His Majesty the King’s representative for Charity Work and Youth Affairs and Supreme Council for Youth and Sports chairman Shaikh Nasser bin Hamad Al Khalifa has named Shaikh Nasser Media Office and Information Centre director Tawfiq Al Salehi as CEO of the sixth Nasser bin Hamad Ramadan Sports Tournament ‘Nasser 13’ which will take place during the holy month of Ramadan.
Al Salehi thanked Shaikh Nasser for his support to the event which is considered a comprehensive national sporting project.
“Shaikh Nasser’s support has contributed to making this event reach its 13th edition in football and sixth for other games. Since its launch, the event has managed to supply national clubs with players, some of whom have even represented our national teams. This was one of the objectives of this tournament and now we are reaping the fruits,” Al Salehi said. “The event has gone even further by introducing many successful administrators and some of them are now working for national clubs too. It gives us great pride when we remember the first edition of the tournament which commenced in 2007,” he added. “Now we will work on forming the High Organisation Committee.”
