Al Forsan International Sports Resort announces the appointment of its new General Manager, Mr. Rashed Al Qubaisi. After working as Deputy General Manager of the sports resort for over two years, Rashed, with his strong leadership skills and vast knowledge and passion for sports is going to be responsible for the operations and organization of Al Forsan on a day to day basis, along with overseeing the development and strategic projects of the resort.
“It is a tall responsibility, but one that I’m very honored and glad to accept. While Al Forsan remains to be the country’s premier leisure and sports destination, during my term, I aim to take it even further to the next level. As we improve our facilities and services internally, we also include it in our mission to reach out to more people and encourage them to embrace an active and healthy life today,” says Rashed.
One of Rashed’s first projects is the “Get Active” campaign, which has opened the gates of Al Forsan and waived the regular entrance and parking fees increasing the accessibility of the sports resort to more locals, residents and tourists. Under his management, the Abu Dhabi Sports Council (ADSC) Sports Challenges has also been activated. This is a series of events and competitions open to the public for 2015 sponsored by ADSC, under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, ruler of Abu Dhabi.
Rashed, a keen sports enthusiast and regular at each of the sporting areas at Al Forsan when time permits, was previously the Manager for Yas Drag Racing Festival 2010. This earned “Motorsports Event of the Year” in response to the prestige it earned.
