Qatar, Abu Dhabi and Dubai: New centre of the sporting world? By Ben Smith BBC Sport Where once, sport looked west for investment and inspiration, now it looks east. The oil-rich billionaires of the Gulf have planted a flag at the heart of the sporting landscape in recent years. They have invested their inconceivable wealth across an array of sports into all corners of the world and now they are using their influence to bring sport to the region, as a global statement of their ambition. Dubai has one billionaire per 200,000 people Three Gulf states are at the heart of this extraordinary revolution: Qatar, Abu Dhabi and Dubai. In Dubai alone, you will find one billionaire in every 200,000 people. In Abu Dhabi, a rival state in the United Arab Emirates, the figures are just as extraordinary. It is in the process of building the jaw-dropping Louvre Abu Dhabi, having paid the world-famous Paris museum more than £400m just to use the name. While in Qatar, more than 14% of households have at least £1m of pri ...
ACC Championship 2014 Called Off The Asian Cricket Council (ACC) is set to call off the ACC Championship which has been slated for December 7-14 in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The ACC Championship – featuring the top four teams from the ACC Premier League -- is a two- day tournament which was going to be introduced for the first time by the regional cricket governing body. Nepal had finished third in the ACC Premier League, held in Malaysia from May 1-7 this year, won by Afghanistan. UAE had finished second while Oman ended up fourth. The ACC is yet to make any official confirmation about the cancellation but a source said that the unavailability of Afghanistan and the UAE has forced them to call off the tournament. Afghanistan and UAE are currently undergoing the ICC High Performance Programme for the 2015 World Cup beginning from February in Australia and New Zealand. Both teams have also confirmed their unavailability for a tour of Sri Lanka in November where the island country had initially plan ...

‘New Iniesta’ Musa Yahaya To Join Up With Tottenham. The 16-year-old Nigeria winger Musa Yahaya is to join up with Tottenham early next week for pre-season training. Yahaya had agreed a pre-contract agreement with Tottenham earlier this year and then went on loan with Celta Vigo. Musa Yahaya who will be 17 in December was the star player for the Nigeria team at the FIFA Under-17 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates last year. He scored 3 goals as Nigeria progressed to the Final where they defeated Mexico to win the trophy for a record fourth time. Yahaya has since been called into the Nigeria Under-20 squad when he scored in a recent game against Tanzania. He’s an exciting prospect and naturally very excited with this opportunity, which will most certainly enhance his rising profile. Last February, the Metro reported that Tottenham had fought off the challenge from leading clubs across Europe, including Barcelona, Arsenal and Manchester City, to sign Musa Yohaya on a pre-contract agreement. In the ...

Fabio keen on Bafana - Moyes out as Manuel Jose joins race 2014-06-11 | Nkareng Matshe ITALY's Fabio Cannavaro has become the latest name to apply for the Bafana Bafana coaching post, as it emerged yesterday that David Moyes had decided to pull out of the race to replace Gordon Igesund. Representatives of Cannavaro, who captained Italy to World Cup triumph in 2006, sent through an inquiry about the post, which became vacant last week after the SA Football Association confirmed Igesund's contract, which expires in August, would not be renewed. But the 40-year-old, who retired in 2011 following a spell with United Arab Emirates club Al-Ahli, is a novice in the coaching world, having had a single spell as an assistant at the self-same Dubai side last year. His record as a player is great, however, as he has won the World Cup with the Azzurri, and two La Liga titles with Real Madrid. Cannavaro was a Ballon d'Or winner in 2006. Whether Bafana, who've plunged into an abyss, require the services of a coaching n ...
