“Champions of Tomorrow” Enjoy Chance to Play Match with French League Leaders and Hundreds of Fans Get Tickets for Real Madrid Showdown Doha, Qatar As a proud sponsor of Paris Saint-Germain, Ooredoo took full advantage of the team’s recent visit to Qatar to offer an incredible range of experiences for its customers, particularly young people who want to get more involved in sport. Paris Saint-Germain was visiting Doha for its Qatar Winter Tour, to prepare for the second half of the season and to take part in a friendly match with Real Madrid – the sixth meeting between the two sides. Ooredoo enabled fans from across its footprint to travel to Doha to enjoy the match, with some 270 fans being flown from Algeria to Qatar following a special competition; plus more than 25 fans from Oman; 24 people from Tunisia; and five from Indonesia being hosted at the match. In addition, 40 lucky Qatar-based supporters attended the match following an Instagram competition. Ooredoo also enabled a number of media delegations to cover the match, including 20 press representatives from Algeria and four journalists and a blogger from Indonesia. As part of its commitment to sport, Ooredoo organised a series of special community activities in Qatar with the team, including a once-in-a-lifetime school visit. Members of the Paris Saint-Germain team made a surprise appearance at Omar Ibn El Khatab School in Doha to take to the field to play soccer with the students. Ooredoo also created the opportunity for fans to watch the Paris Saint-Germain team at their training camp, and kept customers up-to-date with a full range of updates on its social media sites. In addition, Ooredoo organised a special Fan Zone at the Paris Saint-Germain vs Real Madrid match, with a range of activities for visitors. Dr. Nasser Marafih, Group CEO, Ooredoo, said: “Ooredoo has a strong partnership with Paris Saint-Germain, which is focused upon developing young people and helping them reach their full potential. We are working on a series of initiatives across our footprint to encourage more young people to play soccer, including community coaching sessions. During their visit to Qatar, we were pleased that the team could meet some young people who want to become ‘Champions of Tomorrow’ and inspire them to work for their dreams.” For the participating companies from across Ooredoo’s footprint, the visit was an incredible opportunity to use the relationship with Paris Saint-Germain to get closer to their customers, and enable customers to see world-class football in Qatar, future host of the FIFA World Cup. Ooredoo is a leading sponsor of the 2012/2013 Ligue 1 Champion Paris Saint-Germain, following an agreement signed earlier in 2013 that will run through to 2018. As part of the sponsorship, the Ooredoo logo appears on the back of Paris Saint-Germain team shirts, on the sleeve of training kits, and at the team’s Parc des Princes Stadium on the pitch-side LED system. Ooredoo is a major supporter of sport in Qatar, across the Middle East and around the world. Recently, it became the official partner of the Myanmar Football Federation (MFF) in Myanmar, its newest market. The sponsorship includes all national men's and women's teams, including the national youth teams and Ooredoo is working to enhance the partnership with a full grassroots programme developing talented young footballers into the stars of the future. Ooredoo is also the official sponsor of the Algerian national team, and has been engaged with the team’s efforts since 2010. It is providing full support for the team in their campaign for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, following their successful qualification.
