German soccer club and Champions League semifinalist Borussia Dortmund has a new partnership with Turkish Airlines, reports the Associated Press. The value of the deal was not revealed, but it will be over several years, and advertising cooperation will begin on the May 4 match against Bayern Munich.

Dortmund won the Bundesliga title for the 2010-11 and 2011-12 seasons; Bayern Munich clinched this season's championship earlier in April, its 23rd national title.

From the Associated Press report:

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).
