Falconry 1
(MENAFN Press) The Fazza Championship for Falconry has seen some of the finest quality falcons from the Emirates and across the GCC competing in the Shaheen Farakh and Shaheen Jirnas categories with over 100 birds flying for a place in the upcoming Championship finals. Organised by the Hamdan Bin Mohammed Heritage Centre, the Championship is being held in Ruwayyah



The competition played host to a mix of local Emirati and GCC nationals in both categories, all eager for their high quality and extremely skilled birds to qualify. The Qatari-based Labrtha Qatar Club is the first Qatari team to compete in the Championship under the tutelage of Ali Al Mohannady, president of the club and the team is competing with 13 members and 18 falcons.



Ali Al Mohannady said: "We are proud to compete as the first Gulf team in this Championship and are extremely grateful to HH Sheikh Hamdan and the organisers for their hospitality. The Championship is set in a perfect location and the welcome we have been given has been fantastic. This is an ideal event that allows people to celebrate their heritage.



Dumaithan Bin Swaidan, Head of the Fazza Championship for Falconry commented: "We did not expect such a large number of participants from the GCC this year and we made sure that we provided the best services and facilities, so that participants could enjoy this exciting sport. We would like to thank the Qatari team Labrtha for their participation and wish the other contestants in the GCC all the best for the rest of the competition."
