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 en Marruecos

       '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.

Eboue y Drogba, ambos del Galatasaray, jugaron con una camiseta debajo de la oficial de su equipo recordando la figura del político sudafricano. En la de Eboue se pudo leer: "Descansa en paz Nelson Mandela". Y en la de Drogba, cuando fue sustituido, aparecía el siguiente mensaje: "Gracias Madiba".

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.

Un balón perfecto para todas las condiciones y que se inspira en Brasil para reflejar la belleza del juego.
