Dubai-based Zoom to sponsor Taarabt
IT distributor agrees terms with QPR midfielder
Zoom Technology, the Dubai-based global IT distribution company, has signed a sponsorship agreement with one of the English Premier League's rising stars, Queens Park Rangers midfielder Adel Taarabt.
Taarabt, known as the Moroccan Magician, has made headlines this season with a string of notable performances for the London squad.
Zoom, which has offices in Dubai and Hong Kong, hopes the sponsorship deal with the player will raise its profile as it seeks to expand operations.
The deal was done after company CEO James Norris met Taarabt on QPR's pre-season tour of Malaysia and Indonesia.
"Natural ability and endless talent were the key factors in Zoom partnering with Adel," said Norris.
"Adel has an immensely bright future, he is a role model and exactly the kind of individual we want to be associated with, particularly as we now focus our efforts into new geographies - the Middle East and North Africa region being key."
Taarabt said: "I am grateful for the support of Zoom Technology and it was great to personally meet James and see the passion he has for football."
