The deal will enable the development of the Team Tours Direct portfolio throughout the region and the expertise of the Swansea-based team will be used to provide young people and athletes across the Middle East with opportunities to participate in professional training camps and tournaments around the world.
It will allow further expansion of the Dubai International Super Cup, a flagship event for the firm which is now recognised as the leading international youth football competition of its kind in the Middle East.
Team Tours Direct chief executive officer Alex O'Neill said: "We are very excited to be expanding our network into the Middle East and establishing our brand as a high-quality provider of sports events, educational and cultural projects in this region.
"We have secured a number of significant contracts over the past twelve months, and have had to recruit a number of additional staff in Wales to meet demand.
"Partnering with professional, like-minded organisations such as our new Middle East partners in creating Team Tours Direct Middle East, will ensure that we capitalise on the opportunities available to us and continue to develop the Team Tours Direct brand on a global scale.
"Although a global organisation, our roots as a company are firmly in Wales and despite pressure from some of our major clients to move to central offices in London, we as an organisation are firmly committed to remaining in Wales and expanding our portfolio in our home nation."
