The pro­gramme has spread across the en­tire na­tion, re­in­forc­ing the bank’s lead­er­ship role in so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity. Mark­ing the 8th year of the unique CSR ini­tia­tive, the bank will sup­port the de­vel­op­ment of 15 foot­ball fields across the Sul­tanate in 2019.

The scope of Green Sports sup­port for sports teams in­clude green­ing of foot­ball fields with nat­u­ral or syn­thetic turf, flood­lights or wa­ter de­sali­na­tion equip­ment in ar­eas fac­ing prob­lems of wa­ter salin­ity.

As the na­tion’s lead­ing fi­nan­cial in­sti­tu­tion, Bank Mus­cat aims to pro­vide the im­pe­tus for youth to ex­cel in all are­nas and thereby con­trib­ute to the de­vel­op­ment and progress of Oman.
