Al Khalij Commercial Bank (al khaliji) QSC, in its on-going commitment to the Qatari community as a whole, announced today that it will exclusively sponsor the international Professional Squash Association (PSA) tournament, in association with the Qatar Squash Federation (QSF).

The ‘al khaliji PSA Squash Challenger 2012’ will be held from January 12th to the 14th at Khalifa International Tennis and Squash Complex with 44 players from nine countries, including Qatar, competing for the cup.

al khaliji is delighted to be supporting this year’s squash Challenger,” said Ms. Abeer Al Kalla, Head of Public Relations and Communications at al khaliji. “In the past few years, Qatar has branded itself as the regional capital of sport, and we are proud to be associating our name with this international tournament. We look forward to the competition itself, and wish all the players the best of luck.

al khaliji’s sponsoring of the tournament is part of the bank’s on-going corporate social responsibility programs. With squash, and sports in general, reflecting personal values that benefit societies, supporting the tournament was a natural choice for al khaliji.

“At al khaliji, we strongly support the nation’s 2030 Vision and the goals and milestones it strives for,” added Ms. Al Kalla. “Athletics are a medium for positive change. Squash players demonstrate ideal values such as passion, excellence and respect. These are the very same values that are required from all of us to meet the challenge of achieving Qatar’s goals in 2030. It is only fitting that al khalji sponsors the PSA tournament under our CSR program."
