  • JOC Signs Partnership Agreement With Toyota


    The Jordan Olympic Committee (JOC) has signed a two-year partnership agreement with Toyota,
    which will help provide support for the development of Jordanian sport and its athletes.

    The signing ceremony, held at the Markazia Toyota Headquarters in Amman, was attended by JOC
    Secretary General Nasser Majali, and Nadim Haddad, who is the General Manager of Markazia Toyota.
    Markazia was established in 1999 as the Toyota distributor in Jordan and its operations include
    Automobile Sales, Service and Parts.

    The partnership will see the launch of an athlete support programme in line with Toyota’s new
    campaign “Start Your Impossible”. The programme will support athletes working towards their goal
    of winning medals at the highest level of international sport. The partnership comes at an important
    time for Jordanian athletes, as they continue to prepare for the biggest event in sport: the Tokyo 2020
    Olympic and Paralympic Games.

    Toyota, which is also part of the International Olympic Committee’s (IOC) Olympic Partner
    Programme, will be the golden sponsor for the JOC for the next two years. Toyota’s partnership with
    the JOC is aligned with its partnership history with the IOC and the company’s belief in Jordanian
    athletes competing at the highest level international sporting events.

    Majali expressed his happiness at the partnership which will provide strong support to the sports
    movement in Jordan: “We are very happy with this partnership as Toyota is one of the most
    outstanding Olympic partners worldwide,” he said. “We appreciate their support for athletes with
    only one year to go until the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020.”

    Majali also pointed out that this partnership is part of Jordan’s National Strategy for Sport, introduced
    in 2017, which aims to help athletes reach the highest level.
    Haddad said: “It is an honour to be working with the JOC at an exciting time for sport, especially with
    the next Olympic Games just around the corner.”

    Toyota has also signed sponsorship agreement with a number of athletes from Jordan’s Olympic
    Preparation Centre. Most athlete agreements were signed between January and March 2019,
    providing cars for some athletes, and financial support for others, in the build up to Tokyo 2020.
