(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) The Green Sports initiative launched by Bank Muscat in collaboration with the Ministry of Sports Affairs to promote Oman as a sporting nation is making steady progress across the sultanate as a green playground developed as part of the unique CSR programme will be handed over to Al Rumais team in the wilayat of Barka.

H E Hilal bin Said Hamdan al Hajri, Governor of South Batinah, will preside as guest of honour at the ceremony on June 21, to be attended by dignitaries and senior officials from the bank. The Green Sports initiative was launched by the bank in 2012 to lay the foundation at the grass-root level for a sustainable sports infrastructure. As part of the programme, 20 sports clubs have already been given support to green their playing fields. Significantly enhancing support to the greening initiative, the bank has decided to support 15 sports clubs/teams across Oman to green their playgrounds this year.

To achieve the goals of the initiative, the bank will continue to support all deserving clubs across the sultanate to green their playing fields. The unique CSR initiative has yielded encouraging results with seven teams already completing the project.

Al Reef Team in the wilayat of Ibri was the first to receive a green playground developed by the bank, followed by A'dhahar Team in the wilayat of Bidiyah, Bilad Seet Team in the wilayat of Bahla, Al Noor team in the wilayat of Musannah, Al Etihad team in the wilayat of Ibra, Al Qadsiya team in the wilayat of Adam and Al Najoum team in the wilayat of Khabourah. The bank recognises that local clubs wield immense influence on neighbourhood communities, especially youth, hence clubs with modern infrastructure facilities can help raise sporting heroes for the country.

The initiative reiterates the bank's support to Oman's youth who represent the future of Oman, besides contributing to sustainable development and protection of the environment, thereby ensuring all-round development in Oman. The funding eligibility criteria for the programme include that sports clubs/teams should have been in existence for three years with a minimum membership of 300 youth from the local community. Bank Muscat will lay turf grass and plant trees and hand over the fields to beneficiary clubs/teams.
