Nice to see he’s been signed up by Oman Oil, here’s some more about it.

“Soccer star Ali al Habsi, is the face of Oman Oil. The 23 year-old soccer goalkeeper, who joins English Premiership side Bolton Wanderers next January, signed a three-month contract with Oman Oil for its promotions across the country. The emerging idol and role model for the Omani youth is upbeat about the deal. “I feel this is an excellent opportunity to show young Omanis that they can achieve their dreams.”

While neither party is willing to share the financial details, the Oman Oil fuel stations are already sporting the Habsi image, setting a fine example for the country’s youth. Ali, who currently plays for the Norwegian club SFK Lynn, is the first Omani footballer to play in Europe. Ali believes this ‘partnership’ is a wonderful way of giving something back to Oman by using his public persona to focus attention on an Omani company.” – from here.

It’s only a three month contract tho, but maybe we can see it being increased.
