At least 300 young Saudis have learned personality development values like team work, humility and self-respect at a four-month program, organized recently by the Royal Commission for Jubail.

A grand ceremony marked the closing of the program, FutbolNet, at the Al-Dana Sports Stadium in Jubail Industrial City.

The program was held by FC Barcelona under the auspices of Shell Co. for Global Services.

The concluding ceremony was attended by Prince Abdulaziz bin Turki Al-Faisal, Mosleh bin Hamid Al-Otaibi, CEO of the Royal Commission for Jubail, and Shell CEO Patrick.

“The Royal Commission will continue its cooperation with Shell and Barcelona Foundation on the FutbolNet program for the development of young talents,” Al-Otaibi said, stressing the RCJ’s keenness to provide students with the best educational means.

He said that officials in Barcelona Foundation were impressed by the positive results and potentials of Saudi students through the study that was conducted on students and parents.

“The program helped participating students to acquire a teamwork spirit and self-development, qualities that are very important for the future generation,” said Patrick.

The event included a field show for the values presented in the program, such as effort, respect, teamwork and humility, which help in the development of personality through sports practices.

Al-Otaibi presented commemorative shields to Prince Abdulaziz bin Turki Al-Faisal, the Shell CEO, and the executive director of the program at Barcelona. The participants were given certificates of appreciation.

FutbolNet aims to promote healthy habits and sports-related values in youngsters, providing sports experience for the development of skills.

This year, the RCJ has signed a memorandum of understanding with Shell for Global Services Ltd. to apply this program for the first time in the Kingdom as a social contribution to develop young Saudis.