Aiden Markram was named the CSA Under-19 Cricketer of the Year at the sixth annual Cricket South Africa (CSA) Breakfast Awards in association with KFC. The ceremony, where the stars of amateur cricketed are honoured, was held at the Killarney Country Club in Johannesburg on Wednesday.   The Awards Breakfast commemorates the accomplishments of the flourishing talent in the country as CSA continues to drive its vision of making cricket a truly national sport of winners and accessible to all.   Markram was one of the many stars in the Coca-Cola SA U19 squad that won the ICC U19 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates earlier this year. He was the deserving Player of the Tournament where the Baby Proteas (as they have been dubbed) were unbeaten throughout and was also the captain that led the squad to its historic victory. He beat out fellow nominees Yaseen Valli, who scored second highest runs of 240 and took the 11 wickets, second only to the third nominee, Kagiso Rabada, who took 14/144.   Markram scored ...
Australia admit to spin weakness Plans are in place to help Lehmann's charges solve the mysteries of world cricket's trickiest tweakers. As Australia’s fitness and conditioning gurus set about ensuring the national men’s team is in peak shape for the gruelling two-year playing schedule that lies ahead, strategies are being put in place to counter the mystery weapon that looms as the team’s biggest technical challenge. With next October’s two-Test series against Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates to be followed by four Tests against India (in Australia) and then the ICC World Cup on home soil, Australia’s batsmen face a steady and distinctly unfamiliar diet of mystery spin. The first course will be served up by Pakistan’s Saeed Ajmal, whose indecipherable doosra destroyed England’s batting in their three-Test series in the UAE in 2012 when he pocketed 24 wickets at less than 15 runs apiece. Then, the Australians are likely to run into India’s latest spin wizard, Ravichandran Ashwin, whose ...

Arsenal transfer news: Nigerian wonderkids battle; £28m bid for Draxler readiedAll the latest news and gossip from The Emirates this evening. Arsenal chief scout Steve Rowley has been keeping tabs on a number of talented homegrown English players in the Championship recently. Former Arsenal man named La Liga POTM Arsene Wenger has, in recent years, taken a liking to signing top British talent - with the likes of Aaron Ramsey, Carl Jenkinson and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain all arriving from the Football League in recent years. On this occasion it was Reading goalkeeper Alex McCarthy and Charlton Athletic utility man Jordan Cousins who were being watched as Wenger looks to improve the depth of his squad. Arsenal are reportedly in a battle with Portuguese outfit Benfica for two outstanding Nigerian talents. Musa Yahaya and Chidera Ezeh were two of the young stars who shined for the Super Eaglets at the under-17 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates this summer - which they won. The winger and striker are on bot ...
The Under 19 Cricket World Cup will kick off in the UAE United Arab Emirates on February 14th. The West Indies were placed in Group C with South Africa, Zimbabwe and Canada and are expected to play on the opening day of the tournament.
I see there has been a bit of confusion pertaining next year ICC T20 world cup - fair enough confusion is part of cricket these days. I will try to simplify it now, The men's World Cup (By the way they run concurently with the ladies'), So the men's world cup consists of 16 teams, get that one right - 16 teams. Automatic qualification for the Test playing nations- West Indies, India, Bangladesh, Australia, England, South Africa, Pakistan, Zimbabwe, Sri Lanka and New Zealand. Then there is the 6 teams from the associates that played the qualifiers (The final which is on today) - Ireland, Afganistan, Netherlands, Hong Kong, Nepal and United Arab Emirates. So in total we have 16 teams already qualified for the world cup. So how it will work out... (The confusion part) There is the first round (Please note its not a qualifier to the world cup, its already the world cup). The 1st round will have the 2 'strongest' Test playing nations (Zimbabwe and Bangladesh) and the 6 associate teams that played qualifiers. B ...
Golden Eaglets’ victory: What next? SIR: Give it to them; the Nigeria U-17 team are the champions of the world. What a sight to behold in United Arab Emirates. They took the world to the cleaners in spectacular and enviable manner. This is what makes a champion. The revelation of the 2013 U-17 World Cup is the Nigerian team. They are now the most successful team in the age grade competition (winning four times-1985, 1993, 2007 and 2013), one more than Brazil. This is a tournament Nigerians would not want to forget in a hurry. Talk of the defence splitting passes of Musa Yahaya. What of the power packed crosses from the boots of the captain-Musa Mohammed? Or his curling free kick which only Messi , Ronaldo, Okocha and Ronaldinho display on the field of play. How about the player of the tournament? Good passer and goal poacher; the revelation of the tournament-Kelechi Iheanacho. Not forgetting Isaac Success. If not for injuries, we all know what he can do. Not to forget the lanky striker, Taiwo Awoniyi an ...
