In line with its efforts to support the Kingdom’s sports sector, Batelco is chartering a flight to takeover 210 fans to the opening match of the Asian Cup, taking place in Zayed Sports City Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Saturday 5 January. The initiative follows a meeting between Batelco and Bahrain Football Association and is in line with the Association’s efforts to support the National Football Team.

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.

The Asian Cup, which is one of the most important tournaments in Asia, takes place every four years since 1956, with teams competing for the title of AFC Asian Cup Champions.

Batelco strives to be proactive in supporting the Kingdom’s endeavors and is proud of the national team for qualifying in the 2019 AFC Asian Cup. The company also reaffirms the close cooperation with the Bahrain Football Association to provide the support to the national team as the company believes it is important to have the fans supporting and cheering the team in the tournament and we wish them the best of luck.
