MHFC President’s announcement

MHFC has been invited to a friendly match in Abu Dhabi
 
It is with great pleasure and honor for me to announce that our club was invited to play a friendly football match which will be called the ‘Peace Match’ in Abu Dhabi against Al Ain FC.
Al Ain FC is the best football club in the Emirates and its achievements are well known throughout Asia.
 
We have notified them that it will be our honour to play in Abu Dhabi (Al Ain City at Hazza Bin Zayed Stadium in Al Ain City) and to host them in our home city of Haifa.
Their positive reply has just been received and the date of the match will be set depending upon availability in both clubs schedule.
It has always been my belief that sport plays a significant role in forming friendly and peaceful relationships.
 
This match is an important step forward in developing normalization and the peace announcement  between the two great nations of Emirates and Israel.
In a few days we will also have an MOU signed by the two clubs to agree a partnership that will involve sharing best practice together, across both business and sporting functions.

 
I deeply thank H.E Mohamed Bin Thaloob Al Darei the Chairman of Al Ain Club Investments Company and H.E Dr.Matar Al Darmaki Chairman of Al Ain Club FC to make this happen.
Also I would thank Mr Zeev Krichevsky, CEO and Founder of WE TOP EVENTS company, who put us in touch with the club
