Ooredoo has supported a special coaching camp by the Paris Saint-Germain Handball team in Doha this week, as the company continues to inspire young people to take part in sports.


The camp, which was held on 29 July at Aspire Dome, gave 20 young people the opportunity to take part in a handball training session led by Paris Saint-Germain coaches.


The team is in Doha for a pre-season training camp and Ooredoo, as a top sponsor of the club, took the opportunity to enable a group of children to meet the Paris Saint-Germain players, so that they could take pictures with them, collect autographs, and see the start of their training camp.

Enthusiasm around the sport has grown significantly since the event, which saw Qatar achieve the runner up position after an incredible performance throughout the contest.
