FC Barcelona vice president Javier Faus stressed the importance of the GCC region to the Spanish club after announcing a three-year partnership with United Arab Bank at Mirdif City Centre on Sunday.

The agreement with the Sharjah-based bank — who recently posted record half-year profits of Dh260 million, representing a 35 per cent year-on-year increase — follows similar Barcelona Middle East tie-ups with telecommunications firm Etisalat and Qatar Airways.

As an official partner of Barcelona, United Arab Bank will create a range of customised Barca-themed products and offers, starting with a prize draw for 14 winners to watch the team play at the Nou Camp.

Faus said: “This region is very important for us and we have very strong relations throughout the GCC. We look to continue to be very strong in this country.
