According to the news, Qatar Airways will be the main sponsor and will also appear on FC Barcelona's shirts for the season 2013/2014. This will be the first time a business company will appear on the jersey's of the Catalan club.

This raises a few questions:

Does this affect the sponsorship of Turkish Airlines, or can we expect Messi flying a TK airplane while wearing a Qatar Airways shirt?

Is there any other airline out there from who we can expect a sponsorship for a soccer team in Europe? Emirates, Etihad and now Qatar!!!

What are your opinions...

Interesting, as Barca have have had a non-profit deal with Unicef for as long as I can remember! Qatar also have their logo on the roof of Brentford's Griffin Park, which is visible from aircraft landing on 27R at Heathrow.

Well this season they are sponsored by Qatar Foundation, although they do have Unicef on the back.

A few airlines that have sponsored football (soccer) teams include:
Queens Park Rangers (QPR) - Air Asia, previously Malaysia Airlines & Gulf Air
AC Milan, Arsenal, PSG, HSV, Chelsea (previously) - Emirates
Southampton & Birmingham City - Flybe (previously)
Tottenham Hotspur - Thomson (although holidays, previously)
Luton Town - easyJet
Manchester City - Etihad Airways

Just a few, there are several others too.

AFAIK, with the arrival of the Qatar sponsorship, TK won't be there.

I believe Real Madrid and Olympiakos will be added to that list next year.



If it ain't Dutch, it ain't much.

Airbus sponsors Broughton F.C. Their logo has an A380 on it  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Airbus_UK_Broughton_F.C.

PSG

Interestingly, Paris Saint-Germain is owned by the Qatar Investment Authority, who I believe own part of Qatar Airways.

If I'm not mistaken, AA sponsors Fulham in the EPL, though they are not the shirt-sponsor. I know that LH is a big sponsor of Bayern Munich, though again not the shirt sponsor.

I've seen AA advertising on the side boards at Fulham home matches. Also, there are Delta ads at Stamford Bridge. I believe DL is the "official travel partner" of Chelsea, or something like that.


Did I have a dream...or did the dream have me??
