Sponsorship for Abu Dhabi Triathlon Team is cut and team is dropped.
After a very solid four year run the Abu Dhabi Triathlon Team announced today that this sponsorship effort has come to an end. The team posted this on their website:
“The team, which was founded by Swen Sundberg, Dr. Werner Leitner and Faris Al-Sultan in 2009, can look back on many great athletic successes such as an Ironman European Championship title, an ITU World Championship title and multiple Ironman and Ironman 70.3 victories. Plus, the idea of a training camp in Abu Dhabi was handled well because of the experience with the local culture. All that though does not appear to fit the strategy nor the budget of the the Tourism Bureau that is currently restructuring. In any case, the negotiations between the Bureau and the Team went on for several months, and came to a not surprising negative experience,” said a press release of the team.
