Guruda Indonesia Have Announced That They Will Be LFC’s First Official Training Kit Partner
Garuda Indonesia announced yesterday during a press conference that they will make LFC history as the Club’s very first official training kit partner. Following the success of 2012’s partnership as LFC’s official airline partner and the Club’s 2013 preseason tour to Asia and Australia, Garuda Indonesia has decided to take their partnership with the Club to the next level by becoming their training kit partner. The partnership kicks-off on 1 June 2014 for two seasons.
Emirsyah Satar, President & CEO of Garuda Indonesia, commented: “Last year we flew Liverpool FC to their tour destinations. We saw first-hand that the club has a massive fan base; not only in Indonesia but in Thailand and Australia too. The energy and atmosphere of the tour made it clear that LFC is the perfect partner for Garuda Indonesia and will align perfectly with our goal to grow the airline.”
“As a global player and the flag carrier of Indonesia, Garuda Indonesia is committed to bringing the beauty of Indonesia and its rich culture to the world. With the LFC co-branding partnership in place, we are confident Indonesia will increasingly be recognised worldwide, especially by Liverpool fans.” added Mr. Satar.
Billy Hogan, Chief Commercial Officer at Liverpool FC, said: “We are delighted to be extending our partnership with Garuda Indonesia who will become our very first training kit partner. Liverpool FC has a huge following in Indonesia, which makes this award winning airline a perfect partner for us as we work to connect with fans all over the world.”
“It makes us extremely proud that Garuda Indonesia has chosen to partner with Liverpool FC as they increase their coverage and continue their transition from a regional airline to a global carrier. As one of the world’s biggest football clubs, we will be able to help grow their reach in new markets while strengthening our relationship with a partner that we have already shared two fruitful years with, together we are building on success.” Billy Hogan added.
