In its bid to improve the economic and marketing aspects in co-operation with football club companies, the Qatar Stars League (QSL) invited CEOs, marketing officers and sponsors of clubs to attend a workshop on Club Income Development on Tuesday, 28th May, 2019, at its headquarters, in the presence of QSL CEO Mr. Hani Taleb Ballan and QSL’s Executive Director of Marketing, Sales and Communication Mr. Hassan Rabiah Al Kuwari.

Mr. Hani welcomed the club officials and all attendees to the first-of-its-kind workshop, an important step towards increasing revenues of clubs.

The workshop was the first in a series of Club Income Development initiative by QSL. The next phase will feature workshops for marketing managers of clubs to develop their skills in revenue and advertising. It will also include transfer of all information and procedures implemented by QSL and sponsors to football club companies.
