Iraqna To Be Major Sponsor of Iraqi National Football Teams
AMMAN, JORDAN – The Iraqi Football Association is pleased to announce a major
sponsorship initiative by Iraqna in agreeing to be an Associate Sponsor of the
Iraqi National Football Teams.
Mr Hussein Saeed, President of the Iraqi Football Association, said “Iraqi
football is enjoying a tremendous revival at this time, but we have many
challenges ahead to build on our success. This wonderful support from Iraqna is
crucial to our ability to continue to develop all our national football teams
for the future.”
Mr. Allan Richardson, CEO of Iraqna, a subsidiary of Orascom Telecom Holdings
Egypt, said “Iraqna is proud to support the Iraqi National Football Federation.
All of Iraqna wishes the utmost success to Iraq’s players and fans. I think it
is incredible what the national team has achieved in spite of all the obstacles
in their path and provides a great example of what is possible when everybody
Iraqna was recently awarded a two year licence to provide mobile
telecommunications services in Iraq and currently provides coverage to
approximately 200,000 subscribers in Baghdad, and the Al Unbar region. As an
Associate Sponsor, Iraqna will have exclusive sponsorship rights in the
telecommunications services sector and will be the official telecoms services
supplier to the Iraq National Football Teams (excluding the Iraqi Olympic Team,
which falls under existing TOP Programme sponsorship arrangements). The
sponsorship agreement is for two years, ending on 31 May 2006.
