The hotly anticipated inaugural “UAE PL Development Forum” is the first of its kind and the most comprehensive in terms of initiatives, discussions, and visions, which came after four months of preparations, visits, and field studies on ground.

These preparations came with the participation of global companies and think tanks, which worked with the Pro League’s teams to identify the most prominent challenges facing the Pro League’s competitions, not only at the technical level but also at all levels related to professionalism, in terms of marketing, fans and commercial aspects, as well as others factors strengthening competition at various local Pro League tournaments.

These global companies and think tanks have contributed to the development of several European competitions, and have built up great experiences in the field of professional development, competitions, and everything related to them, including factors of attracting fans and developing marketing, commercial and technical matters.

The Forum includes discussion workshops with the participation of experts, representatives of professional clubs, and technical experts. It will showcase everything related to our competitions, including a comprehensive view of the matches, foreign and Emirati players.

The Forum will discuss four main objectives, namely: developing the Pro League competitions, upgrading commercial and technical aspects of the Pro League and clubs, revamping the clubs’ facilities, and encouraging fans to attend matches to make the Pro League’s competitions more interesting with regard to all aspects related to games, namely the return of fans to pitches,  mechanisms, numbers, and quality of matches.

The Forum begins with the opening speech of the MC, followed by an intro video summarising the efforts that preceded the forum, then the speech of Abdulla Naser Al Jneibi, UAE Pro League Chairman, Vice-President of the UAE Football Association, and then the presentation of TFG International, which will discuss the matter of the foreign and Emirati players, as well as, technical benefits.
