AS Roma and Qatar Airways are delighted to announce a multi-year partnership that will see Qatar Airways become the club’s official shirt sponsor.
The sponsorship, the largest ever signed by the club and one of the biggest ever agreed by an Italian football club, will see the airline’s logo adorn the front of the first team’s shirts until the end of the 2020-21 season.
Launched in 1997, Qatar Airways is one of the youngest global airlines to serve all six continents and connects over 150 destinations on the map every day. One of an elite group of airlines worldwide to have earned a 5-star rating by Skytrax, Qatar Airways was voted Airline of the Year in 2011, 2012, 2015 and 2017.
Under the terms of the deal, Qatar Airways becomes Roma’s Main Global Partner and will be only the seventh shirt sponsor in the club’s 90-year history.
Formed in 1927, Roma is one of Italy’s most successful football clubs, winning three Serie A titles, nine Coppa Italia crowns, and regularly competing in the UEFA Champions League.
The new partnership will enable Qatar Airways to engage with the club’s 263 million fans worldwide and help Roma reach millions of potential new fans across the globe.
The agreement also further strengthens Qatar Airways’ commitment to Italy. The airline currently flies twice a day to Rome and Milan, as well as daily to Venice and Pisa. Qatar Airways last year announced the acquisition of 49 per cent of AQA Holding, the new parent company of Air Italy.
