In line with its firm commitment to the society and continuous support to the talented, diligent Egyptians across different fields, whether athletic, artistic, cultural and educational, Commercial International Bank – Egypt (CIB) sponsored a special ceremony held by the Egyptian Shooting Club to celebrate and honor the winners of National Shooting Championship, season of 2014-2015.
During the ceremony, CIB distributed certificates of appreciation and cash prizes to nine players in recognition of their outstanding performance and their captivation of the Gold, Silver and Bronze medals in the Championship.
Mr. Hisham Ezz Al-Arab, CIB Chairman and Managing Director said, "We, as CIB, are always keen to support sports in Egypt. We have a solid commitment towards all athletes and it is our duty to encourage them to represent our country on both regional and international arenas and motivate them to achieve the highest ranks."
From his side, Dr. Mogeeb Abdalah, President of the Egyptian Shooting Club, expressed his gratitude and appreciation to CIB Egypt for sponsoring the event, confirming that CIB's sustenance is a great opportunity to encourage the Egyptian athletes and motivate them to achieve more successes in the upcoming competitions and championships.
It's worth mentioning that CIB has been leading a major role to support sports in Egypt, among which the Egyptian Squash Federation. The Bank has been providing the financial support as well as backing the Federation's plan to providing the needed requirements and equipment for talented junior players in order to develop their skills and support their participation in local, regional and international tournaments and the Olympics. In last August, the national junior squash team was crowned the title of Women's World Junior Championship, backed by CIB. Moreover, the Bank is supporting as well the non-traditional sports, such as FlyBoard. During last summer, CIB offered the opportunities to the Bank's customers and fans to try this exciting sport for free in the North Coast.
