Dubai: Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) and the Gov Games Organizing Committee have inked a partnership agreement for DEWA to serve as the event’s Silver Sponsor for the fifth consecutive year.
The Gov Games, which are held under the directives of Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of Dubai Executive Council, has become one of the most prominent team-building events within the sports agenda in Dubai. This year’s edition will be held from February 29 to March 3, 2024.
Dr. Yousef Al Akraf, Executive Vice President of Business Support and Human Resources at DEWA and Chairman of DEWA’s Sports Committee, noted that, “With the directives and support of the top management, we are pleased that DEWA is the Silver Sponsor of the Gov Games for the fifth year in a row. The Gov Games has become one of the key sports events in Dubai, playing an integral role in strengthening relationships among local government entities and their regional and international peers.”
“This sponsorship is part of DEWA’s social responsibility to encourage employees and society members to adopt a healthy lifestyle and make sports an essential part of their lives, as well as supporting positive competitiveness among participants, within the framework of the sporting spirit that characterizes sports events held in Dubai,” Dr. Al Akraf added.
Emirates General Petroleum Corporation (Emarat) and Damac Properties are the Golden Sponsors of Gov Games 2024, which are organized in collaboration with DP World as an Official Partner. This year’s edition will see the participation of junior participants, as was announced last year.
The purpose of this addition is to promote mental and physical toughness, teamwork, and strategic thinking. Participants will undergo an enriching experience that enhances their character and motivates them to improve themselves.
The first four editions of Gov Games saw widespread local, regional, and international participation, with over 4,500 participants in the Battle of the Government, Battle of the Community, and Battle of the Cities categories.
