ABU DHABI, 17th January, 2023 (WAM) – The UAE Pro League (UAEPL) has launched the “School Tour” initiative in the stadiums of professional clubs. The initiative is organised by the UAEPL in cooperation with the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC).
It also comes in accordance with the goals of the 2020-2030 strategic plan, through which the UAE Pro League endeavours to build up bridges of communication between society and professional clubs.
The tour kicked off at Al Dhafra’s Hamdan Bin Zayed Stadium, where the students of Madinat Zayed schools (Madinat Zayed Campus – Al Dhafra School – Al Falah Academy) toured the stadium that hosts professional competition matches and learned about its various facilities.
They also looked at the pitch and knew how the stadium is managed during matchdays throughout the year.
During their tour, the students enjoyed the recreational activities provided by the UAEPL at the “Fan Zone” to add more fun to the initiative.
Khorfakkan Club is scheduled to host the next programme activities on 18th January, where Al Bayan School students will tour Saqr bin Muhammad Al Qasimi Stadium.
In partnership with professional clubs, the UAE Pro League always seeks to enhance the clubs’ community role through effective communication with all segments of society, especially school students who pay great attention to sports in general and football in particular.
