Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, has renewed its sponsorship of the Sport Australia Hall of Fame until June 2015.

The three-year extension of the sponsorship, which commenced in July 2009, will see the airline continue to support Sport Australia Hall of Fame’s work to promote outstanding sporting achievement in Australia and inspire future generations.

As the major sponsor of the Sport Australia Hall of Fame, Etihad Airways will also be the presenting partner of the organisation’s Annual Induction and Awards Dinner.

The airline will also provide air travel to young athletes under the age of 21, who have qualified for the Sport Australia Hall of Fame Scholarship Mentoring Program, in order to help further overseas training and competition experience.
