Etihad Airways is set to become the principal sponsor of Girona FC, starting from the upcoming season. This strategic partnership, established for a period of three years, emphasizes Etihad’s deep commitment to the Spanish market and its dedication to enhancing connectivity and cultural exchange.

Over the past year, Etihad has significantly expanded its operations in Spain, increasing its flights by nearly 50%. In 2024, the airline will operate 10 weekly flights to Madrid and Barcelona. Moreover, the introduction of seasonal flights to Málaga, operating three times a week starting from June, will further boost travel and tourism between the regions.

This sponsorship signifies a shared commitment to excellence, community, and the power of connecting people and cultures. Girona FC, with its rich history and passionate fan base, aligns perfectly with Etihad’s values of empowering ambition and aspiring to the highest standards in all endeavors.

“We are thrilled to collaborate with Girona FC, a club that resonates with our brand values and aspirations,” said Arik De, Chief Commercial Officer of Etihad Airways. “This sponsorship demonstrates our dedication to the Spanish and Catalan markets and our goal to strengthen the bonds between the UAE and Spain. Etihad Airways looks forward to a successful partnership with Girona and bringing our worlds closer through football.”

Delfí Geli, President of Girona FC, added, “We are incredibly proud to welcome Etihad Airways as our main sponsor. Etihad's global perspective and commitment to excellence mirror our own aspirations on and off the field.”

The collaboration between Etihad Airways and Girona FC is more than a sponsorship; it is a mutual commitment to foster community spirit and bring people together, enhancing the fan experience and providing more opportunities for engagement in sports at a global level.

As the main sponsor, Etihad Airways will have a prominent presence on the team's kits from the next season and also at the stadium. The partnership will also offer exciting new opportunities for fans, including unique promotions and special events designed to celebrate this union of cultures and passions.

With this new association, travelers from Abu Dhabi flying to Barcelona will have an even greater incentive to explore the diverse regions of Catalonia. Girona, with its picturesque landscapes, expanding businesses, and rich cultural heritage, offers an endless array of experiences. Visitors can enjoy exceptional cuisine and a variety of cultural festivals, making it an ideal destination for both leisure and business. Additionally, they will have the opportunity to cheer on Girona FC at the Estadi Montilivi, adding an exciting sports experience to their journey.
