Spotlight: Qatar Steel’s Commitment to Sports

On the occasion, Qatar Steel organized a family sports day at the nearby MIC Sports Complex in Mesaieed. This event was attended by employees from numerous departments along with their families.
The day was considered a great success by all those who attended. Two professional and energetic instructors man-aged the day’s events, which included football, basketball and cricket. Smaller informal games were also arranged to ensure children of all ages where included in the day’s events.
In addition to celebrating the National Sports Day, Qatar Steel’s PR department also holds a several week long annual sports event. This is larger, longer event gives the company more time to implement its intentions in developing its workforce, by providing a range of physical activities. Enthusiastic employees participated in large numbers in football, cricket, basketball, table tennis, regular tennis and badminton. The event came to an end with athletes meeting at the MIC Sports complex in May. The winners and runners-up were awarded with medals and cups.
