Doha, 29 December 2015 – QNB, the Leading Financial Institution in the Middle East and North Africa, has organized an exclusive dinner for a selected number of its customers with the stars of the Paris Saint-Germain football club. The dinner was held at the Victoria Lounge of the Grand Heritage Doha Hotel.
The exclusive event was attended by Paris Saint-Germain players Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Benjamin Stambouli, Kevin Trapp, Gregory Van Der Weil, and Adrien Rabiot, and they were joined by 25 lucky QNB customers who won the chance to dine with these prominent stars. The event came as part of QNB’s efforts to always come up with innovative ways to reward its customers and the Group’s keen interest in sports as part of its comprehensive Corporate Social Responsibility policy.
In addition to having dinner with the stars, and having the opportunity to take photos with them, the event also saw the distribution of gift items to the winners, including official Paris Saint-Germain jerseys, mini balls, and scarves, which the winners were able to have them signed by the players.
This prominent event comes as another testament to the strong partnership between QNB and Paris Saint-Germain, which started in 2012 with a sponsorship arrangement with the French Ligue 1 champions, in alignment with QNB’s expansion strategy, and expanded to shirt sponsorship in 2013.
Under the terms of the existing sponsorship deal, QNB also benefits from advertising at the club’s Parc Des Princes Stadium in Paris as well as having its logo appear on the back of all Ligue 1 match tickets and other similar sponsorship benefits.
Combined, this gives QNB the international exposure of having its brand appear regularly in front of a global audience, thereby helping it to further elevate its brand visibility to target audiences.
The stars of the famous French football club, Paris Saint-Germain, are currently in Doha in preparation for their friendly match against Italian club Inter Milan at Jassin Bin Hamad Stadium on 30 December 2015.
QNB continues to be a strong supporter of sports in Qatar and abroad as part of its rich Corporate Social Responsibility strategy, that highlights the Group’s keenness on giving back to society and promoting development across its international network of operations.
