The International Petroleum Investment Company (IPIC) and Borealis, a leading provider of innovative, value creating plastics solutions, have agreed to a three-year, exclusive main sponsorship of the Al Jazira football club in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates (UAE), starting with the upcoming 2008-2009 football season.

"This sponsorship is a sign of our dedication to supporting the local and national sport infrastructure and related industries. It is good news for Abu Dhabi and good news for the UAE."

"We are proud to be a sponsor of this fine football establishment together with IPIC, one of our Owners," adds Borealis Chief Executive Mark Garrett. "As we expand our interests in the Middle East and Asia, our presence in Abu Dhabi is growing considerably and it is additionally 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 compete for the championship."
