Boeing Named Supporter of Dubai World Cup

The Dubai World Cup Committee announced on Tuesday that the Boeing Company will be an official supporter of the 2004 Dubai World Cup (UAE-I).

Emirates, the Dubai-based international airline, is the title sponsor of the $6 million Dubai World Cup, which will take place at Nad Al Sheba Racecourse on March 27. This year's Dubai World Cup will be the highlight of the inaugural Dubai International Racing Carnival, a nine-week extravaganza of top class horse racing and social events.

Ali Saeed Bilhab, chairman of the Dubai World Cup Committee said, "It is with great pleasure that we welcome the Boeing Company as an official supporter of the Dubai World Cup. It seems fitting that the world's richest race is being supported by the world's leading aerospace company and we look forward to a long and successful partnership."
