Bank Muscat’s Green Sports applications till Nov 23

MUSCAT: Bank Muscat has evoked good response from sports teams across the Sultanate to 2018 Green Sports programme. Coinciding with the 35th anniversary of the bank and marking the seventh year of the unique CSR initiative, Bank Muscat will support the development of 15 football fields across the Sultanate in 2018 in line with the ‘Let’s Do More’ vision and partnership to promote Oman as a sporting nation.
Green Sports application forms can be downloaded from the Bank Muscat website www.bankmuscat.com and are also available at the CSR Department in the bank’s head office and branches across the Sultanate. The bank will consider only new applications and the last date for submission of completed forms with supporting documents at the head office is November 23, 2017.
The Green Sports initiative launched by Bank Muscat in 2012 has gained momentum with a total of 78 sports teams across the Sultanate benefiting from the support till date. The scope of Green Sports support for sports teams include greening of football fields with natural or synthetic turf, floodlights or water desalination equipment in areas facing problems of water salinity. Ensuring wider representation, the Green Sports support is extended to develop sustainable sports infrastructure in all parts of the Sultanate.
The criteria for availing the Green Sports support include that sports teams should have been in existence for three years with a minimum of 300 members from the local community. The bank recognises that local teams wield immense influence on neighbourhood communities, especially youth, hence teams with modern infrastructure facilities can help raise sporting heroes for the country.
