The Corporate Sports Championship is the optimal platform for business networking with the aim of relationship-building and better cross-networking for gov-private sector partnerships in the UAE. This year the Championship is further strengthened by support from our new and existing partners: Media Partner Sport 360, Water Partner MonViso, Venue Partner Swiss International Scientific School, Technology Partner Samsung and Catering Partner Americana.
