Dubai: The Mohammed bin Rashid Global Centre for Endowment Consultancy (MBRGCEC), in association with 9714sports, has announced the launch of a new sports endowment in Dubai that seeks to encourage athletes to contribute to humanitarian work through their participation in various sports competitions.
The agreement to launch the sports endowment was signed by Zainab Juma Al Tamimi, director of MBRGCEC, and Amal Majid Al Muhairi, managing director of 9714sports. According to the agreement, part of the income generated by athletes from their participation in sporting events and activities organised by 9714sports will be used to launch the sports endowment.
