Concacaf, the governing body for soccer in North and Central America and the Caribbean, has signed a multi-year sponsorship deal with Qatar Airways.

The agreement sees the brand serve as the official airline partner of the 2021 Concacaf Gold Cup, which began in Miami, Florida on 2 July, and will culminate with the final in Las Vegas, Nevada on 1 August.

Qatar’s national soccer team is a guest for the competition.

Qatar Airways will also be the presenting sponsor of the next edition of the Concacaf Nations League, which is scheduled for 2022-23.

The company already has a strong presence in soccer, notably as a top-tier 'Fifa Partner' in a deal that runs up to and includes the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, and the official airline of the ongoing Uefa Euro 2020, which reaches a climax next weekend.

It is also a partner of various top clubs, including Paris Saint-Germain, AS Roma, Bayern Munich and Boca Juniors.
