Zurich Insurance and Takaful have made a commitment of RM500,000 to name the new Track and Field at the ISKL Ampang Hilir Campus. "Zurich Field" will be the new home for Panther Track and Field, Rugby, Touch, and Men's and Women's Football (Soccer) when the new campus opens in August of this year. In addition to the naming of the facility, ISKL will partner with Zurich to host one of their "Eat Right to Play Right" events on the Zurich Field in the next school year. This signature outreach initiative of the company seeks to educate children and youth on good nutrition through football.
"We are thrilled to partner with ISKL in this way," said David Fike, Chief Executive Officer of Zurich General Insurance Malaysia Berhad and Executive Director of Zurich General Takaful Malaysia Berhad... "The opportunity to be associated with the country's premier international school by branding this new athletic facility and to partner with the school in the delivery of our prime CSR initiative (Eat Right to Play Right) just makes good sense."
The new Zurich Field at ISKL has been designed to be a world-class sporting facility and will feature an eight-lane, 400 meters, Olympic track, a natural turf field with irrigation and specially designed spectator seating. The facility complements a unique Aquatics Center with three pools, two large Gymnasia, and other flexible playing fields on the campus.
"The commitment of companies like Zurich is really overwhelming," noted Dr. Norma Hudson, ISKL Head of School. " This sponsorship is wonderful not only for the resources it brings us to enhance this facility but also because of the opportunity to partner with the company on their programs to help in the area of children and youth. Such outreach is an integral part of our program, so the match here is wonderful."
