World Cup 2026: Saudis push to be football power player

first_img0Shares0000Saudi Arabia players listen to the head of the General Authority for Saudi Sport, Turki Al-Sheikh (C), as they gather during a training session at the Luzhniki stadium in Moscow on June 13, 2018 ahead of the Russia 2018 World Cup football tournament © AFP / Alexander NEMENOVRIYADH, Saudi Arabia, Jun 14 – Saudi Arabia may be World Cup minnows, but analysts say the kingdom’s backing of North America’s winning bid to host the 2026 tournament underscores a drive to become a football powerhouse in the face of regional rivalries.The United States, Mexico and Canada edged out underdogs Morocco on Wednesday in a vote by members of football’s world governing body FIFA supported by Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia has long been a marginal player in football’s ruling classes, unlike its Gulf rival Qatar — set to host the 2022 World Cup — with which it is embroiled in a year-long diplomatic spat.But the oil-rich kingdom is seeking to change that with plans to launch a new regional bloc of federations — dubbed the South West Asian Football Federation (SWAFF) — which will comprise 14 nations, excluding Qatar.There have been some suggestions the bloc could give Saudi Arabia greater influence in key decisions facing FIFA, but it is only likely to overshadow the Doha-based Gulf Football Federation.“Saudi Arabia has ramped up its involvement in the governing architecture of world football in recognition of its popular appeal to its youthful society and a tool of international soft power,” Kristian Ulrichsen, a fellow at Rice University’s Baker Institute for Public Policy, told AFP.– ‘Soccer, a battlefield’ –Saudi-linked investors are also said to be involved in a $25-billion proposal for two football tournaments that could give the kingdom a bigger voice in global soccer governance.“This is all part of the Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s larger strategy of coming out against, or at least appearing to counteract, Qatar and Iran at every opportunity,” Ellen Wald, author of the book Saudi Inc., told AFP.Saudi players train at the Luzhniki stadium in Moscow before they take on Russia in the opening match of the 2018 World Cup © AFP / Alexander NEMENOVSaudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and Egypt snapped diplomatic and trade ties with Qatar last year, accusing it of bankrolling Islamist extremists and fostering ties with arch-rival Iran. Doha denies the charge.With the 2022 World Cup bid having been the target of bribery allegations, Saudi sports authority chief Turki al-Sheikh has suggested Qatar should be stripped of the tournament if found guilty of wrongdoing, and replaced with England or the United States.“Soccer, and particularly the Qatar World Cup, is an important battlefield in the increasingly overt public relations battle between the Gulf state and its detractors,” said James Dorsey, a fellow at Singapore’s S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies.– Betrayal –Morocco, which had hoped to become the second country in Africa to host football’s biggest competition after South Africa in 2010, voiced bitter disappointment over what local media has dubbed Riyadh’s betrayal.The press accused Saudi Arabia, Morocco’s long-time ally, of leading an “all-out campaign” in favour of the North American trio, which won the bid by a margin of 69 votes.While the Arab League was reported to have offered its support for Morocco’s bid, at least seven Arab countries voted for the trio, while Qatar voted for the North African country.The Lebanese sports ministry voiced “surprise” that its own football federation voted in favour of the North American bid.Saudi Arabia fans hold scarves and flags before the start of the Russia 2018 World Cup Group A football match between Russia and Saudi Arabia at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow on June 14, 2018 © AFP / Patrik STOLLARZSaudi authorities did not respond to AFP’s request for an interview with Sheikh.“The Saudis had been trying to deliver the regional vote to America to underscore their growing geopolitical assertiveness across the Middle East and North Africa, and underscore their bid to be the Trump administration’s closest regional partner,” said Ulrichsen.– ‘Saudi genie’ –Riyadh’s regional ambitions dovetail with the kingdom’s wide-ranging reform drive for a post-oil era.Long known for its ultra-conservative mores, the kingdom has signed deals to host international championships in partnership the wrestling franchise WWE and the Formula E motor racing series.Plans are also afoot to privatise more than a dozen soccer teams in a bid to raise funds.“This strategy plays well in the eyes of Saudis. However, I would question the value of deploying so much diplomatic and financial capital in the sports arena,” said Wald.“It may not yield very much political capital for the amount of money being spent.”But it seems there is no stopping Sheikh, who the Saudi state media said in December had won a regional award for the “Most Influential Figure in Arab Football”.“We were asleep for 15 years,” the Saudi sports chief told CNN in May.“But now we’ve been awoken like a Saudi genie and we’ll achieve results that will astonish everyone.”burs-ac/dv0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

