This agreement was signed by Mustapha Zine, vice-president of the Royal Moroccan Golf Federation, and Abdullah Hachimi, vice-president of the Emirates Golf Federation.
According to a statement by the Royal Moroccan Golf Federation, the agreement between the two parties consists of the development of a high-level sports program including training camps as well as a series of competitions that will be held alternately between the two countries.
Within the framework of this partnership, the actions will be carried out by mutual agreement between the technical directions of the two federations for the creation of the first Moroccan-UAE junior tour, the implementation of a high level training program to develop junior golf and the reinforcement of technical skills by experts.
Actions will also focus on developing a specific preparation program for the World Amateur Team Championship to be held in Dubai in 2023 and sharing expertise in high-level coaching.
“In the context of a booming Arab golf on an international market marked by the strong emergence of a new generation of players, the two federations have decided to combine their assets and expertise in favor of their young talents to enable them to access the best international professional circuits,” said the statement.
After the recent results of the sports elites of these two nations, this alliance reinforces a willingness to invest in a young audience to give birth to a real Arab golfing force, said the same source.
“Morocco and the United Arab Emirates are two golfing nations that have clubs which meet the best international standards and golfing infrastructure with high-tech equipment. Both countries also have highly qualified human resources specialized in physical, mental and sports training,” the statement added.
