Etihad Airways is proud to support a range of sporting and cultural events in the UAE and worldwide. These sponsorships are consistent with Etihad’s values of hospitality, team spirit, and helping bring Abu Dhabi to the world and the world to Abu Dhabi.
Among the highlights of Etihad’s growing portfolio is the title sponsorship of the F1™ Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. The sponsorship, which commenced with the inaugural 2009 F1™ Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, showcases both Etihad and Abu Dhabi to a global TV audience of over 80 million people. Held at Yas Marina Circuit, the race was a sellout in its first year and voted best event of the 2009 season by the FIA.
