Al Jazeera recognizes the crucial role frontline workers play in Abu Dhabi, distributing exclusive, limited edition kits to a group of lucky beneficiaries alongside its partners Healthpoint, ADNOC and Al Ain Farms.
The kits were worn in the opening matches of the 2020/21 season, as part of the innovative partnership of global sports manufacturer PUMA. The limited-edition design was showcased in three Arabian Gulf Cup matches against Ittihad Kalba, Al Nasr and Al Dhafra before the club’s main kit was introduced.
Abu Dhabi Pride is working with its main club partners to select the lucky recipients of these unique sports memorabilia. This is the club’s latest Covid-related community initiative, which currently leads the league with just three matches to play.
Speaking about the initiative, Al Jazeera Group CEO, Mr. Ali Youssif Al Hammadi, said: “The Al Jazeera club knows all too well its role in the Abu Dhabi community and how everyone is grateful for the tireless courage of the frontline workers in our city. .
“We are the pride of Abu Dhabi for a reason, a club at the heart of a wonderful community with a unique bond between our fans, our players and coaches and of course, our club partners.
“Our partnership with PUMA has allowed us to kick off the season with a limited edition kit and we are delighted to donate these unique pieces of sports memorabilia to those in town who deserve them the most.”
The club works with its major partners to secure the most worthy of recipients. The partners involved – Healthpoint, ADNOC and Al Ain Farms – all work closely with the club throughout the season on a wide variety of community initiatives.
The club’s top scorer Ali Mabkhout said: “This is such a brilliant initiative from the club and I cannot think of better recipients for the limited edition PUMA kits.
“We will forever be indebted for the courage of those who work on the front lines. I am proud that the club has chosen to distribute these limited edition kits to these heroes and provide them with a token of our appreciation for all they do. “
The club recently launched a vaccination campaign in collaboration with its main partner Mubadala as part of the efforts of the Ministry of Health and the Abu Dhabi Public Health Center to contain the spread of Covid-19. Players and staff received their dose of vaccines at Healthpoint, one of Mubadala Health’s integrated networks of world-class healthcare providers.
With three matches to go in the UAE Pro League season, Al Jazeera tops the table, one point ahead of Bani Yas in second and seven ahead of third Shabab Al Ahli Dubai Club.
