Jaidah Automotive supports athletics at the American School of Doha with the sponsorship of three scoreboards

March 2017 – The American School of Doha (ASD) recognizes Jaidah Automotive for their unyielding support of ASD athletics, most recently with the sponsorship of the outdoor field scoreboards.

In June of 2016 Jaidah Automotive made a donation that went toward the funding of three new scoreboards; one new baseball field scoreboard, one High School field scoreboard and one Elementary School field scoreboard. The previous scoreboards were not working, outdated and replacement parts were no longer available, therefore could not be used.  

Sponsorship of the scoreboards have a large impact on ASD athletics and students as well as members of our outside community groups, such as the Qatar Little League (QLL,) who benefit from the use of the scoreboards during their games and tournaments.

Khalid Samir, Operations Director at Jaidah Automotive said, “Jaidah Automotive has been supporting ASD since its foundation by our Chairman of Jaidah Motors and Trading, Mr. Jassim Jaidah and encourages supporting the school as it is a non-profit educational institution.”

Samir added, “We are delighted to continue our support by sponsoring the scoreboards on the outdoor fields. Diversifying our support as well as our CSR outreach to include the athletics program of ASD, and to involve youth in sports is one of Jaidah Automotive and Chevrolet’s community engagement focus points. We look forward to students being able to compete in this year’s tournament and many to come.”

“The new scoreboards add a great level of fun and engagement to the games on the fields,” stated ASD Director, Dr. Tom Hawkins, “Now we can track the games by innings, see how much time is left, and follow the score to all games on each of our fields.  We appreciate the support of Jaidah Automotive in making the sports facilities at ASD first rate.  The partnership between ASD and Jaidah Automotive is greatly valued and very much appreciated.”      

The American School of Doha (ASD) would like to express sincere gratitude to Jaidah Automotive for their support to our school and its community groups. All contributions made to ASD help strengthen our efforts to inspire and empower our student athletes in becoming positive, active global citizens.

About Jaidah Automotive

Jaidah Group’s history stretches back over 100 years, to the late 19th century. As the Group grew in size and influence, so Qatar was modernizing around it. During the 20th century the automobile – once a luxury – became a necessity, and Jaidah Group responded by launching its passenger vehicle division, Jaidah Automotive, over 50 years ago.

The bedrock of Jaidah Automotive’s product suite comes from its long-standing relationship with the globally-renowned motor manufacturer General Motors (GM). The durability of this relationship sees Jaidah Automotive as the sole distributor of GM’s Chevrolet marque in Qatar. The breadth and quality of Chevrolet’s product range is a great place to start in bringing motoring excellence to this country.

Today, Jaidah Automotive is the foremost retailer of its type in Qatar. This is a position that has been achieved through a combination of factors: the best products, numerous showrooms, superlative customer service and a dedication to building relationships with suppliers and, crucially, the all-important customers. 

Jaida Automotive maintains five showrooms in Doha (Al Rayyan, Jaidah Square, Salwa Road, Jaidah Flyover and Al-Khor) where these superlative vehicles can be viewed and purchased, and maintains four GM-Certified Quick-Service Centers, other than the main workshop in the Industrial Area.
