Menzies Aviation sponsors Al-Habsi Football School in world-renowned tournament

Menzies Aviation was proud to sponsor Al-Habsi Football School’s participation in the prestigious Under-14s Youdan Youth Tournament this year, playing alongside teams such as Bayern Munich and Manchester United.

The Omani school works to educate within the realms of football and with local communities. Despite being in operation for just over a year, Al-Habsi FS has grown from an initial seventy-five young footballers to more than 200 players, with training taking place five days per week.

Andy Watson, Al-Habsi FS Technical Manager, said: “We were delighted that Menzies Aviation made a contribution to our participation in the Youdan Youth Tournament. We were proud to wear the logo on all our team kit throughout the tournament.”

John Henderson, COO Oman, said: “As we begin our exciting journey in Oman with our partners, Oman Air, we thought it wholly appropriate to give something back to the local community. Assisting Al-Habsi compete in the Youdan Youth Tournament fits the ethical and charitable philosophy of Menzies, helping the health and well-being of young people. I want to congratulate Andy and all at Al-Habsi on a successful tournament that I know the boys thoroughly enjoyed.”
