We want the name of VIVA to become synonymous with sports sponsorship in all Kuwaiti football teams.



Signing a long-term partnership with KFA, he continued, is in line with VIVA's corporate strategy that stems from the company's belief in the importance of the sports sector and the KFA's role in reviving football in Kuwait.
