ADQ, an Abu Dhabi-based investment and holding company, celebrated its title sponsorship of UAE Team ADQ, the first official women’s cycling team in the region, ahead of International Women’s Day.
To mark the partnership, UAE Team ADQ hosted a community event for cycling enthusiasts and aspiring female athletes to meet and engage with the women’s cycling team.
The partnership complements ADQ’s three-year sponsorships of UAE Team Emirates, the UAE’s World Tour Professional Cycling Team, and the UAE Football Association, including the UAE’s national football teams, the President’s Cup and the UAE First and Second Division Leagues, announced last year.
UAE Team ADQ is the latest member of the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) Women’s World Tour, and it joins the men’s UAE Team Emirates in representing the UAE on a global stage. The female team features talented professionals, including Safeya Al Sayegh as well as former title champions and Olympians from all over the world. Last year, UCI named Abu Dhabi as the first “City of Bicycles” in Asia in recognition of the UAE capital’s growing role as a bike-friendly city.
