Turkish Airlines is kicking off the new MLS season by signing on as the official airline partner of Toronto FC for 2019.
This is the airline’s first sponsorship deal with a Canadian major league sports team.
As the flag carrier of Turkey, Turkish Airlines sees the partnership as an ideal opportunity to generate greater brand awareness to all Canadians.
Turkish Airlines presently flies to 306 destinations worldwide. The new soccer season kicks off as Turkish Airlines prepares to move into its new, state-of-the-art home base in Istanbul. Istanbul Airport is set to become one of the largest airports in the world.
“We are proud to partner with a world-class brand like Turkish Airlines,” said Jeff Deline, chief revenue officer at MLSE. “This partnership exemplifies the international reach that Major League Soccer provides our fans from around the world and will help connect them to our team here in Toronto.”
