The purpose of the event, apart from the fun, is for the capital’s corporate community to join together to raise funds for the UAE’s continuing fight against diabetes.
Matches take place every evening at Zayed Sports City, starting at 9.30 pm.
There are ten teams participating, under the patronage of the Title Sponsor, the General Secretariat of the Abu Dhabi Executive Council.
Mariam Al Badr, Deputy Vice President of Corporate Communications for Dolphin Energy, stressed:
“In order for the community to participate fully in our positive economy, we must make sure that we are a healthy nation – I PLAY SPORTS is an excellent community event and offers a great example through its sub-title ‘Start Playing. Prevent Diabetes.’”
Alongside Dolphin, other sponsors include the Health Authority Abu Dhabi (HAAD), Mubadala, Aldar, Imperial College London Diabetes Centre (ICLDC), Injazat and the Emirates Foundation’s Takatof Volunteer Program.