BOOST FOR GORTAHORK AS 100 UNIVERSITY STUDENTS ATTEND IRISH COURSE

first_imgGORTAHORK has hosted more than 100 Irish language university students from the North.The BA Irish Language and Literature students from the University’s Belfast, Coleraine and Magee campuses spent a week in the area on an intensive language programme delivered by University of Ulster staff.Irish language students at Ulster have been attending immersion courses in the Gortahork area of County Donegal for more than 30 years but this year’s course marked a change in structure. Dr Malachy Ó Néill, Head of School of Irish Language and Literature explained “Traditionally our students have spent a fortnight on the residential Gaeltacht course around Easter each year but this has become increasingly difficult in recent times for students who work part-time and who also have coursework deadlines to meet late in the second semester.“The new structure means that students have the opportunity to fulfil the course requirements in terms of residency in a Gaeltacht community by spending one week there per semester. The second course is scheduled for March 2013.”Dr Gearóid Ó Domagáin, Director of the Gaeltacht Course, said he was delighted with the high level of attendance and engagement from the student body.“I would also like to acknowledge the support from Ulster staff who travelled to Donegal to organise and deliver language lessons, seminars and cultural activities. “This year we also introduced a series of afternoon lectures which greatly enriched the course. This enabled students to benefit from new perspectives on their courses in language and literature while resident in an Irish-speaking environment.”All teaching was delivered through the medium of Irish and students and staff stayed with local Irish-speaking families throughout the week. The course concluded with a dinner and Céilí Mór. BOOST FOR GORTAHORK AS 100 UNIVERSITY STUDENTS ATTEND IRISH COURSE was last modified: November 15th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:BOOST FOR GORTAHORK AS 100 UNIVERSITY STUDENTS ATTEND IRISH COURSElast_img read more

