UAE-based Azizi Developments, a leading real estate developer in the Gulf region, said it has signed a strategic sponsorship agreement with Shabab Al Ahli Dubai Football Club.
This deal comes from Azizi's belief that sport is a significant aspect of the UAE society and culture, and it is vital for the private sector to give back to local communities through such initiatives, said the group chairman Mirwais Azizi after signing the deal with Khalifa Saeed Sulaiman, the chairman of the Higher Committee for Merger of Shabab Al Ahli Dubai Football Club.
"The UAE has achieved economic excellence globally and is able to achieve the same on the sports level, he stated.
Azizi said this partnership with Shabab Al Ahli Dubai Football Club is in line with the group's commitment to developing sports and youth in the UAE, especially in a country that has opened its doors to all who aspire to succeed in achieving their dreams.
Sulaiman thanked Azizi Developments for its support of the club and highlighted the pivotal role played by private sector companies in the UAE in supporting and interacting with the local community.
"Sulaiman pointed out that the UAE sports movement is embarking on new horizons based on the directive of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to merge the Arab Youth Sports Club and the Dubai Sports Cultural Club with the Al Ahli Sports Club “into one entity called Shabab Al Ahli Dubai Football Club”
