For the fifth consecutive year, Egypt Oil & Gas organized the Ramadan Petroleum Soccer Tournament, which has become the premier social event in the oil and gas industry over the years.
However, this year’s tournament had a different motive as it was held in solidarity with the victims and martyrs’ families of the January 25th Revolution.
Egypt Oil & Gas dedicated a share of its revenues to the victims and martyrs’ families; a cause that has been supported by all the sponsors and participating teams to pay gratitude and appreciation to the ones who fought for freedom and justice.
EOG has been keen on supporting a social cause in each term of the Ramadan Petroleum Soccer Tournament.
This tournament has become a source of great wealth to the teams that participate in it and brings together the best companies from both the private and public sector to compete against each other through group stages and then knockout rounds that ultimately lead to an extraordinary ending final.
In the Egyptian Revolution edition of the 2011 tournament, a total of 24 teams competed to earn the first place title, which were, RWE Dea, Wika, Shell, Transocean, SiPetrol, Dana Gas, Kuwait Energy, Lufkin, Schlumberger, EDC, CB&I, Baker Hughes, PICO, Apache, Smith, Caltex, ItalFluid, Halliburton, NOSCO, Napesco, Efadco, IEOC, Siemens and IBM.
First place goes to NAPESCO
NAPESCO triumphed first in the 5th Ramadan Petroleum Soccer Tournament after beating Halliburton in penalties. They deserved to have the gold medals and granted the first place prize, while Halliburton came in the second place.
While in the semi-final match, the two semi-finalists were Apache and Shell. The first team earned the third place title in just a minute, as Shell Team did not show up.
As for this year’s awards, Kuwait Energy had the largest share, being awarded Best Team Spirit, Best Audience and Best Sports Ethics Award to Yasser Salama.
Napesco earned two other titles as well; Most Enetertaining Team and Best Scorer to Ahmed Abdel Moula.
The Fair Play Award was given to Transocean, Best Player of the Tournament to Waleed Mekhemar (Halliburton), Best Goal Keeper to Mohamed Atlam (EDC), Best coach to Tarek Aly (Apache) and Best Refree to Ayman Solaiman.
