Qatar supports Asian Football Confederation

Bishkek (AKIpress) - AFC Qatar Petroleum has signed a three-year agreement to become a Commercial Partner of the Asian Football Confederation (AFC), becoming the latest backer of the continental body's club and national team programs, Zawya reported today.

The agreement was completed at the start of the 2014 season and sees Qatar Petroleum, Qatargas and RasGas, join other leading firms in sponsoring the Kuala Lumpur-based AFC and tournaments such as the AFC Asian Cup, the AFC Champions League and AFC Cup.

Mohammed bin Saleh Al-Sada, Minister of Energy and Industry and the Chairman of Qatar Petroleum, said the agreement is “an important landmark in QP's support of sports, particularly football.”

“We are delighted to welcome Qatar Petroleum, who become the latest elite brand to join the Asian football family as one of our highly valued commercial partners,” said AFC General Secretary, Dato' Alex Soosay. “We are sure the relationship between the AFC and Qatar Petroleum will be mutually beneficial and we look forward to a long and fruitful relationship.”

The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) is the governing body of association football in Asia. It has 47 member countries, mostly located on the Asian continent. All the transcontinental countries with territory in both Europe and Asia are members of UEFA (Azerbaijan, Armenia, Georgia, Israel, Kazakhstan, Russia and Turkey). One of FIFA's six continental confederations, the AFC was formed officially in 1954 in Philippines.
