Doha, 14 July 2016 - QNB, a leading financial institution in the Middle East and Africa, and Trabzonspor, one of Turkey’s most popular football clubs, have announced the signing of an agreement by which QNB has become the main sponsor of the important Turkish team.

The agreement, which was signed in the Raffles Istanbul Hotel by Trabzonspor club president Muharrem Usta and QNB Group Communications General Manager Yousef Darwish, grants the Bank access to jersey sponsorship for 3 years, as well as access to advertising rights, public relations cooperation, social media and digital rights.
