Doha Bank has announced the winners of its Al Dana Savings Scheme campaign for June 2017.

Xavier ‘Xavi’ Hernandez Creus, the legendary Spanish professional footballer, who currently plays as a central midfielder for Qatari sports club Al Sadd, was crowned the winner of the mega QR1m prize in this year’s third Al Dana draw.

The draw event took place at Doha Bank’s Mall of Qatar branch, in the presence of the bank’s senior management team, employees and customers, and was streamed live on Doha Bank’s Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube social media platforms.

Commenting on the win, Xavi, who has previously played for FC Barcelona and the Spanish national team, said: “Winning the QR1m cash prize was an unexpected but welcome surprise. I had opened my account at Doha Bank on December 5, 2016, as I had taken interest in the Al Dana programme after hearing about how Doha Bank encourages their customers to save money, and get a chance to become millionaires, as well as the opportunity to win other cash prizes. I started to invest with the Al Dana Savings programme, aiming to win the QR1m. Today, I can say that I’m happy that I opened an Al Dana Savings account and invested my savings. I would like to thank Doha Bank for this opportunity and I wish the same luck unto the other Al Dana customers in the future.”

The second biggest prize of QR100,000 was awarded to M Al Majid, while 15 additional winners received with QR10,000 each. A Al Dosari was named the winner of the Young Savers Scholarship prize worth QR25,000.

This year, more than QR6m was given away in cash prizes to Doha Bank Al Dana Savings programme customers. Since the start of the programme, more than QR126m in cash prizes have been given away.

“Doha Bank is delighted to announce Xavi Hernandez Creus as the millionaire winner of the Al Dana Savings Scheme June draw,” said Dr R Seetharaman, CEO of Doha Bank.

“The Al Dana Savings Scheme campaign is currently in its 13th year, and till date, the programme has created many millionaires and given out cash prizes worth millions of Qatari Riyals, and we are proud to see the program continue to grow in impact – both in terms of promoting a savings culture among Qatari residents and providing them with an opportunity to win life-changing prizes.”
