Ooredoo dialled in for Qatar Stars League naming rights

June 27 – The Qatar Stars League (QSL) has announced Qatar government-backed telecommunications company Ooredoo as its new title sponsor.

Ooredoo takes over from Qatar National Bank (QNB), which previously held the role for an extended period before a one-year break.

No value or timeframe was given to the deal.

The agreement was announced Tuesday in the presence of Sheikh Ali bin Jabor al-Thani, CEO of Ooredoo Qatar and Jassim bin Rashid al-Buenain, President of Qatar Football Association and QSL.

“We’re proud of this strategic partnership with one of the largest companies in the region and the world, the pioneer of communications in Qatar,” Al Buenain said. “We’re proud of its many great successes and its role in supporting sports and athletes.”

Ooredoo Qatar CEO Sheikh Ali bin Jabor Al Thani said that signing the agreement with QSL represented an ‘essential step’ towards enhancing the Qatar National Vision 2030 in sports.

“This partnership with QSL comes in line with our continuous efforts to achieve our goals and contribute to the development of sports, especially after the recent achievements in football,” the Ooredoo CEO said.

Last season, QSL renamed the competition Expo Stars League as part of a promotion for the Horticultural Expo 2023 Doha, which ended in March this year.

The new football season kicks off on August 9, with all 12 clubs starting their training on July 1.
