FEDEX EXPRESS RENEWS AS AN OFFICIAL SPONSOR OF THE UEFA EUROPA LEAGUE
ANDREA CARUSONE-MEIER — SEP 13, 2018
UEFA and FedEx Express have signed a new three-year agreement to become an Official Sponsor of the UEFA Europa League. Their sponsorship will continue into the 2018/19 season and run through to the UEFA Europa League Final in 2021.
Since FedEx joined the UEFA Europa League sponsor family in 2015, the two organisations have been working together to create unique experiences for the fans. This ranges from the FedEx Performance Zone on UEFA.com – providing insights and data on the UEFA Europa League players; to the Player Mascot programme on matchdays, giving thousands of children a money-can’t-buy experience; to building pitches across the world as a part of the global FedEx Cares CSR initiative with support from UEFA Foundation for Children. The next three UEFA Europa League seasons will allow these programmes to develop and grow to give even more to fans of the competition.
“We are very pleased to renew the UEFA Europa League partnership with FedEx Express and look forward to continuing our strong relationship. Our aim is to further build upon our common objectives, grow the competition and cement this sponsorship further. We have enjoyed an excellent first three years with FedEx Express and look forward to an ongoing good cooperation in the years to come,” Kerstin Lutz, TEAM’s Managing Director Sponsorship, commented.
FedEx Express becomes the sixth Official Partner of the UEFA Europa League for the 2018-21 commercial cycle, following the renewals of Amstel, Hankook Tires and Enterprise-Rent-A-Car, while Kia Motors and Molten have also become an Official Sponsor and Official Matchball Supplier to the competition respectively.