IHEANACHO NEEDS TO BE PROPERLY GUIDED. The FIFA Under-17 World Cup has come to an end and once again has produced a few stars which the Premier League will be looking to snap up including the biggest star of all. There is no doubt that Nigeria deserved their victory at the competition, as a team containing a 14-year-old Chelsea prospect in the form of Habib Makanjuola, were crowned champions in the United Arab Emirates. And there was little doubt who the star of the competition was - Kelechi Iheanacho. The 17-year-old was awarded the Golden Ball for his performances - following in the footsteps of Cesc Fabregas and Toni Kroos. No wonder why when you consider his vital statistics. He scored six goals in seven games, also providing seven assists - a truly imposing record you must agree. Now it has been confirmed that Premier League teams such as Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United are tracking his progress - in particular Arsenal. Iheanacho is clearly a massive prospect - and Nigerian fans certainly hope ...

Oparaku Wants Wing-play For Eaglets Japan ’93 FIFA U-17 World Cup-winning Golden Eaglets right-wing-back, Mobil Oparaku has charged the current squad of Nigeria’s cadet National Team to return to wing play for today’s quarter-final clash against Uruguay at the ongoing championship in United Arab Emirates. The Eaglets will from 5pm today confront the South Americans for a place in the semi-finals of the biennial football showpiece at the 10,877 capacity Sharjah Stadium and the 1993 winner, who went on to star for the Super Eagles at France ’98 World Cup, after winning gold with Dream Team 1 at Atlanta ’96 Olympics, is enthusiastic about victory for Coach Manu Garba’s lads. Oparaku admitted that Eaglets have shown class in their four matches played so far in the championship, but insisted that the side must retrace their foot path to the wing which is the mainstay and traditional pattern of every Nigerian side. “Symbolically, we’re called Eagles and eagle is a bird noted for its strength wit ...
Afghanistan earns place in Cricket World Cup Friday, 10.04.2013, 06:14pm (GMT) The players danced in unison in front of their jubilant fans, and ran across the pitch holding a giant Afghan flag. A thousand miles away in Kabul, the same flag waved everywhere among a sea of people celebrating a rare sporting triumph. War-weary Afghanistan reached its first Cricket World Cup on Friday by beating Kenya in the last match of a qualifying tournament, sparking scenes off mass jubilation across the country. The team, made up mainly of players who grew up playing the sport in refugee camps in Pakistan, beat Kenya by seven wickets in a dominating performance in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates. "This is a big day in my life," allrounder Mohammad Nabi said. "It's a gift to a young (Afghan) generation." In Kabul, more than a thousand fans had gathered to watch the game on a giant screen, and the victory sent cheering Afghans out into the streets to celebrate. Afghanistan edged UAE for the second automatic qualifying spot ...
Cricket South Africa (CSA) launched its campaign this week to win next year’s edition of the ICC under-19 World Cup to be held in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.   A four-day training camp is currently under way at the CSA High Performance Centre at the University of Pretoria Sports Complex for a select squad of 30 players. It started on Thursday and will run until Sunday morning.   The camp is being directed by the Head Coach of the under-19 team, Ray Jennings, and covers all aspects of the preparation for a major tournament.   “We are in the happy position that eight of the players, including Player of the Series Clyde Fortuin, took part in last season’s 5-0 series win over their England counterparts, so there is already a healthy amount of international experience in the group,” commented CSA Manager: Youth Cricket, Niels Momberg.   “We have twice finished runners-up in the under-19 World Cup in 2002 and 2008 and the time has now arrived to bring the trophy home.”   At the conclusio ...
