Manama, December 31, 2012
Bahrain Bay Development, a $2.5 billion project in Manama, has partnered with Abu Dhabi Sport Channels, enabling the broadcast of football matches and activities of the Gulf Cup (Bahrain 21) from the Bahrain Bay site.
The Gulf Cup is taking place from January 1 to 18 at Bahrain National Stadium and Khalifa Sports City Stadium.
The decision was made after a team from Abu Dhabi Sport Channels (ADSC) researched a number of locations and sites which could be consistent with the aspirations and standards of ADSC as well as a unique location that meets the satisfaction of the channel’s viewers across the world.
Head of sport production and operation at Abu Dhabi Media, Khalil Al Saffar said: “I am thankful to Bahrain Bay for approving our request in broadcasting the Gulf Cup (Bahrain 21) from their attractive waterfront location that meets our technical and broadcasting standards.”
Abdulla Faisal Al Doseri, Bahrain Bay’s deputy chief executive officer said: “Abu Dhabi Sport Channels are one of the world’s leading channels and I am truly privileged that they chose Bahrain Bay to be the centre of the broadcast. I wish them all the success in the future as well as the Gulf Cup (Bahrain 21).”
As per the agreement, ADSC will use the grounds of Bahrain Bay to broadcast the Gulf Cup as well as provide the technical services, support and safety measures required from Bahrain Bay.
In return, ADSC will provide Bahrain Bay with media coverage for advertising the development and progress of the project.