Bayern, Dortmund face winnable fixtures as Bundesliga rolls into week

first_imgBayern defeated Schalke 04 3-0 in their last game. (PHOTO/Courtesy)The German Bundesliga returns this weekend with 9 fixtures across Germany.Defending champions Bayern Munich will be at home to Mainz in what should be a straight forward affair for the Bavarians.After a shock 2-2 draw at home to Hertha Berlin on opening day, Bayern resumed business as usual, dispatching Schalke 04 3-0 away from home.Robert Lewandowski has pretty much been doing it all alone as he has scored all of Bayern’s five goals this season.Despite winning 3-0 last weekend, Bayern have looked fragile at the back and it will be an area of concern going into Saturday’s encounter.Nico Kovac has tinkered with his starting central defence partnership in the first two games as he played Nikolas Sule and Benjamin Paverd against Hertha and then paired the former with Lucas Hernandez in game two.With the combination having secured a clean sheet against Schalke, Sule and Hernandez are expected to be maintained for a second game running.In the middle, marque signing Philip Coutinho is expected to make his full debut after securing a move from Barcelona last Monday. The Brazilian came off the bench last week and impressed.For Mainz, they are in dare need of points already, having lost their first two games.A 3-0 loss at Freiburg was followed up with a 3-1 loss at home to Borrusia Monchengladbach and Sandro Schwarz’s sided are already in danger of topping the book-makers list of relegation favorites.Results are not coming and their sick-bay is already filled up with up to six first-teamers currently nursing injuries.This looks like a forward win for Bayern who have beaten Mainz in all four of their last head to head meetings.As Bayern will be trying to secure easy points at home, rivals Dortmund will be away to newly-promoted Union Berlin.Dortmund have hit the ground running this season, winning all of their first two games, scoring an impressive 8 goals whilst conceding just twice in the process.On opening weekend, they humiliated Augsburg 5-1 before coming from a goal down to defeat Koln 3-1.Their front three of Jordan Sancho, Paco Alcacer and Marco Reus are all in good form and will be expected to lead the Black and Yellows to a perfect 9 points from three games.Union Berlin on the other hand are yet to win a Bundesliga game since attaining promotion three months ago.The debutants have lost 4-0 at home to RB Leipzig and scrapped to a 1-1 draw away to Augsburg last weekend.Three points of Dortmund may be a dream but if Berlin can at least get a point in the game, it may be the inspiration they require to kick-start their bid to survive an instant return to the second tier.The Bundesliga will kick-off on Friday with a mouth-watering fixture pitting Monchengladbach at home to high-flying RB Leipzig.Gladbach bounced back from a disappointing Match-Day 1 draw at home to Schalke as they defeated Mainz 3-1 away from home.However, they are set to be without six players including captain Lars Stindl for the visit of a Leipzig side that has so far won all their games this season.Julian Nagelsmann’s side beat Union Berlin 4-1 and then Frankfurt 2-1 and will be favourites for a win on Friday.All the German Bundesliga Match-Day 3 fixturesFriday, 30-08-2019-Gladbach vs Leipzig @9:30pmSaturday, 31-08-2019-Bayern vs Mainz @4pm-Leverkusen vs Hoffenheim  @4pm-Wolfsburg vs Paderborn  @4pm-Freiburg vs Koln  @4pm-Schalke vs Hertha Berlin  @4pm-Union Berlin vs Dortmund  @7:30pmSunday, 01-09-2019-Bremen vs Augsburg  @4pm-Frankfurt vs Dusseldorf @7pmComments Tags: German Bundesligatoplast_img read more

‘In his memory we draw strength’

first_img5 December 2014South Africa’s Acting President Cyril Ramaphosa has called on South Africans to honour the memory of former late President Nelson Mandela on Friday.“On 5 December 2013, we lost the father of the nation, one of the most revered leaders our country has ever produced, Nelson Mandela,” Ramaphosa said, on behalf of President Jacob Zuma who is currently in China on a state visit.He encouraged the country to observe a moment of silence at 10am until 10.03am, when South Africans everywhere are asked to sing the national anthem.To call the country to attention, churches, mosques, temples, factories, schools and motorists are asked to ring their bells, sirens, hoot and use loud hailers at 3 minutes and 7 seconds to 10am (09:56:53).This would make the time from the signal to the end of the three minutes of silence exactly 6 minutes and 7 seconds – symbolising the 67 years Mandela gave to the cause of freedom.Read more on Media Club South Africa: How to remember Nelson Mandela on 5 December“South Africans are urged to wear their favourite Mandela t-shirt, shirt or other memorabilia on December 5 in his remembrance,” the Presidency said.All of those on social media are asked to use #RememberMandela to share their memories of Nelson Mandela.“In his memory we draw strength and comfort from the love, support and unity he bequeathed to the people of South Africa, Africa and the world. We are stronger and more united by the legacy he left us,” Ramaphosa said.“Let us all keep Nelson Mandela’s legacy alive by living his values in every aspect of our own lives – unflinching sacrifice in the humble service of all of humanity. All South Africans are urged to play their part in moving South Africa forward as part of efforts to build a better South Africa, in a better Africa, in a better world, and in memory of this icon of our people, Nelson Mandela.”There will be a wreath-laying ceremony attended by veterans of the struggle, including Madiba’s life-long friend and confidant Ahmed Kathrada, at the Mandela statue on the Union Buildings lawns at 8am on Friday.Source: SAnews.govlast_img read more
