Yas Holding has signed an agreement with the UAE Jiu-Jitsu Federation which will see its subsidiary Marmum Dairy become a Gold Sponsor for all the federation’s events taking place this year.
The sponsorship is part of Yas Holding’s continued support of the UAE government’s initiatives to promote Jiu-Jitsu as a sport in the country, while also providing young athletes an opportunity to compete at a global level.
Under the agreement, Marmum will be a Gold Sponsor of the following events organised by the UAE Jiu-Jitsu Federation this year, including the Abu Dhabi World Professional Jiu-Jitsu Championship 2021.
“We’re proud to be supporting Abu Dhabi’s long-term vision to nurture the country’s young athletes. This is a significant sponsorship agreement with the UAE Jiu-Jitsu Federation through which we hope to make a positive contribution to the UAE communities and help build a strong generation of UAE athletes to excel at the local and international levels,” said Murshed Al Redaini, Group CEO at Yas Holding.
This sponsorship agreement also aligns with the strategic vision of Marmum Dairy. “With our numerous dairy products, Marmum is committed to fulfilling the growing need of vital nutrients for the UAE community to help develop competitive, strong and healthy generations. Yas Holding, together with Marmum, are committed to improving public health as well as community vitality and this sponsorship agreement is a representation of that commitment,” said Jeremiah Henchy, CEO of Marmum Dairy.
Fahad Ali Al Shamsi, Secretary-General of the UAEJJF said: “Our federation leads the efforts of promoting Jiu-Jitsu across the UAE by empowering young and aspiring talents. We are committed to organizing local and international events that hone the skills and experiences of our players. Our partners and sponsors support is key for the realization of our vision, and our agreement with Yas Holding falls in line with our efforts to activate private and public partnerships’ role to support Jiu-Jitsu growth across the UAE. This partnership reflects our shared objectives and mission for building a healthy community.”
