THY takes no chances – signs for both Champions League finalists

No shortage of ambition at Turkish Airlines. Not resting on its laurels after striking a three-year sponsorship deal with European Champions League winners Barcelona, its reported that Turkish Airlines is also signing up as a new official sponsor for last year’s beaten finalist Manchester United. The BBC is reporting that under the deal THY will replace another airline, AirAsia, as the team’s official carrier (ironically AirAsia boss Tony Fernandes was separately in the running to takeover another premier league team, struggling West Ham United, but ultimately lost out - if you consider not buying a hugely in debt football club missing out). While the deal is still be formally announced, it appears a further sign of THY’s intentions to be a global name, but might leave its CEO Temel Kotil (pictured here with the Barcelona scarf) with a tricky balancing act should there be a repeat of the final this year.
