Bank Muscat to celebrate greening of Al Arabi’s football field in Manah

Muscat: Bank Muscat, the flagship financial services provider in the Sultanate, in step with its ‘Let’s Do More’ vision and partnership to promote Oman as a sporting nation, is all set to celebrate the inauguration of the 23rd football field developed as part of the Green Sports initiative for Al Arabi Sports Team in the wilayat of Manah on Thursday.
Sayyyid Khalid bin Hamad Al Busaidi, Chairman of Oman Football Association, will be the guest of honour at the ceremony to be attended by dignitaries and senior bank officials.
The Green Sports launched by Bank Muscat in 2012 has benefited a total of 63 sports teams till date. Marking the successful fifth year, the bank recently announced 15 new beneficiaries for 2016.
In 2015, the bank widened the scope of Green Sports, offering four options for sports teams to green football fields with natural or synthetic turf, or avail support for floodlights or water desalination equipment to facilitate greening of fields in areas facing problems of water salinity. The move was aimed at providing wider representation to teams to build a sustainable sports infrastructure in all parts of the Sultanate.
The consistent progress of the Green Sports initiative confirms the bank’s commitment to the programme aimed at providing ample opportunities for young Omanis to develop their sporting talents in an ideal environment. The programme is expected to go a long way in developing the sporting skills and talents of Omani youth, thereby promoting the game of football in Oman.
Committed to its ‘Let’s Do More’ vision for the nation and the people, especially youth, Bank Muscat is proud to have led the way in contributing to sustainable development in Oman with various initiatives. As the nation’s leading financial institution, Bank Muscat aims to provide the momentum for youth to excel in all arenas and thereby contribute to the development and progress of Oman.
