Ooredoo has announced it is the Official Telecommunications Sponsor of the Qatar University League. The announcement was made at the official draw of the 2017 University League yesterday in Qatar Foundation Recreation Centre.
This year, 11 teams will battle it out to win the title, and universities involved include Georgetown University School of Foreign Service in Qatar, Carnegie Mellon University in Qatar, Northwestern University in Qatar, Qatar University, Texas A&M University at Qatar, and more. This is the latest in a line of footballing sponsorships for Ooredoo in 2017, as the company continues to support its agreement with QFA until 2018.
As part of this agreement, which was signed last year, Ooredoo supports QFA’s top event; The Emir Cup, and the Qatar National ‘A’ Team, and Qatar National Olympic Team.
Talking about the draw, Manar Khalifa Al Muraikhi (pictured), Ooredoo Director of PR and Corporate Communications, said: “Ooredoo supports all levels of football in Qatar, from local leagues, grassroots players and the youth of Qatar, as we prepare to host the biggest footballing event in the world. We wish all participants in the University League the best of luck and encourage everyone to go along and cheer on the teams.”
Hilal Al Mohannadi, Chairman of the Sub-Leagues Committee at QFA commented: “We thank Ooredoo for their ongoing support and commitment towards the development of the University League and recognise their tremendous efforts in supporting QFA’s objective which is to nurture a football culture in Qatar, specifically among the young people in universities. We are excited to organise the University League for the fifth consecutive season and wish all the 11 contesting teams the best of luck.”
Ooredoo is offering financial support for the tournament, and will be encouraging its customers to watch and attend upcoming games via its social media network.
This is the latest in a series of Ooredoo promotions and activities built around sporting events in 2017, including the Qatar ExxonMobil Open 2017, and the Ooredoo Marathon.
