Sharjah: The Union of Arab National Olympic Committees (UANOC) held its first coordinating meeting with the Arab Sports Associations on Saturday at the Sharjah Women’s Sports Foundation (SWSF) HQ, paving the way for the preparations of the fifth edition of the Arab Women Sports Tournament (AWST), coming to Sharjah in 2020.

Organised by AWST’s Supreme Organising Committee, the meeting was attended by 13 representatives from the said organisations to lay down broadly the project plans for the upcoming edition.

Discussions characterised the shaping of AWST’s technical, strategic and logistical regulations, and ways in which they will integrate efforts with UANOC, and Emirati and Arab sports associations in the year that leads up to the next tournament.

The most important aspects about AWST’s referee committees; its characteristics and selection criteria, ways to ensure the easy and smooth arrival of referees to the UAE, were also discussed.
