QAFCO renew sponsorship of Family Zone at Commercial Bank Qatar Masters

Qatar Fertiliser Company (QAFCO) has extended its partnership with the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters, Qatar’s flagship golf event. QAFCO will again sponsor the popular Family Zone during the four-day European Tour event, which will be held at Doha Golf Club from Wednesday to Saturday.

QAFCO’s continued sponsorship of the Family Zone on the lawn beside the clubhouse strengthens the event’s family offerings, encouraging kids of all ages to have fun trying out golf and other sports.

Hamed Al Marwani, Chief Administration Officer, QAFCO, and Abdulla Raisi, CEO of Commercial Bank, signed the new agreement as QAFCO extended its first venture into golf sponsorship.

“We are delighted to be involved with this event,” Al Marwani said. “We have strong roots in Qatar and a long history of sporting sponsorship here, so it is a sincere partnership between us and one of the Middle East’s most prestigious sporting events. This is a tournament not only for golf enthusiasts but one for families, and our involvement in the Family Zone aims to expand that reputation even further.”

Abdulla Saleh Al Raisi, CEO of Commercial Bank, added: “With QAFCO supporting the Family Zone at Commercial Bank Qatar Masters, it really is an event for the whole family and reaches out to a wide audience locally, regionally and globally. We look forward to working together further to continue to raise Qatar’s profile on the world’s sporting stage. These are exciting times for both of us.”

QAFCO integrates Corporate Social Responsibility into all aspects of its operations and is keen to actively strengthen the relationship between the company and the community. QAFCO assumes significant roles in sponsoring social, cultural, environmental, educational and sporting events held in Qatar.
