In preparation for this year’s RSF, members of the organising committee will hold technical meetings from Sunday to Tuesday next week with the teams taking part.

At the technical meetings, participants will be briefed on the competitions’ rules and guidelines.

A draw will be held for each tournament to determine the teams competing in the group stages and final schedule of matches.

Thanks to a carefully designed programme featuring a range of popular sports, members of the local community in Qatar will have ample opportunity to get involved and stay active during the Holy Month of Ramadan, fulfilling one of AZF’s core objectives which is to promote healthy and active lifestyle.

The festival is an excellent example of the year-round programme of activities AZF hosts at its world-class facilities, which cater for all members of the community.

Thanks to this programme, Aspire Zone has become one of Qatar’s most popular destinations, where residents take part in sporting and cultural activities.
