Dortmund in partnership deal with Turkish Airlines

Champions League semifinalist Borussia Dortmund has announced a new partnership deal with Turkish Airlines.

Dortmund didn't specify the value of the several-year deal on Thursday. It says advertising cooperation will start at its May 4 home match against Bayern Munich, the recently crowned Bundesliga champion after Dortmund won the title for the past two seasons.

The deal will involve the airline flying the team to matches abroad in the Champions League.

It comes after Bayern Munich secured the services next season of Dortmund midfielder Mario Goetze, activating a release clause in the Germany international's contract worth 37 million euros ($48 million).
