SPIA Asia / Charity Auction
SPIA Asia – Asia’s Sports Industry & Conference 2017 worked in partnership with Helping Hands Group to raise $5,000 to support the AFC Dream Asia Foundation.
Shaikh Salman bin Ebrahim Al Khalifa, the AFC President who launched the AFC Dream Asia Foundation in March this year, said: “I was delighted that the FA of Thailand President could collect the award on behalf of the AFC and this is just more recognition for the outstanding work of the AFC Foundation.
“It was very generous of the SPIA Awards organisers to donate a cheque to the AFC Foundation and I know discussions are already underway with the FA of Thailand for a suitable cause which will be showcased at the AFC Annual Awards, also in Bangkok, later this month.
“The AFC Dream Asia Foundation was established to ensure that football shows it cares for the less fortunate members of society in Asia. Through the Foundation we are dedicated to providing efficient, effective and transparent aid and recognition like this award demonstrates we are on the right track.”
