Ooredoo in $50k Special Olympics Sponsorship Deal

Special Olympics Myanmar is to get a $50,000 sponsorship boost from Qatar-based telecommunications company Ooredoo for one year starting last month, Ooredoo said in a statement.
The money will help athletes with their travel, accommodation costs and sporting programmes, the company said.
Ooredoo Myanmar made the sponsorship announcement at Special Olympics Myanmar National Games on October 26.
The president of Special Olympics Myanmar, U Myo Myint, said, “This is the first time we have ever received such tremendous support from an international organisation like Ooredoo Myanmar.
“We see this as a long term and strong relationship between Ooredoo Myanmar and Special Olympics Myanmar.”
Ross Cormack, newly-appointed CEO of Ooredoo Myanmar, said: “As a community based operator, we are proud to show our support towards the Special Olympics Myanmar and are committed towards building sports and sportsmanship within Myanmar.
Ooredoo Group has a history of sponsoring sport clubs and players such as French League 1 football club Paris Saint-Germain and Argentine footballer Lionel Messi. The company said it wants to get engaged in similar sponsorship deals in Myanmar.
Special Olympics Myanmar National Games was held on October 26 in the Youth Training Centre at Thuwunna Stadium with 350 athletes participating.
In 2004, Special Olympics was first introduced in Myanmar together with the training courses conducted by Special Olympics Asia Pacific for Coaches of Myanmar.
