GAC Sponsor the Mitsubishi Cup Football Tournament for Third Consecutive Year

In its most recent show of support to sports, and in order to continue promoting a healthy and social lifestyle during the holy month, General Automotive Company (GAC), the official distributors of Mitsubishi Vehicles in Oman, has for the third consecutive year sponsored the Mitsubishi Cup Football Tournament 2016.

The month-long tournament, organised by the Shat Al Arab Team from the Wilayat of Seeb, will be held at the Wadi al Awami Football Field and will see 20 teams from Seeb and Bousher vie for top honours.

The final match will be held under the auspices of HE Hilal Al-Sarmy, member of the Shura Council as the representative of the Wilayat of Seeb.

Commenting on GAC’s Sponsorship of the event, Manoj Ranade, GM of General Automotive Company said, “At GAC we have always focused our efforts towards driving awareness and promoting sports in the country. We also place great emphasis on youth development, having sponsored several sport events and youth teams across the country in the past. Furthermore, sponsoring a tournament for a sport as popular as football not only helps further promote the sport but also helps us engage with fans and the community on a more personal level. As such we are honoured to sponsor this tournament and on behalf of GAC I would also like to commend the Shat Al Arab Team on successfully organising a tournament of such scale.”

The tournament, which kicked off early Ramadan, is currently in its group stages with each of the 20 teams split into four groups of five teams. The top two teams in each group with the most points at the end of the group stage will then move on to quarterfinal stage.

“Each of these teams are extremely talented and I believe it’s going to be a tough fight all the way to the top. On behalf of GAC, I would like to wish all the teams and players participating in the tournament the very best of luck in their upcoming matches and we are looking forward to a very entertaining finals in July,” added Manoj Ranade.
