The Jordan Football Association (JFA) has received the Grassroots Recognition Award presented by the Asian Football Confederation (AFC).
"In acknowledgement and recognition of your exemplary efforts to actively develop and promote Grassroots football, I am pleased and honored to reward Jordan Football Association for developing future key players," AFC President Sheikh Salman Al Khalifa said in a letter addressed to HRH Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein who serves as President of JFA.
"We are proud that our hard work at the grassroots level in the past years is reaping results. On behalf of Jordan Football Association, I wish to express my gratitude and appreciation for the Asian Football Confederation for this honorable award," Prince Ali said.
"None of this would have been possible without the wisdom and foresight of the late Captain Mahmoud Al Jowhari, may he rest in peace, who laid the groundwork for the strategy that got us here. Allow me to dedicate this award to the memory of our beloved Jowhari," Prince Ali added.
