After an exciting season of play, Emirates Integra and the EAFL are delighted to confirm their ongoing and ever-growing partnership. Not often are such mutually beneficial and fruitful relationships formed and both Emirates Integra and there EAFL are delighted to continue their relationship and strive to take it to new heights. Collaborating as a leading provider of integrated healthcare and the number one American Football league in the U.A.E, the two joined forces early in 2018 to empower and enable athletes in achieving their fullest potential.
Dr.Janine McKay, Medical Director of Emirates Integra and the EAFL’s official team doctor remarked that “Being involved in American Football is not just a sport. It’s a community that brings together all ages and transforms boys into men, men into athletes. American Football is a sport that demands discipline, confidence, communication and character of each and every team member. EAFL players are much more than just helmets and shoulder pads. The environment surrounding the EAFL is positive and plays a role in bringing together communities and having social and cultural impacts. It is truly a pleasure of not just Dr. Bill and myself but our entire team at Emirates Integra. We look forward to continuing this growing relationship”. Dustin Cherniawski, General Manager of the EAFL commented, “We are so pleased to be in partnership with Emirates Integra as it relates to the health and medical treatment of our athletes. Dr.Bill and Dr.Janine not only have a deep knowledge of sports medicine but, more importantly, have a full understanding and respect for our sport – something that is very rare in the region and valuable to the Emirates American Football League. It really warms my heart to see how important community involvement is to Emirates Integra and we look forward to working with them again this season.”
