AFDP to host Soccerex 'Asian Forum' in Jordan in 2014

The Asian Football Development Project (AFDP) has signed a new agreement with Soccerex to hold the Soccerex 'Asian Forum' in Jordan in May 2014.

The event will bring together the leading administrators and business figures in Asian football with their global counterparts to look at the development of football across the Asian continent. The agreement was signed in the Jordanian capital by Chairman and Founder of AFDP HRH Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein and Soccerex CEO Duncan Revie.

“The Soccerex Asian Forum in Jordan will definitely break new ground, not only for Jordanian football, but for the development of the sport across Asia. There are certainly many opportunities in Asian football that we need to tap into and invest in and the Soccerex Asian Forum provides us with an excellent opportunity to bring all stakeholders together in order for us to reach our full potential," Prince Ali said, who also serves as FIFA Vice President representing Asia.

Soccerex CEO, Duncan Revie commented: “It is an honour to be bringing Soccerex to Jordan. The country is the gateway to Asia, an immensely populous region with a huge passion for football and huge potential for business. HRH Prince Ali’s vision for football and the role it can play in Asia is truly inspiring and I am delighted Soccerex can play a part in that through the Soccerex Asian Forum. The fact we are holding the event in a magnificent resort overlooking the Dead Sea makes it an even more attractive proposition!“

The Forum will be a continuation of Jordan’s rising profile on the world football stage with the nation reaching the 2014 FIFA World Cup Final playoffs and recently being announced as the host of the 2016 FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup.

The AFDP, launched in Jordan in January 2012, is a non-profit youth commission founded and chaired by Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein. With the support of its Official Partner PepsiCo, AFDP focuses its needs-based support on promoting social development through football across Asia, with a special emphasis on grassroots and youth development, advancing women’s football and empowering women, as well as protecting and developing the game.

AFDP support West Asian women referees for UEFA-led referee course

The Asian Football Development Project (AFDP), a football and development non-profit organization headed by HRH Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein, has lent its support to a group of talented female referees from West Asia to participate in a refereeing course sponsored by the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA).

In coordination with the West Asian Football Federation (WAFF), 8 female referees and assistant referees were selected to join UEFA's Centre of Refereeing Excellence (CORE) program in Nyon, Switzerland. The referees represented Iran (Shiva Yari), Lebanon (Hoda El Awaidi), Jordan (Esra´a Almbaidin) and assistant referees from Iran (Masoumeh Shakouri, Samaneh Mohsenikiasari), Jordan (Heba Abed) and Palestine (We´am M.A Radayda).

The CORE program covered theoretical, on-field practical and fitness training under the supervision of former FIFA referees Wendy Toms and Claudine Brohet, and FIFA assistant referees Maria Luisa Villa Guitierrez and Leif Lindberg. They discussed clips and regulations and listened to presentations given by UEFA Referee Committee Members David Elleray and Dagmar Damkova. On-field exercises included problem solving techniques focusing on teamwork, positioning, personality, Laws of the Game, and disciplinary control.

"This is a fantastic opportunity from UEFA for women from the region to gain top level training, I hope it will help them improve the quality of refereeing and women's football in general back in their countries. Wishing them all the best of luck," Prince Ali said. 

Huda Al Awadi from Lebanon stressed the importance of such exchanges for the development of women's refereeing, "I have learned a lot from a European point of view which is quite different, I'm very thankful to AFDP, WAFF and UEFA for this challenging but extremely beneficial learning experience," she said.

"The course assisted me with pinpointing my strengths and weaknesses," said We´am Radayda, Assistant Referee from Palestine. "It was thorough and extremely professional, I can't wait to share what I've learned with my colleagues in Palestine," she added.

Jordanian Assistant Referee Heba Abed commended the encouraging approach of the instructors at CORE. "The instructors made sure we felt supported and empowered throughout the course, they created a positive environment for us to improve our skills and techniques not just in football refereeing but also fitness and language," she said.

