Hamad International Airport has welcomed four of FC Bayern Munich’s top footballers for a special fan meet and greet event, as part of its partnership with the club. FC Bayern Munich recently arrived in Qatar for its 2017 Winter Training Camp, presented by Hamad International Airport. The event marks almost a year since the airport was announced as an official platinum partner of the football club.
Hamad International Airport arranged a unique opportunity for fans of the team in Qatar to meet four players – Xabi Alonso, Joshua Kimmich, David Alaba, and Juan Bernat – at the airport on 3 January. 50 lucky fans were selected through online registration, giving them the chance to interact with the players, get autographs and pictures, and take home signed FC Bayern Munich jerseys and other merchandise.
“Twelve months ago, along with our partners from the club, HIA announced that we would be the official platinum partners of FC Bayern Munich. Today, we are honoured to welcome the entire FC Bayern Munich team to Qatar and provide their fans in the country with an exclusive opportunity to meet their idols in person at our airport,” says Engr. Badr Al Meer, Chief Operating Officer at HIA-Qatar. “HIA offers a seamless and luxurious travel experience, while FC Bayern Munich inspires football fans and creates moments of exhilaration. Together, HIA and FC Bayern Munich are a pitch-perfect match.”
At the end of the event, the players chose a lucky winner via a draw. The winner was presented with a pair of tickets to fly to Munich and watch an FC Bayern Munich match at the Allianz Arena with a friend.
