Legendary Man Utd footballer Andrew Cole launches CBQ deal
Legendary Manchester United football player Andrew Cole, along with Manchester United executives and Commercial Bank Chief Executive Officer Mr Abdulla Al Raisi, today announced a new five-year exclusive partnership with Manchester United, the world’s most famous sporting brand, to offer an exclusive range of financial services products.
As Qatar readies itself for hosting the 2022 World Cup, Commercial Bank will offer to existing and new customers a range of Manchester United branded current accounts, savings accounts, debit cards and credit cards.
“As Qatar prepares to host the World Cup in 2022, what better way is there to support our country’s vision than to bring to our customers financial products that will enable them to get closer to the world’s best football team, Manchester United, providing them with priceless experiences, and opportunities to get involved in football-related activities and promotions,” Commercial Bank’s Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Abdulla Al Raisi said.
Financial products include a Current or Savings account with a debit card and two types of Manchester United credit cards, branded with the Manchester United logo. Premier cardholders will have access to the Commercial Bank rewards program, which allows them to transfer Commercial Bank Reward Points to FlyMiles or Accolades.
Access to over 450 airport lounges, travel insurance and exclusive merchant offers are also parts of the card offering.
In addition, every customer who applies for a Manchester United credit card will enter a prize draw to win a top prize: an all-expenses-paid trip to watch Manchester United train and play at Old Trafford. Runners up will win tickets to games or signed shirts.
The first 200 new Manchester United credit card customers will be invited to attend a live screening of a Manchester United game at a fan event in Doha with a prominent team legend, giving fans an opportunity to get up close and personal.
There will also be a host of activities at the Commercial Bank branches where credit card applicants can win Manchester United goodies, such as photographic prints and signed pennants.
Finally, Commercial Bank will also be running annual Manchester United Football Schools, run by the Manchester United Football Schools coaching team, which will allow children (aged 12 and above) to undergo extensive football coaching.
