Ooredoo will be the Official Telecommunication Partner of the Qatar Olympic Committee (QOC) ahead of the upcoming 2016 Association of National Olympic Committees (ANOC) General Assembly, which is set to take place in Doha from 13-17 November.

The ANOC General Assembly is the largest gathering of the Olympic Movement outside of the Olympic Games, and this year will be the first time the event will be held in the Middle East. The General Assembly, which will include 1,200 participants from 206 National Olympic Committees, International Federations and Olympic Stakeholders, aims to discuss topics of importance to the National Olympic Committees for the mutual benefit of all participating countries and the future of the Olympic Games.

Fatima Sultan Al Kuwari, Director, Community and Public Relations, Ooredoo Qatar, said: “This is an ideal opportunity for us to help showcase Qatar as the home of a world-leading National Olympic Committee, and promote our country’s sporting stars. We’ve worked with the QOC team throughout 2016 and from the Committee itself, from the organisation and the athletes, we’ve seen passion, drive and talent. We’re proud to support the QOC with this event, and will use the power of the Ooredoo Supernet to ensure true Qatari hospitality is broadcast to the world.”

Ooredoo continues to offer its support to the QOC after working closely with the Olympic Committee during the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, as well as in various championships – most recently the FINA Swimming World Cup which was held in Doha in October 2016. Ooredoo was named the National Sponsor of QOC earlier in the year, and as part of the agreement, Ooredoo is supporting a host of QOC initiatives during 2016, including all Association of National Olympic Committees events and the Artistic Gymnastics World Cup Series.

As Official Telecommunication Partner, Ooredoo will showcase its brand to a global audience at the assembly as there will be extensive international media attendance.
