The office, located in the Dubai International Financial Center, will serve as a base for the club’s operations in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, where it boasts a strong fanbase and a number of existing commercial partners, including long-standing principal partner Emirates.
Last August CFI also agreed a new shirt sponsorship deal with Sheffield United, the recently promoted English Premier League soccer club.
