Most of these sports are closely related to the desert sands and the environment of the Emirates where falcons, camels, and horses dominate the scene. Our strategic partnership reflects our commitment to encourage a deeper appreciation of UAE’s cultural and historical legacy, especially for the younger generation to practice and preserve the Emirati sporting tradition”.
