Under the agreement, inked by Mr. Swar Ahmed on behalf of Asiacell CEO Dr. Diar Ahmed, Asiacell will exclusively sponsor all the Committee’s activities and the Iraqi Football Association’s national teams.
This sponsorship comes to affirm Asiacell’s continued effort in contributing to the progress of the Iraqi society, and giving back to the local community in various fields. It also highlights the company’s commitment to developing Iraqi sports in general and football in particular as worldwide popular game.
“We believe that sports can serve as an instrumental tool in social development. This sponsorship showcases our true sense of belonging, as an Iraqi company, to our society and reflects our sincere interest in supporting various sporting, cultural and artistic initiatives that bring true value to our country,” said Dr. Ahmed. He added that by partnering with the National Olympic Committee and the Iraqi Football Association, Asiacell would be better positioned to actively support Iraq’s talented national football team.
In turn, Mr. Raid Hamudy, Head of Iraqi Olympic Committee, and Mr. Najh Hmud, Assistance Head of Iraqi Football Association, expressed pleasure at signing the sponsorship agreement with Asiacell, and commended the vital role that the company plays in upgrading the Iraqi telecoms market. They also highlighted the positive impact that Asiacell’s CSR programs and initiatives have had on the local community, and lauded its contributions towards rebuilding Iraq.
