Following in a long-held tradition, ExxonMobil Qatar is giving fans an opportunity to meet their favorite tennis stars at its stand in the Public Village. Every year, hundreds of tournament-goers flock to the company’s stand to meet world-class players and perhaps even pick up one of the tennis balls signed by them.
This week, World No. 1 Andy Murray, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Tomas Berdych, David Goffin, Arthur De Greef and Philipp Kohlschreiber have made appearances at the stand, where they interacted with excited fans who were waiting to meet them and get their autographs.
As the tournament continues, many more of this year’s star-studded list of players will drop by the stand at random times of the afternoon to meet their fans. ExxonMobil Qatar has been the title sponsor of the Qatar ExxonMobil Open for 23 years, and a partner of the Qatar Tennis Federation (QTF) for 25 years now. Since assuming title sponsorship of this significant sporting event for Qatar and men’s tennis, ExxonMobil Qatar has worked hard to provide a creative space at the Public Village that engages the community in fun and entertaining activities.
Through a variety of partnerships with local organizations such as QTF, the company invests in programs that support education, professional workforce development, and active and healthy lifestyles within Qatar’s community – critical to building a skilled and productive workforce that can sustain Qatar’s future. The Qatar ExxonMobil Open will run from January 2 – 7, 2017, bringing some of the world’s top players together to compete for the trophy and a share of the prize money. Confirmed tournament participants include defending Qatar ExxonMobil Open 2016 champion Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Tomas Berdych.
