It was intense…the crowd was cheering, the players hearts were pounding and the clock was ticking. Who was going to win the final match at the charity football tournament? Afterall, Yateem Air Conditioning and BMMI are neck and neck at this point! Within second BMMI shoots…and BMMI scores!
The Rotary club of Manama’s annual six-a-side charity football tournament made a welcome return recently at its home, the Bahrain Rugby and Football Club in Saar…and this time, BMMI took home the winning trophy!
BMMI employees used their skills to kick for a good cause, winning the final match, 3 – 2.
All funds raised by the event will go to screening and helping children with diabetes, financial support for the campaign to curb and other genetic blood diseases, and organising events and days out for orphans and children with disabilities.
Over BD22,000 was raised with 30 male teams and 7 female squads competing during the day. The tournament has been the signature fund-raising event of the Rotary Club of Manama for a quarter of a century and in that time has helped several Bahraini charities and purchased critical medical supplies. Aside from the football action, participants and spectators enjoyed entertainment including games and competitions, as well as food stations, prize draws and a live DJ.
