BMW official automotive sponsor of Al Roudhan Indoor football tourney Ali Alghanim & Sons Automotive joins fans for must-see int’l football experience

KUWAIT CITY, July 22: Ali Alghanim & Sons Automotive has come together with football fans from all over Kuwait to be a part of the 34th Abdullah Al Roudhan Indoor Football Championship — an annual event dedicated to the late Abdullah Mishari Al Roudhan and one of the most popular football tournaments in Kuwait.
The event is currently taking place at the Martyr Sheikh Fahad Al Ahmad Al Sabah Club in Da’iya and will run throughout the Holy Month of Ramadan. Sponsored for the first time by His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, the tournament consists of 40 teams competing across 10 groups with five-a-side squads including three foreign professional players competing for the winner’s trophy. In addition to a special junior competition for children between the ages of 8-12, there will be a classico game on 5th of August where Barcelona and Real Madrid football legends will battle it out for glory.


For Yousef Al Qatami, General Manager of Ali Alghanim & Sons Automotive, BMW is the ideal partner for events such as the Abdullah Al-Roudan Indoor Football Championship. “The BMW brand is all about innovating and inspiring people with its design, comfort, power and technology. Participation in this event — a tournament that aims to inspire patriotism whilst highlighting the values of competitiveness and exercise — was therefore the perfect fit for Ali Alghanim & Sons Automotive and as such, we were delighted to join the fans and players at this exciting and must-see event,” said Mr Al Qatami.
The tournament has recently taken on a new dimension whereby it has been transformed from a local event to an international one with the participation of footballers from across the Arab world and beyond. This year more than 70 professionals from 15 nations are taking part, including former Juventus and ex-Italy international Alessandro Del Piero.
“The Abdullah Al Roudhan Indoor Football Championship is well established on the Kuwaiti events calendar and considered to be one of the country’s most popular sporting occasions. Over the past 34 years it has inspired the youth of Kuwait and brought the community together through its love of football. Ali Alghanim & Sons Automotive is proud to support such a worthy cause,” added Al Qatami.


As a part of the tournament an exclusive draw for a MINI Coupé was held on Saturday 20th of July with a second one to follow on Friday 2nd, August. An additional tournament highlight was a friendly match between legendary Egyptian clubs Ahly and Zamalek on the 22nd July. The Championship kicked off earlier this month and will run for 28 consecutive days in Ramadan, with daily games starting at 3:00 pm untill 5:00 pm.
