(Gulf Times (Qatar) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Alfardan Group will organise an internal Sports Day on February 11 at Al Ahli Sports Club to mark Qatar's celebration of National Sport Day and in support of the government's vision to establish the country as a premier global sports hub.
Now in its third year, the Alfardan Sports Day is expected to draw hundreds of sports enthusiasts from Alfardan Group of Companies as athletes from different departments will participate in various sporting events, including football, basketball, volleyball, cricket, badminton, swimming and tennis.
While supporting the National Sport Day, the Alfardan Sports Day initiative will also reinforce a feeling of camaraderie among all employees, which is a key fundamental strategy of the company's corporate social responsibility.
The Group's management and employees have been actively involved in preparations to ensure the success of the event, which strongly reaffirms the commitment of Alfardan Group towards the initiative in line with the vision of HH the Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani to create a healthier society for people of all ages, genders and nationalities in Qatar by enhancing sports in our daily lives.
Ali Alfardan, vice-chairman of Alfardan Group, said: "Qatar is one of the few countries to have a day dedicated solely for sports activities and we strongly uphold the vision of HH Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani, Emir of Qatar, by organising a dedicated Sports Day for Alfardan employees during National Sport Day on February 11, where we organise various sporting events during the day for our employees to showcase their talents. We have also translated our commitment to enhancing sports in the community within our organisation because now, with the visionary sports initiative of our leaders in which the entire country celebrates sports, we are able to be part of this initiative with our families and employees alike. Our employees at Alfardan Group of Companies have taken this initiative very seriously by practising during the year and participating in various activities against different teams within the company to obtain a place in the final matches on Sports Day." Omar Alfardan, president and CEO of Alfardan Group, said: "Alfardan Group firmly supports the initiative of HH Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani, Emir of Qatar, to have a National Sport Day.

We are proud to say that the National Sport Day initiative has been deeply embedded in our yearly internal CSR initiatives as a year-round activity through the different levels of the company, thus generating continuous excitement and enthusiasm for not only our employees but also their families. This sporting initiative has become a medium within all the businesses of Alfardan Group, promoting positive attributes such as co-operation through 'team spirit', dedication through the 'will to win' and excellence through the 'will to excel'."
