La Liga’s Levante announce shirt sponsorship deal with Saudi Arabia firm Jawwy

VALENCIA: La Liga side Levante have announced a sponsorship deal with Saudi Arabian mobile and telecommunications operator Jawwy.
Under the terms of the deal, the Saudi firm will serve as a shirt sponsor of the Spanish team until the end of the current 2017/18 season. The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The news comes after Levante signed Saudi Arabian player Fahad Al-Muwallad on loan from Saudi Professional League side Al-Ittihad.
Several Saudi Arabia internationals have joined La Liga clubs as part of a strategic partnership between the league and the General Sports Authority of Saudi Arabia (GSA), which was agreed in October to give World Cup-bound Saudi players game time and experience in Europe ahead of the tournament.


The agreement also includes branding opportunities, an academy partnership and a talent ID scouting initiative for young soccer players in the Asian country.
Levante are currently fourth from bottom in the La Liga table, after winning just three of their 24 games so far this season.
Al-Muwallad is also yet to make an appearance for the Valencia-based side.

Iraq has enough oil capacity to meet customer needs: oil minister

  • Thamer Ghadhban also says there are no acute oil shortages for the time being
  • but Iraq would continue to monitor the market to assess the need for additional supply

BAGHDAD: Iraq’s oil minister said on Thursday his country had the capacity to increase its oil production to 6 million barrels per day (bpd) if needed, but it was committed to OPEC-led output cuts and would not take unilateral action to boost supply.
Thamer Ghadhban also said there were no acute oil shortages for the time being, but Iraq would continue to monitor the market to assess the need for additional barrels at the next OPEC meeting.
On Monday, the United States decided not to renew exemptions from sanctions against Iran granted last year to buyers of Iranian oil, taking a tougher line than expected and triggering a rally in oil prices on fears of oil supply shortages.
