Liverpool Football Club have announced a new multi-year deal with the national flag carrier of Indonesia, Garuda Indonesia.
Under terms of the agreement Garuda will serve as Liverpool's 'global official airline' for the next three years.
Financial terms of Garuda's commitment to Liverpool were not released, however, Liverpool managing director Ian Ayre did reveal that as a result of the deal the Premier League club hoped to stage next year's pre-season tour in Indonesia.
"This is a fantastic partnership for both parties," said Ian Ayre. "Liverpool Football Club has a huge international following and we are looking forward to working with Garuda Indonesia across many markets in order to capitalise on their rapid growth. It is an honour for us to be associated with a brand that has become a leading player in global aviation, and in particular, a brand that has its base in a region where we enjoy such a passionate fan base. Indonesia is an ambitious country with a rapidly growing economy which the club has great affiliation with and where we hope to hold next year’s pre-Season tour.”
Garuda Indonesia president and chief executive Emirsyah Satar added, "As part of our continued efforts to build Garuda Indonesia into one of the global players in airline industry, this partnership provides us with great exposure in international markets. The global scale that LFC brings will support the initiative to increase exposure while LFC’s huge fan base all over the world enables us to introduce Garuda Indonesia and Indonesia in general to the world.”http://www.sportspromedia.com/news/liverpool_sign_surprise_three_year_contract_with_garuda/?utm_source=Feeds&utm_campaign=soccer&utm_medium=rss
