MOST COMMENTED

[SOCCER BUSINESS] Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates and sponsor of Manchester City, signed a multi-year partnership deal with Major League Soccer to become the official airline partner of MLS in the United States.

Etihad Airways will work with MLS on various grassroots soccer projects, as well as hosting competitions and promotions for flights and holidays with MLS fans.

The chairman of Etihad Airways is Sheikh Hamed bin Zayed al Nahyan. His half brother, Sheikh Hamed bin Zayed al Nahyan, is owner of Manchester City and the new MLS club, New York City FC.
 
“Etihad Airways has a growing portfolio of sports properties that cover the globe," James Hogan, Etihad Airways president and chief executive officer, said in a statement, "and we’re delighted to now add Major League Soccer, a leading international sports brand, to this group.”

    ... rubs eyes ... <p> Etihad's chairman and Manchester City's owner may share family, but they do not share the same name. <p> Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan owns the Abu Dhabi United Group that acquired MCFC.
