Qatari telecom operator Ooredoo today announced it will sponsor the 2012/2013 Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain.

H.E. Sheikh Abdullah Bin Mohammed Bin Saud Al Thani, chairman, Ooredoo, and Nasser Al-Khelaifi, president, Paris Saint-Germain, announced the partnership, which will run through to 2018.

A major focus of the agreement will be the development of youth and community support, as Ooredoo and Paris Saint-Germain will launch a community coaching programme across Ooredoo’s footprint in the Middle East, North Africa, and Southeast Asia that will include football clinics for young people.

Ooredoo and Paris Saint-Germain pledged to bring qualified coaches and Paris Saint-Germain training programmes to a number of key markets, with a focus on outreach to underserved communities.

The Ooredoo logo will appear on the backs of Paris Saint-Germain team shirts and on the sleeves of their training kits, and at the team’s Parc des Princes Stadium on the pitch side LED system. The team’s training complex “Camp des Loges” will also be renamed the “Ooredoo Training Center”.

“Football brings people together from all nations and all walks of life, and we have found a great sponsorship partner in Paris Saint-Germain,” said Sheikh Abdullah.
