Malaysia Airlines and Air Asia have been unveiled as the duel sponsors of Premier League's Queens Park Rangers' shirts.

In a unique move Queens Park Rangers (QPR) have opted for one sponsor for their home shirt, Malaysia Airlines, and one to feature on their two away strips, Air Asia.

It is not surprising that the two firms are sponsors of QPR, having seen Malaysian businessman Tony Fernandes, who has connections at both airlines, take over in August.

"We are extremely positive about building a thriving relationship with both businesses in a bid to broaden our exposure," said QPR chief executive Philip Beard.

Malaysia Airlines' executive director, Mohammed Rashdan Yusof, said he was delighted with the deal.

"Malaysia Airlines is elated to be associated with QPR's ascendancy to the Premier League," he said.
