Mobilk - Under the patronage of his Highness Sayyid Haitham bin Tariq Al-Said, Minister of Heritage and Culture, the Ministry of Sports Affairs and Oman Football Association held a ceremony to honour the Oman National Football Team after winning the 23rd Gulf Cup for the second time in their history. During the event that was attended by a range of distinguished guests from Excellencies to Heads of Sports, Ooredoo was honoured for its efforts done to support the National football team.
During the event, all recipients were awarded fantastic products and services from Ooredoo including, smartphone headsets, one year Shahry plans and a one year home broadband packages for the players.
“Ooredoo congratulates the Oman National Team and their internal staff for their outstanding performance and hard work to make this achievement possible. This is truly something that the whole country is proud of and we are thrilled to support such a talented and dedicated team”, said Abdul Razzaq Bin Abdul Wahid Al-Balushi, Chief Financial Officer at Ooredoo. “Supporting sporting events is part of our commitment to promoting healthy lifestyles and creating awareness among all members of our society. We believe in the importance of participating in physical activities in order to achieve good health and overall personal development”.
One of the many community-focused initiatives Ooredoo has undertaken included sending a charter flight full of Omani football fans to Kuwait to attend and support their team in the finale. The company also provided the lucky customers with free unlimited roaming data, to share the moment with friends and family back home.
The 23rd Arabian Gulf Cup was held in Kuwait from 22 December to 5 January. The dramatic final was played out in front of a packed stadium, which saw Oman deadlocked 0-0 with UAE, which was then forced into extra-time and then a penalty shootout, resulting in a 5-4 win.
To date, Ooredoo has partnered with local business, sports clubs and gymnasiums to drive individual and collective growth by raising awareness of health and wellbeing, through a number of events and initiatives. These include the much awaited Summer Sports programme and supporting the Davis Cup Asia/Oceania Group IV.
