​As the official bank of the Arabian Gulf League (AGL), ADIB shares the passion of many of the UAE’s young people for football, and in 2014 staged the fourth season of the ADIB Future Champions League, the national grassroots football programme. The programme aims to get more children nationwide playing competitive football and promote a healthy and active lifestyle. It enjoys the full support of the Pro League Committee, Dubai Sports Council and Abu Dhabi Sports Council. 

​Since its launch the league has expanded nationwide, and now offers over 2,000 children annually the opportunity to join in a truly competitive tournament at professional-class venues. All participating children receive ADIB football kits, lunches and refreshments, as well as a toolkit that aims to boost their financial awareness and encourage them to save for the future. It includes a free ADIB account, Darhoom card and a AED 50 bonus from ADIB when the account is opened. ​​​​ ​
