Batelco Supports Annual Khalid Bin Hamad Futsal Leagues for Youth Centres and the Disabled

Batelco, in line with its commitment to the youth of Bahrain, has announced its support of the 5th Khalid Bin Hamad Youth Centres Futsal League and the 2nd Khalid bin Hamad People with Disabilities Futsal League, which will take place from July 24th to August 23rd at Khalifa Sports City, under the slogan of ‘Meeting of Generations’.

Batelco will be 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.

In the Youth Centres League, the participating Centres will be divided into eight groups who will play in knock-out rounds with the top two teams in each group qualifying for the Round of 16. Disabled competitors will be given a greater chance in the Disabled Futsal League this year with eight teams being divided into two groups to play in the quarter-finals, then semi-finals and finals with losing teams competing in matches for third and fourth place. An addition to the fun this year is a special tournament for girls with six teams representing a number of Bahrain’s Youth Centres.

The Khalid bin Hamad Youth Centres Futsal Leagues aim to deepen the bonds among Bahraini youths. The Leagues, which encourage the role of youth centres that are recognised as the incubators of the youth in the Kingdom, play a great role in supporting youth activities with a major emphasis on sports.

Batelco Bahrain CEO Eng. Muna Al Hashemi said that Batelco was very pleased to support the annual Futsal leagues as the events brings youths from all over the Kingdom together and encourages friendly competition which is fun for the participants and spectators.

“We praise such initiatives which are in line with Batelco’s commitment to the youth of Bahrain. Developing bonds between young people to build cooperation through their interest in sports is very worthwhile,” said Mrs. Al Hashemi.

Batelco Senior Manager Corporate Affairs Osama Al Saad added that the football tournament promises to be very rewarding and entertaining for everyone involved. “Besides building bridges of brotherhood across the Kingdom, the participants are provided with the opportunity to hone their football skills,” he added.
