The Handball Federation is currently in the final stages of preparations for the launch of the new season in the Super Match which will be held between the champion of Sharjah and the Cup of His Highness the President of the UAE and Al Ahli Youth and the Summer Cup. In the event that it is not possible to reside in the Al Nasr Club Lounge, Al Wasl Club has placed an alternative plan to host the meeting, according to Nabil Ashour, Secretary General of the Handball Federation.
Ashour said that the schedules of the new season’s activity have been circulated to the clubs, and that the registration of national and foreign players by the clubs is currently in full swing to support the classes to mark the imminent start of the next season.
And whether there is anything new regarding the regulation or regulations in the super match .. He said: “For Al Ittihad there is nothing new, and the new will be on the side of the meeting Sharjah and Shabab Al Ahli in terms of players who have been contracted and enrolled, whether nationals or foreigners, and through the efforts Both teams benefit from the application of His Highness the President’s decision to register the categories of residents, births of the State and the children of citizens and campaign decrees, and through the level that we hope to be strong, especially since the youth Ahli contracted with a new coach, in contrast, Sharjah maintains the gains of last season, which achieved Two leagues And the cup of His Highness the President of the State. “
And the program of preparing the first team for the Asian Championship to be held in Kuwait ..
Ashour added that the team has set up a preliminary gathering under the supervision of new Spanish coach Fernando Javier Azanza, and there is a second gathering soon. November includes participation in an international friendly tournament consisting of four teams according to the available data, and it is also possible to hold a short camp for a limited period in Bahrain or in any other country close to the region, until the Asian Championship to be held on 12 December.
As for the UAE clubs that are nominated to participate in the Asian Clubs Championship in South Korea, he said, “Sharjah has confirmed its participation in the continental championship and we are still waiting for the approval of Al-Ahli youth.” I think that the decision to participate is not easy because it requires a budget of not less than 400 thousand dirhams for this tournament as it is allowed to participate 4 foreign players, and certainly need a camp preparation, and these circumstances may have caused the delay of the decision of the management of Al-Ahli Youth Club.
On the position of the women’s hand team to participate in the Gulf Olympics scheduled for next October in Kuwait .. Ashour said: “We have a women’s team can be paid in the tournament, but we have not resolved the participation yet because we are waiting for the decision of the General Authority for Sport and the National Olympic Committee to allocate a budget to prepare the team And provide all the requirements for the compilation and qualification of the team for this event, knowing that the UAE women’s team achieved second place in the last Gulf tournament.