       'Momento Madiba' antes de cada partido del Mundial de Clubes

Como homenaje al fallecido líder sudafricano Nelson Mandela, el Comité Organizador del Mundial de Clubes de la FIFA, que comienza este martes en Marruecos, ha decidido celebrar un 'Momento Madiba' antes del saque inicial de cada partido.
Con esta medida, la FIFA desea ofrecer "a los aficionados al deporte rey la oportunidad de ponerse juntos en pie y aplaudir, para retransmitir por todo el mundo el mensaje de amor y esperanza de Mandela".
"La FIFA, la Confederación Africana de Fútbol (CAF), la Real Federación Marroquí de Fútbol (FRMF) y la comunidad futbolística global desean rendir tributo a una de las figuras más respetadas, reverenciadas y queridas del mundo, Nelson Mandela, que falleció el 5 de diciembre de 2013", explica en un comunicado.
"Esa persona extraordinaria", añade, "que fue símbolo de esperanza, paz, perdón y reconciliación, no se cansó de hacer campaña para llevar a su patria de Sudáfrica la alegría de albergar la Copa Mundial de la FIFA 2010, en su primera escenificación en tierras africanas".
Este año, recuerda la FIFA, "se consumará otro estreno de una competición en África con la apertura de la Copa Mundial de Clubes de la FIFA en Marruecos, el 11 de diciembre".

FIFA Club World Cup 2013: today opening with RAJA Casablanca( Morocco) vs Auckland City( New Zealand)

Opening press conference of the FIFA Club World Cup Morocco 2013

Morocco’s Raja Club Athletic and New Zealand side Auckland City FC kick off the FIFA Club World Cup 2013 this Wednesday gunning for a victory that would be a twofold boon. For both clubs, a win would be a huge confidence booster and would break a run of poor results both in their domestic leagues and in this competition. 
The matchRaja Casablanca-Auckland City, Agadir Stadium, Wednesday 11 December, 19.30 (local time)
Getting back to winning ways after a month of disappointment is the mission for Raja Casablanca in the tournament hosted in their own county. The Moroccan champions are seeking to bounce back from a string of defeats that triggered the dismissal of coach Mohamed Fakhir, the man who had led the team to the domestic title. Making progress in the competition would give one of Morocco’s most historical clubs, who are taking part in the Club World Cup for the second time, an enormous lift. It would also be welcome news for a country that has been starved of success in international football competitions in recent times.
It’s a similar story for Auckland City. Despite being top of the New Zealand championship, the team arrives in Morocco hoping to wipe out the memory of three opening-game eliminations at previous Club World Cups (2006, 2011 and 2012). It goes without saying Auckland would like to repeat their 2009 effort, when they won two matches in the United Arab Emirates. Putting on a good show in a country where the fans are fanatical about their football is good motivation for Ramon Tribulietx’s charges. The coach is still trying to hit upon the right formula following the recent departure of key players such as Albert Riera and Manel Exposito.
The stat
– Auckland City and Raja Casablanca have taken part in six FIFA Club World Cups between them, but have clocked up just two victories in ten matches. Both came in 2009, when the New Zealanders achieved a historic fifth place. The Moroccans took part in the 2000 tournament, losing all three of their games.
The words“Auckland City have played in this competition several times and have achieved some good results. We’ll be giving it our all to win. Anything but victory would be a huge disappointment for the Moroccan people, who are fed up with defeats. We have our hearts set on overcoming this first hurdle,” Raja Casablanca defender Mohamed Oulhaj.
“We’ll be playing in a football-mad country. The atmosphere will be amazing and we need to be at the top of our game. Raja are one of Africa’s most historical clubs and have been national champions many times. We have to enjoy the experience, but we want to be competitive and play well,” Auckland City coach Ramon Tribulietx.

Jordan wins bid to host FIFA U17 Women World Cup

FIFA's Executive Committee made a unanimous decision to award Jordan hosting rights for the FIFA Under 17 Women World Cup in 2016 today at its last meeting of the committee on the sidelines of the World Cup Draw in Brazil.

Jordan bid for the FIFA Under 17 Women World Cup to be held in 2016 last month. Uruguay, South Africa and Bahrain also bid for the tournament.

Commenting on FIFAs endorsement of Jordan's bid, FIFA Vice President and President of the Jordan Football Association expressed his gratitude on behalf of the Jordanian football community for granting Jordan this historic opportunity.

"By granting Jordan the honor of hosting this tournament, FIFA is investing in football development that would have immeasurable positive impact on the progress of women’s football not only in Jordan, but also across the region," said Prince Ali.
"Jordan, from its people to its public and private sectors, has set its heart on embracing this opportunity. We are very appreciative to FIFA for their support and we hope to deliver an outstanding U-17 Women’s World Cup that sets the bar for FIFA events in the Middle East and makes both FIFA and Jordanians proud," Prince Ali added.

The tournament will help kick off a positive wave for women's football in the region, particularly in grassroots football development. 

"I would also like to thank all my colleagues in the Jordan Football Association who worked tirelessly to prepare Jordan's bid, congratulations to you and to all Jordanians for this win," noted Prince Ali.

