Ooredoo has announced it will reprise its role as Diamond Sponsor for the annual Camel Racing Festival, an event designed to showcase Gulf and Qatari culture and preserve Qatar’s heritage for future generations. 
The Camel Racing Festival - held until 1 April 2021 at Al Shahaniyah Camel Race Track – is one of the most popular camel racing events in the region, with hundreds of trainers from all over Qatar and the Gulf region bringing thousands of camels to compete. 
The festival features a schedule of races run over a range of distances. The final race is considered the most prestigious, with the winner being awarded the sword from His Highness the Emir of Qatar, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani. 
Sabah Rabiah Al-Kuwari, Director PR at Ooredoo, said: “We’re proud to be continuing our Diamond Sponsorship of this historic event. We consider Qatari culture to be at the heart of our community, and supporting the communities in which we operate - in particular, community events that promote the preservation of Qatari culture - is a key priority for Ooredoo as part of our corporate social responsibility strategy. Best of luck to everyone taking part!”
