Boca Juniors Announce Qatar Airways Shirt Sponsor Deal
Confirming previous rumors, Argentinian giants Boca Juniors yesterday announced a long-term partnership with Qatar Airways. Qatar Airways will replace financial services company BBVA, which has sponsored Boca since 2012.
The deal follows last month’s announcement of a Qatar Airways' shirt sponsorship of Roma, which the Italian club described as their largest ever sponsorship deal.
