The UAE pro league has rolled out a 10-day football challenge for you to get involved in.
The UAE Pro League (UAEPL) is joining forces with state institutions to help try limit the impact of the coronavirus. It has launched a new social responsibility initiative titled ‘#SkillDonation’, to support the Fund of the United Arab Emirates: Homeland of Humanity, dedicated to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.
#SkillDonation is a ten-day long football challenge, where fans film videos of them juggling with the ball ten times and post it on social media, tagging the UAEPL’s account @AGLeague on social media platforms.
The UAEPL will contribute a donation for each video posted online.
The UAEPL has called on its followers to take part in this humanitarian initiative and contacted the professional clubs to share the challenge with its affiliates and to contribute to The Fund of the United Arab Emirates: Homeland of Humanity.
UAE Pro League Chairman Abdulla Naser Al Junaibi stressed the importance of the UAEPL’s participation in social initiatives taking place in the country:
“These initiatives show the humanitarian side of football,” he said. “It is not just a game, but a noble message. Involving football fans of all ages and nationalities in humanitarian work embodies the spirit of solidarity between the government’s initiatives and people’s responses to them to achieve their objectives.”
“We organise this initiative in collaboration with the Emirates Red Crescent. It is aimed to emphasise the importance of following the authorities’ instructions and staying at home,” he added.
