Etihad Sponsorship Deal

Google language translator


Manchester City FC hopes to strike a record sponsorship deal with Etihad, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates.

Although talks are described as 'very early' and several other companies are also in contention, Etihad's links to the Abu Dhabi United Group (ADUG) have established the airline as favourites to replace Thomas Cook as shirt sponsors.

The proposed new agreement could be the biggest of its kind in English football, beating Manchester United's 56.5m four-year deal with AIG.

I really dont think this would be benificial to the club. ok 50 odd million pounds are given to us? but its from the same source as the owners? We might want to look for something completly different to anything. It just dont fill me with excitment to know that our official sponsors and the income is coming from the owners? ....

Why the heck do you a large sponsorship deal if your owner already has so much money? Preparing for when he bails on you??
