Abu Dhabi: Etihad Airways Secures Naming Rights of Yas Bay Arena
The development of Yas Island continues – Miral Asset Management recently announced that the national airline Etihad Airways exclusively secured the naming rights for Yas Bay Arena, which is currently under construction. Etihad Arena will be a multi-purpose, indoor entertainment venue for sporting competitions, corporate events, cultural performances and concerts.

„It’s an honour to partner with Miral, […], on this joint venture that will further promote Abu Dhabi and Yas Island as a hub for entertainment, tourism and culture. […] This new arena will bring an abundance of talent to our capital, providing a diverse range of entertainment options for guests visiting our beautiful city, or for those who call the UAE home,“ says Tony Douglas, Group CEO of Etihad Aviation Group. The all new event location will be developed as part of the mixed use complex Yas Bay (cf. EAP news f. 11.
