Since December 2013, GMC – an auto brand strongly associated with youth sports – has served as the Official Transport Vehicle for the Emirates American Football League, a community-focused, non-profit organization geared towards American Football players of all skill levels in the UAE. The partnership – which runs until July 2014 – provides the league with access to a total of five all-new 2014 GMC Sierra Light Duty full-size pickups. Players can therefore fully indulge in the vehicle’s remarkable driving experience.
After all, the all-new 2014 GMC Sierra is the most powerful and advanced pickup in the brand’s 111-year history. The pioneering redesigned model – engineered and built to ‘Command Respect’ – offers best-in-class standards and will provide the ultimate in game logistics for the league and participating teams.
