The UAE Football Association (UAEFA) signed an MoU with Israeli Football Association on Monday at the FA’s headquarters in Dubai.

The MoU was signed by Sheikh Rashid bin Humaid Al Nuaimi, president of UAEFA and his Iraeli counterpart Oren Hasson, in the presence of FIFA President Gianni Infantino.

The MoU envisages organising friendly matches for all national teams and clubs in the two countries, establishing joint workshops for technical and administrative members of the associations, and launching development initiatives that contribute to supporting the game in the two countries.

Hasson said that attending such an event in the UAE was a “dream two months ago and now it has turned into reality. I am calling on everyone to visit Tel Aviv to build strong relations and let future generations know that football unites peoples and is a common language of peace.”

Spanish painter Jose produced a painting carrying the most famous landmarks in the country, the logo of the UAE and Israeli associations, a ball and a white pigeon representing the message of peace between the two countries to mark the signing of the MoU.

Al Nuaimi presented trophies and a shirt for the UAE national team to Gianni Infantino and Hasson.

In a major development for the UAE sports sector, Etihad Airways signed a multi-year agreement to become the official sponsor of the UAE’s national football teams, including the First team, Olympic team, and the Youth teams.
