AirAsia is set to be the official partner of Queens Park Rangers Football Club (QPR) with the sponsorship of its official ‘away’ and ‘third’ shirt, as announced by the airline at the football club’s Loftus Road Stadium in London today.
Queens Park Rangers Football Club returned to top flight football in the English Premier League for the first time in 15 years after clinching the 2010 / 2011 npower Championship. The partnership with AirAsia is set to give the club the added support to continue their fight in the top tier competition.
QPR CEO Philip Beard expressed his delight at the new deal. He said, “This is a unique and exciting venture for the Football Club. Attracting two major Asian companies to come on board shows the global appeal QPR has as a brand. We are extremely positive about building a thriving relationship with both businesses in a bid to broaden our exposure in Southeast Asia and further afield. This is a remarkable deal for the Club and brings further positive news following a highly successful few weeks since the takeover was finalised.”
