We welcome the creative sports winners to the 7th Edition of the Creative Sports Award that has become part of Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum’s Global Initiatives and a pride to us all.”
He added, “The winners will present their creative experiences to those working in different sports areas, to share the benefits with everyone and motivate every member of the UAE and Arab sports sector to move forward towards creativity and innovation through direct dialogue and documented accomplishments, giving everyone the opportunity to gain profit from these experiences.”
His Highness also insisted on the fact that “this Award is not just a celebration that takes place once a year, but it is meant to spread the culture of creativity and innovation in sports. It aims to introduce creative experiences in different sports categories throughout the world, revealing how they can achieve success, and providing an environment that encourages creativity, innovation and singularity in the way of working, thinking and signing agreements.”
“Creativity and innovation should also be an important factor when choosing speakers, and organizing forums, seminars, conferences and ceremonies where people with creative accomplishments can share their success stories and their competences in Creative Sports to help others, in different areas of the Sports world, to benefit from their experiences; whether in leading a sport, playing it, training, coaching or managing”, said His Highness. “People who work on their ideas and launch creative initiatives also support the sports sector and help it progress and reach the desired aim.” His Highness concluded.
