Mazad W.L.L, a local portfolio company of Bahrain Mumtalakat Holding Company “Mumtalakat” mandated with overseeing the Kingdom of Bahrain’s public and electronic auctions, has launched an online auction featuring vehicle number plates starting with ‘67’. The auction begins on Sunday, August the 13th, 2023, and will run until the 30th of August, 2023.

Everyone is welcome to participate in the auction and there is no limit on the amount of number plates that an individual can purchase.

The auction is expected to attract a great deal of public interest as number plate auctions are becoming more popular in the region and attracts people from all segments of society. These digital auctions are integral to Mazad’s identity as the company aims to provide auctions that are open, transparent and fair.
