In line with the company’s efforts to support the Kingdom’s sports sector and its desire to be present at important sports forums representing the Kingdom of Bahrain, Batelco chartered a plane to transport fans to the opening match of the 2019 AFC Asian Cup. The opening match between the Bahraini National Team and the UAE National Team took place on Saturday 5th of January in Zayed Sports Stadium in Abu Dhabi.
Batelco’s chairman, Shaikh Abdulla bin Khalifa Al Khalifa, was keen to attend the match and travel on the plane that transported the fans, to provide support for the team and confirm Batelco’s commitment to supporting the national team in such an important game at national level.
The atmosphere of the trip was characterized by enthusiasm and high spirits. The well-known Bahraini singer Flipperachi joined the fans onboard and shared with them his latest song produced by Batelco for the occasion of the National Team’s participation at the Asian Cup.
Batelco, as a National Company, has continuously supported a wide range of youth and sports events in line with its CSR strategy. Keen on championing the national team and supporting sporting initiatives on a local, regional and international level, Batelco’s initiative comes in line with the company’s eagerness to strengthen its community partnership as part of its national duty.
As the national telecommunications company in the Kingdom, Batelco seeks to be at the forefront of companies and institutions that support the Kingdom’s endeavors in all locations and fields. The close cooperation between the Bahrain Football Federation and Batelco reflects the national spirit in such forums.
