Burgan Bank recently offered its platinum sponsorship for the final match of the Kuwait Amir Cup, which was held under the patronage of His Highness the Amir, Sheikh Nawaf Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, and in presence of His Highness the Crown Prince Sheikh Mishal Al-Ahmed Al-Sabah. The match, which drew a huge crowd of sports fans, took place between Kuwait Club and Al-Qadisiyah Club at Jaber Al-Ahmad International Stadium. It was attended by several dignitaries, as well as representatives of Burgan Bank’s executive management, headed by Mr. Majed Essa Al Ajeel, Chairman of Burgan Bank Group and Mr. Masoud M.J. Hayat, Vice Chairman and Group CEO of Burgan Bank Group.
The sponsorship which aimed at supporting the development of Kuwait’s sports sector fell under the Bank's comprehensive social responsibility program. This 59th edition of the Amir Cup was organized by the Kuwait Football Association (KFA) and had kicked off its 2020/2021 season this past September, with the participation of 15 football clubs from across Kuwait.
Burgan Bank is keen to help nurture the sports culture in Kuwait in every way, actively supporting the sector and developing it, to allow Kuwaiti athletes to compete both locally and abroad. This sponsorship confirms the leadership role that Burgan Bank plays, not only within the banking sector, but also in the field of social responsibility; in order to achieve sustainable community development and empower young Kuwaiti talent. The Bank also aims to motivate all segments of Kuwaiti society to embrace a sports culture.
It is worth noting that Burgan Bank has always focused on supporting important local sporting events, including its sponsorship of the Kuwait Equestrian Federation’s (KEF) season, Spark Marathon, the RunQ8 charity race and the KBA Night Run. The Bank has also offered its support to various prominent Kuwaiti athletes, including its ongoing sponsorship of international wheelchair fencing champion Tareq Al-Qallaf.
