NBB has long been a pioneer and an investor in the development of our communities. NBB’s support for Bahraini sports and, in particular, this investment in football, will go a long way towards bolstering our efforts to further raise the bar and enhance the BFA Super League. It is also a significant and positive move for the Bahrain’s National Football team and its growth and success. We look forward to working closely with NBB to ensure the benefits of its support are maximised for Bahraini football, our communities and the Bank itself.”

This is an exciting opportunity for the Bank and reflects our deep commitment to and long-standing tradition of providing support for important community based initiatives – including sport. Since the Bank’s establishment 60 years ago, NBB has been a growth partner for Bahrain and we continue this role not only in the provision of banking services, but also in our desire to support Bahrain and Bahraini’s excel across all levels. We are confident that the resources we are investing into the league and with the young and dynamic management team heading the BFA, that we are together taking an important step forward for further progress and excellence in Bahrain sport.”
