GAC Qatar and Doha College have signed a three-year exclusive sponsorship deal where GAC sponsors the sporting kit worn by primary and secondary school students at the College’s Al Waab and West Bay campuses.
The new partnership is the latest continuation of the relationship now entering its seventh year.
Under the agreement, GAC Qatar is the singular sponsor of the College’s sporting kit and the GAC logo will grace the official sportswear of over 400 students aged 7-18, when they compete in more than 400 fixtures, including events staged by the Qatar Private Primary Schools Sport Association (QPPSA) and Qatar United English Speaking School (QUESS). Doha College students will sport the GAC brand as they play football, basketball, rugby, netball, swimming, rounder’s, softball and volleyball, as well as in the athletics arena.
Head of PE, Gary Froud, said:
We are delighted to announce yet another partnership with our good friends at GAC as both parties have benefitted tremendously from this relationship over the years. Our PE department is very successful and our students frequently win local and region competitions, as well as in Europe, which gives GAC great exposure. Doha College sees Physical Education as an extremely important component of its curriculum as it educates students to choose a healthy and active lifestyle, which we hope they continue into adulthood.’
GAC Qatar is no stranger to the sports field. The company has been providing logistics and shipping services in Qatar for nearly four decades and is now the country’s leading provider of integrated shipping, logistics and marine services, including specialist forwarding and clearing services for a wide range of sporting events such as the Doha Asian Games and Arab Games.
