In a first of its kind development, one of Oman’s most decorated clubs, Seeb, is all set to open a mall on its premises. Known as Grand Bazar Seeb, the project spread over 10,000 sqm, is expected to be formally opened early next month and will be an example for the other clubs in the country to follow.
In his remarks to Muscat Daily, H H Sayyid Shihab bin Tariq al-Said, the club’s president, said that The Grand Bazar Seeb will serve the youth and the people of the wilayat of Seeb. It is a project that they envisaged many years back and they are happy to see it completed. It is an example of how sports clubs in the sultanate can look into private investment opportunities to become self-reliant. The Grand Bazar Seeb will boost the club’s financial well-being and is certain to provide benefits on all fronts.
It is worth mentioning that Sayyid Shihab has been instrumental in leading Seeb Club to great heights as it boasts of a record number of 12 His Majesty’s Cup for Youth titles including four in a row, with the last coming in December 2018.
HM’s Cup for Youth is the symbol of club supremacy in the sultanate and Seeb is known for its all-around excellence in various sports with 11 sporting activities practised and promoted by the club.
The club’s mantra to focus on different sports rather than just football has seen it bring laurels in other sports and Grand Bazar is expected to give impetus to more activities.
The mall is expected to have nearly 300 outlets for apparels, toys, household goods, ample parking space and restaurants. It is also going to have accommodation for foreign players of the club and would also rent out office spaces.
