Batelco, in line with its commitment to the youth of Bahrain, has announced its support of the 6th Khalid Bin Hamad Youth Centres Futsal League and the 3rd Khalid bin Hamad People with Disabilities Futsal League, which is taking place at Khalifa Sports City until 9th August.
Batelco is the exclusive telecom partner for the event, which is taking place under the patronage of His Highness Shaikh Khalid bin Hamad Al Khalifa, First Deputy Chairman of the Supreme Council for Youth and Sports and President of Bahrain Athletic Association. The event is organised by the Ministry of Youth and Sports Affairs (GOYS) under the guidance of His Excellency Mr. Hisham bin Mohammed Al Jowder, Minister of Youth Affairs and Sports.
Several Youth Centres and Clubs around the Kingdom of Bahrain are participating in the league including eight girls’ teams. Over 80 teams will participate in knock out rounds to qualify for the final round of 16 to be followed by quarter-finals, semi-finals and finals, with the losing teams competing in matches for 3rd and 4th place.
The Khalid bin Hamad Youth Centres Futsal Leagues aim to deepen the bonds among Bahraini youths. The Leagues encourage the role of youth centres and clubs that are recognised as the incubators of the youth in the Kingdom, and play a great role in supporting youth activities with a major emphasis on sports.
Batelco is very pleased to support the annual Futsal leagues as the events bring youths from all over the Kingdom together and encourage friendly competition which is fun for the participants and spectators.
