Traveloka Becomes Official Media & Broadcast Sponsor of FMA for 2018 FIFA World Cup Program in Indonesia

JAKARTA, 1 March 2018 – Traveloka, a leading technology company that provides an online travel booking platform for domestic and international destinations, announces its participation in the 2018 FIFA World Cup, the world’s biggest soccer event which takes place in Russia from 14 June – 15 July, as Media & Broadcast Sponsor of FMA for 2018 FIFA World Cup Program in Indonesia. Traveloka’s participation as the first and only Indonesian technology company that becomes official partner of the 21st FIFA World Cup is attributed to its cooperation with 2018 FIFA World Cup’s official territorial licensing in Indonesia, Futball Momentum Asia (FMA).
