February 23, 2023


On February 11, American Embassy staff participated in the activities of Bahrain National Sports Day at Sports City.  The public affairs team set up a booth, and engaged with the public, particularly youth and children, in playing American baseball through a fun, interactive game. All participants in the baseball game received giveaways, which included information on our social media platforms. U.S. Ambassador Justin Siberell attended activities of Bahrain National Sports Day and commented: “This is a really special occasion introducing the American sport of baseball to our friends in Bahrain.  It is an amazing event that brings people together.  We thank the Government of Bahrain for doing so much to encourage National Sports Day. Sports, arts, and cultural programs bring us together and unite us.”
