(Relaxnews) - Travelers who book a flight on the UAE’s national airline can enter to win a training session with the famous British soccer team.

While Qatar is counting on the French soccer club Paris Saint-Germain to attract tourists — the club has posed for posters promoting the destination and was recently brought to Doha for an exhibition game against Real Madrid — the United Arab Emirates are betting on Manchester City, a club wholly owned by UAE investor Sheikh Mansour.

The team’s official sponsor, Etihad Airways will invite a few lucky passengers and their guests (one each) to meet the team’s staff and players — including Samir Nasri, Yaya Touré and other stars. The lucky winners will join the players and their coaches for a training session, take a behind-the-scenes tour of Etihad Stadium and attend an upcoming game. Transportation and accommodations will be provided for winners who live outside of the UK.

To enter the sweepstakes, soccer fans must purchase an Etihad Airways ticket before February 28 and complete an online form where they enter their ticket number. The winners will be announced in March. More information: www.etihadmcfc.com
