United Arab Emirates property website Bayut.com has delighted realtors in Dubai with the first ever football tournament for leading real estate agencies.
The Bayut Football League is playing in three stages at the Sportsmania in Jumeriah Lake Towers in Dubai.
At the first event, teams included Bayut, Driven Properties, Terra Casa, Blissimi, Haus & Haus, Raine & Horne, Espace, JK Properties, McCone, Aston Pearl, Golden Wave, SPF, Aeon & Trisl, Engel and Volkers.
Participants enjoyed zealous support from friends and family.
Bayut’s home team comprised CEO Haider Ali Khan with staff members Paul, Chris, Sam, Adeel, Motaz and Parsi.
While most women at the event turned up to support their teams and friends, Driven Properties team member Cristina donned the kit for some firsthand action, helping her team win all three matches.
The 14 teams, provided with custom kits courtesy of Bayut.com, have been divided into two competitive groups in the five–a-side league and will go head to head in two rounds to vie for a place in the finals, scheduled to be held on March 3.
Amid a rain of goals, the event not only provided participants with an opportunity to indulge in some fair and square sports action on the field, but also proved a great place for professional networking off the field.
Bayut.com CEO Haider Ali Khan says participation in the event has been a through success.
“It is great to see realtors turn up for the love of the sport. Gauging the interest it has garnered, we would love to make such events a regular on our calendar.”
Bayut also holds breakfast events for real estate agencies on a regular basis, aimed at bringing market players closer.
The company has successfully raised funding of $29 million dollars in the last six months and is planning expansion into other regional markets.
