The Gulf Petrochemical Industries Company (GPIC) organized a Ramadan Football Tournament at its Club, as part of its approach to promoting a one family spirit. Eight teams representing the Company’s different Departments, took part.

Hundreds of employees and their families took part in the event to cheer on their teams and encourage them.

The event was organized by the Company’s Social Activities Committee. Its Chairman and GPIC Corporate Communications Manager Mr. Zuhair Tawfiqi, along with Committee Deputy Chairman and GPIC Logistics Services Superintendent Mr. Mohamed Khalfan honoured the winning teams.

The first place was won by the Maintenance team, followed by the teams from Utilities and Administration, respectively.

In a statement, Company President Dr. Abdulrahman Jawahery said such competitions during the holy month are an occasion for family gatherings and bring together members of society. He praised the Company’s role during the holy month in organizing various events that contribute to strengthening relations and increases ties of familiarity. He said these also contribute in encouraging employees to engage in sporting activities that stimulate the body and increases its efficiency, especially during the month of fasting, when many are idle and refrain from exercise, while consuming excessive food.

Dr. Jawahery thanked the Chairman and members of the Social Activities Committee for their efforts in organizing the event and preparing for it in a professional manner.
