Canada Soccer teams up with Osmow’s Shawarma on new partnership
Canada Soccer announced today a new partnership with Osmow’s Shawarma, which will establish the Canadian restaurant chain as the Official Middle Eastern and Mediterranean Restaurant Partner of Canada Soccer’s National Teams.
The partnership, negotiated by Canadian Soccer Business (CSB), will see Osmow’s support Canada Soccer’s National Teams as they prepare for, and compete on the world stage, including the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022.
“We are excited to team up with Canada Soccer to help build on the success of our National Teams” said Ben Osmow, Osmow’s CEO and Head of Franchising.
“Osmow’s, like Canada Soccer, has expanded and risen in popularity in recent years” said Bernadette Farag, Osmow’s President & CMO “We look forward to supporting our National Teams as they continue this great run in Canadian Soccer.”
“We are proud to partner with Osmow’s and welcome them as the Official Middle Eastern and Mediterranean Restaurant Partner of Canada Soccer” said Dr. Nick Bontis, Canada Soccer President. “With the sport on the continued rise across our country, adding committed partners such as Osmow’s will help contribute to and elevate our growth. It is an incredibly exciting time for soccer, and we look forward to collaborating with Osmow’s to positively impact the Canadian soccer community from coast-to-coast.”
This year marks an exciting chapter for Canada Soccer, with Canada Soccer’s Men’s National Team set to continue its road to the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, while Canada Soccer’s Women’s National Team has their eyes set on qualifying for the FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia / New Zealand 2023 this summer.
Canadian forward Cyle Larin, 27, will serve as Osmow’s brand ambassador. The native of Brampton is the all-time leading goal scorer for Canada Soccer’s Men’s National Team with 24 goals. His 13 goals through FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 Qualifiers in 2021 and 2022 were the most by any player in the Concacaf region.
“I am looking forward to being a brand ambassador for the partnership between Canada Soccer and Osmow’s as our team continues the push toward the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022” said Larin. “Support is critical as our National Team programs aim to reach new heights, and I appreciate the backing of Osmow’s as we continue this journey.”
“Osmow’s is also committed to playing its part in cultivating the existing momentum around Canadian soccer, one of the fastest growing participatory sports in the country” said Sam Osmow, Principal & Founder of Osmow’s.
