Nasr Club and Al Nasr Football Company, added: “We are confident that our strategic partnership with the leading financial institution in the region will boost Al Nasr’s bid to be among the top three teams this football season and will strengthen our position as one of the most powerful football clubs in the UAE.”