Soccer, politics at play in Iran-Qatar qualifier United Arab Emirates (AP) — In a match with political overtones, Iran plays Qatar in a World Cup qualifier Tuesday that both nations need to win to maintain hope of reaching next year’s tournament in Brazil. The countries have been at odds, most recently over Syria. It is unlikely that Qatar – where political dissent is prohibited- will allow protests to spill into the stadium. “As much as people try to say sport is neutral, you can never separate sports and politics,” said Mustafa Alani, an analyst at the Gulf Research Center in Geneva. “Athletes are representing a country. This is, by nature, a political act. The history of sports is full of political backstories: U.S. vs. the Soviet Union, Israel being shunned by many Muslim countries and, to add to the list, Iran and its rivals in the Gulf.” Amir Hosein Hoseini, a spokesman for Iran’s soccer federation, called the match with Qatar “very sensitive” and complained that Iranian reporter ...
Arsenal poised to be subjected to £1.5bn takeover bid from Middle East consortium within the next few weeks The world’s biggest ever bid for a football club, dwarfing the £800 million paid by the Glazers for Manchester United, will be backed by funds from Qatar and the United Arab Emirates. The group do not want their identities made public yet but a bid source told Telegraph Sport the intention is to buy out Arsenal ’s American owner, Stan Kroenke, whose perceived weak stewardship of the club has also been called into question by frustrated supporter groups. The cash offer, which is more than twice the amount at which Arsenal were valued two years ago, will be for 100 per cent of the club, and if successful would wipe out debts thatstand at around £250million according to the last full year’s financial results. According to a bid source, there would be substantial transfer funds made available to transform the clubinto a major force in European and world football. There would also be a pledge to ...
/Japan shock Spain, favourites Brazil win\ Manchester, Jul 27 (bdnews24.com/Reuters) - Japan produced the first upset of the Olympic Games when they beat potential gold medallists Spain 1-0 while favourites Brazil survived a scare before beating Egypt 3-2 on the opening day of the men's football competition on Thursday. Hosts Britain, making their first appearance at the Games for 52 years, were denied a win in front of a 72,000 crowd at Old Trafford when Senegal scored a late equaliser in a 1-1 draw. Uruguay, back in the Games after an 84-year absence, came from behind to beat a lively United Arab Emirates side 2-1 in the earlier game at Old Trafford. On a day when all 16 teams were in action, there was also a win for Belarus, playing in their first major international tournament, beating New Zealand 1-0 at Coventry. The real upset though was at Hampden Park where Japan stunned Spain, looking to become the first country to hold the World Cup, European crown and Olympic title at the same time. The Spaniar ...
Maradona sacked by Dubai club (CNN) -- Argentine soccer legend Diego Maradona has been sacked by United Arab Emirates club Al-Wasl after only 14 months in charge. The 1986 World Cup winner arrived in Dubai on a lucrative contract in May 2011, but could only manage to take Al-Wasl to eighth place in the 12-team UAE Pro-League -- which resulted in the club's board resigning. The 51-year-old, who coached Argentina at the 2010 World Cup, was not given the chance to continue his two-year tenure by the new board. "Following a meeting held by the board of directors of Al Wasl Football Company held today to evaluate the technical staff of Al Wasl Football Team ... it was decided to terminate the services of coach Diego Maradona and his technical staff," the club said in a statement on Tuesday. Al-Wasl has won the UAE league title seven times, but not since 2007. Under Maradona, the club won just seven of 22 league games and lost in the quarterfinals of the UAE President's Cup and the final of the Gulf Clubs Champ ...

Did you know that: Michael Schumacher, the 7 time World F1 Champion was born 3 January 1969 in Bahrain, this is why the Bahrain government is organizing this event in Bahrain. Eldrick Tont "Tiger" Woods, formerly the World n. 1, was born December 30, 1975, in Dubai, and the is the reason that the most expensive golf called the Desert Classic is organized in Dubai. And now he is moving this race to Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, because his grand father was born there. 3.Edson Arantes do Nascimento, known as Pelé, the best football player of all time was born October 21 1940 in Qatar, and he brought finally the World Cup to Qatar for 2022.
