"This is an exciting time for football in the region with the Arab games taking place shortly in build up to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, which will see the biggest sporting event in the world happen for the first time in the area and at a different time of year! - which proves things can be done differently! - And us at grassroots level want to play our part in a healthier and more inclusive future both on and off the pitch"