La FIFA desestima la protesta realizada por Burkina Faso contra Argelia

La FIFA desestimó este martes la protesta presentada por la Federación de Burkina Faso sobre el partido de vuelta de la repesca mundialista ante Argelia, donde denunciaron la alineación indebiba de Madjid Bougherra, el autor del gol que permitió a los argelinos obtener el billete para el Mundial de Brasil.
La Federación de Burkina explicó a la FIFA que Bougherra incumplió la sanción que tenía pendiente del último partido, por acumulación de tarjetas amarillas, pero el máximo organismo del fútbol mundial aseguró que el jugador del Glasgow Rangers aún no había alcanzado el ciclo de amonestaciones.
De esta forma, el órgano que preside Joseph Blatter explicó a Burkina Faso que sus protestas no tienen fundamento y que no se cumplen requisitos formales para presentar una nueva queja. "No ha habido ninguna violación de las normas", dijo la FIFA, que no se pronunció sobre el último minuto de partido después de que se jugase hasta el 93 habiendo añadido cuatro.

Norwegian Foreign Minister inaugurates ‘Norway Football Fields’ in Za’atari Refugee Camp

 Norway’s Foreign Minister Børge Brende inaugurated today the Norway Football Field for Girls at the Za’atari Syrian refugee camp in Northern Jordan during his one day visit to the Kingdom.

Foreign Minister Brende also checked on progress of the second Norway Football Field in Za’atari that is set to be complete next month.

The Norway Football Fields and the Norway Football Fields for Girls encompasses the Government of Norway’s support for Syrian children and youth, which represent more than 50 percent of the refugee population hosted at the UNHCR run camp in Za’atari.

The opening ceremony included football activities for young Syrian girls as well as Syrian coaches residing in Za’atari trained by Jordanian and European coaches.

The Government of Norway recognizes that the rehabilitation and caretaking of Syrian children and youth at risk is integral to addressing the Syrian refugee crisis.
The world’s most popular sport, football plays a key role to help Syrian children cope with the hardship of displacement and instability.

As members of the Human Security Network, both Norway and Jordan share common values and goals concerning the safety of children in armed conflict and the security of individuals threatened by war and conflict.
Addressing the young Syrian girls at the football field, Foreign Minister Brende said; “this football field cannot remove the hardship you are going through. But I hope it could give encouragement at a personal and a community level.”
“I believe that football, through its universality, its ability to make us cooperate and overcome barriers, and its accessibility to girls and boys from all backgrounds can connect us and teach us how to best cooperate to achieve our goals,” he noted.
The Za’atari football fields comprise two of the eight football fields the Government of Norway is supporting throughout Northern Jordan, where the majority of Syrian refugees are currently hosted. The other football fields, currently under construction or renovation include two in Azraq, one in Ramtha, two in Mafraq schools (one for boys and one girls) and one in Al Sareeh sport club.
“I would like to extend my sincere thanks to the Norwegian Football Association and Mr. Per Ravn Omdal; the Jordan Football Association and His Royal Highness Prince Ali bin Hussein; and everyone else who has contributed to making this project possible,” added Foreign Minister Brende.
The Norway Football Fields project is led by the Football Association of Norway (NFF), in cooperation with the Jordan Football Association (JFA) and the Amman based NGO; the Asian Football Development Project (AFDP).
“Through our partnerships in Jordan with JFA, AFDP and other NGOs working in the field, the NFF will not only provide football activities for Syrian children, but also train Syrian coaches; both men and women,” commented Mr. Per Ravn Omdal , Project Manager of the Norway Football Fields and Honorary President of the Football Association of Norway.

“Progress is underway in the six Norway Football Fields we are supporting. We expect that all projects will be complete by March 15th 2014, as agreed with our partners, which also includes the Jordan Ministry of Education,” Mr. Omdal added.

Commenting on the Norway Football Fields project, HRH Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein, President of the Jordan Football Association, founder and chairman of the Asian Football Development Project expressed Jordan’s appreciation for Norway’s support.

“We are very grateful to our colleagues and friends from Norway for their generous support in building and restoring football pitches in Northern Jordan. We enjoy a vibrant partnership with the Football Association of Norway and we look forward to more cooperation in the future, in the best interest of our young boys and girls,” said Prince Ali.

“Football is indeed a powerful medium to bring people together. It has certainly helped raise hope for children in Za’atari,” he added.

Representing HRH Prince Ali were Dr. Fayez Abu Arida from JFA and Ms. Merissa Khurma of AFDP. The launch was also attended by UNHCR representative Andrew Harper, Za’atari camp manager Kilian Kleinschmidt as well as representatives of International Relief and Development (IRD) and the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC).

