Banque Misr's sponsorship of the tournament comes out of the bank's leading role in social responsibility as one of the most important key pillars of the bank. The bank's contributions to social development are focused on major pillars including health, education, and youth, given that they are the leading core of the home's development.
Banque Misr is seeking to present a positive model to be followed by the rest of the institutions toward building Egypt and developing its youth. The bank is always in the lead providing attention to the youth sector for a better future.
