IPIC and Borealis renew Al Jazira football team sponsorship for another season

The International Petroleum Investment Company (IPIC) and Borealis, a leading provider of chemical and innovative plastics solutions, have renewed their exclusive sponsorship contract of the Al Jazira Club in Abu Dhabi, UAE, starting with the upcoming 2011-2012 football season.

Created in 1974, the Al Jazira Club has since become a major influence in the sporting life of the UAE.  Aiming to be crowned champion in this season, the Al Jazira Club has hired a new head coach, Frank Vercauteren. The club has also invested in the future of football by establishing the Al Jazira Club Academy in 2004 to provide excellent education to talented football students.

“We are delighted to provide another round of our full support to the Al Jazira Club by renewing our sponsorship of its winning football team whose players seek to become champions of the UAE’s leagues and internationally,” says Khaleefa Al Mehairi IPIC Director of Human Resources & Administration. “Renewing our sponsorship of the Al Jazira football team reflects our dedication to supporting local and national sport infrastructure and related industries.”

“As part of the IPIC group of companies, we are proud to continue being a sponsor of this fine football team,” adds Borealis Chief Executive Mark Garrett. “As we continue to expand our interests in the Middle East and Asia, our presence in Abu Dhabi is growing considerably and it is inspiring to play a role in supporting the community and its sporting ambitions. Naturally we look forward to an exciting season as we watch Al Jazira competes for the championship.”

“We thank IPIC and Borealis for their significant continued contribution to supporting our success,” says Al Jazira Club CEO Phil Anderton. “It is our goal to deliver a first-class team that the UAE and these international sponsors can be proud of.”
