Areej Ahmed Al Hammadi, a player for the UAE women's football team and Abu Dhabi Club, expressed her pride in the UAE's hosting of "Expo Dubai 2020," which confirms international confidence in the capabilities of the UAE and Dubai in particular to host major international forums.
She stressed that Dubai will fascinate the world in an unprecedented manner, as it is has, because of its enormous capabilities in organizing. The event will be unique…
The national team midfielder, who entered the Guinness Book of Records after setting a record as the best footballer with most “hotstepper” ball control tricks in one minute, added: “I feel proud to be part of this great global event, as I work as Senior Project Manager in the creative studio of Expo 2020 Dubai.
“This gives me pleasure to be closely following the tremendous preparations that are taking place, and I am equally happy with the participation of the country’s youth of both sexes in the organization that Dubai will dazzle the world with.
“Imagine the amount of work and achievement here, these are wonderful and amazing moments as we see Dubai completely ready in all respects to launch a unique event that will bring the world together in our country, and this is not strange for the Emirates in general and Dubai in particular, which receives millions of visitors throughout the year.”
The player, who made her sports debut in Al Wahda Club before moving and settling in the ranks of the Abu Dhabi Club, continued: “During my participation with the national team in the Asian Women’s Cup, and in the West Asian Championship with Abu Dhabi Club, the players of the participating countries were asking about “Expo 2020 Dubai” and the extent of our preparations for it.
“I was assuring them that our country does not know the impossible, and Dubai is working with the idea of number 1, which was taken by our wise leadership and our rational government as an approach to our homeland in all aspects of life, so success will be our ally and we will present the world with an amazing civilized image in this hosting, which we are confident will be unprecedented.