Alex Gómez Comes en uno de los partidos dirigiendo al Kitchee

Se acabó la aventura de Alex Gómez Comes en Hong Kong. El joven técnico catalán ha decidido, de mutuo acuerdo con el presidente, dejar el Kitchee y regresar para casa. No es un problema de resultados. Gómez Comes le ha dado al Kitchee el mejor inicio de liga de su historia y lo deja como líder y sin haber perdido ningún partido.
Pero en la vida no todo son resultados. Hay otras cosas importantes, como explica el propio técnico a "Mis puntos de vista son muy diferentes a los de los responsables del club. Vengo del Barça y entiendo el fútbol según el talento, la manera de ser de los jugadores y, especialmente, según el esfuerzo en los entrenamientos y en los partidos". Pero el presidente del Kitchee no pensaba igual. "No estaba dispuesto a cambiar mi filosofía del fútbol y eso me ha costado el cargo", explica. Y lo hace sin dudas. "Me voy con el convencimiento de que la integridad es el valor más fuerte de un entrenador profesional". El técnico agradece además, "el apoyo de los jugadores y del staff del club".
Alex Gómez Comes fichó esta temporada por el Kitchee para sustituir a otro técnico formado en Can Barça, Josep Gombau. Dejó el fútbol formativo del FC Barcelona (era el entrenador del alevín C) para probar la aventura en Hong Kong. Ahora, se tomará solo unos días de descanso antes de volver a Catalunya. No tiene ofertas en firme, pero sabe que no le faltarán...

Today Jordan-Uruguay, 1º match playoff by a place in World Cup 2014

Jordan set for date with destiny against Uruguay
More than two years after taking their first step down the road to the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™,Jordan's long and valiant qualifying campaign is about to reach its climax. The final stride will undoubtedly be the most difficult too, with the Asian hopefuls due to face Uruguay in the intercontinental play-off. Fourth at South Africa 2010 and two-time former winners, the South American side look to be a formidable obstacle, meaning Jordan will need to surpass themselves from the very first whistle of Wednesday's opening leg.

The schedule
Wednesday 13 November
Jordan-Uruguay (Amman, International Stadium, 18.00)

The match
Nobody in Jordan expected their national side to reach even this far. Never before have Al-Nashamastood so close to their World Cup dream, and they could even have qualified automatically had they not dropped so many costly points after historic wins against Japan and Australia.

Ultimately they were left facing a play-off with Uzbekistan, and after coming out on top of an epic penalty shoot-out, they remain in the hunt for a coveted ticket to Brazil. Clinching their place among the elite will be no easy task, though, and it will be a case of winner takes all when they tackleUruguay for the first time over two legs.

Their South American rivals boast a rich history and a line-up brimming with gifted players, but Jordanhave their hearts set on making a positive start on home soil, anxious to keep their hopes alive for next Wednesday's decider.

As for La Celeste, they have no intention of missing out on a World Cup in neighbouring Brazil, where they clinched the second of their global titles in 1950. Oscar Tabarez's charges nonetheless struggled to impress during the group stage in South America, desperately toiling to break into the top four only to find themselves in fifth once the dust had settled. That has left them facing a trip into the unknown, but Uruguay will be determined to make their individual and collective qualities count to seal qualification at all costs.

The stat
 This is the fourth time Uruguay have contested the play-offs. La Celeste prevailed against Australia in 2002 and Costa Rica in 2010 but lost out to the Socceroos in 2006. Ahead of the finals in Germany, the two teams traded 1-0 home wins in Montevideo and Sydney before Uruguay finished second best on penalties.

Players to watch
Many eyes will be focused on Uruguay's strike partnership of Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez, and the Liverpool striker will surely merit special attention from Jordan's defence. Suarez topped the scoring charts during South American qualifying thanks to a tally of 11 goals that not even Lionel Messi could match, and since serving his suspension in the Premier League he has been in devastating form, finding the net eight times in six outings for the Reds this term.

Jordan have talent in their ranks too, even if the gulf between the two teams may appear immense. Above all, fans across the country will be hoping for big things from forward Ahmad Ibrahim, the second highest scorer in Asian qualifying courtesy of seven strikes in 18 games.
They said"The match is of very important for this generation of players; this is first time Jordan has been so close to qualifying. We should have the courage and self-confidence to achieve our goal," Hossam Hassan, Jordan coach.
"I do not know much about the Jordan team, but it seems they will put everything on the pitch to qualify, and I have followed their matches against Uzbekistan and Oman, and we will respect them. No one can predict who will win tomorrow, Jordan will give everything they have and we will do the same," Oscar Tabarez, Uruguay coach.
