The Fazza Championship for Falconry – ‘Al Hay' (Live Prey), organised and supervised by the Hamdan bin Mohammed Heritage Centre, HHC, kicks off tomorrow, Thursday February 18th, with participants competing in two categories – ‘Shaheen Wahsh Farkh' and ‘Tibah Wahash Farkh.' Meticulous preparations have now been completed and it is expected that around 700 participants will be attending this three-day competition in the Seeh Al Dahl area of Dubai.

The first day of the event is dedicated to participants from Dubai and the Northern Emirates, with the weekend set aside for GCC nationals and Emirati falconers from Abu Dhabi, Al Ain and the Western Region on Friday and Saturday respectively.

This tournament regularly attracts the finest species of falcon and the most skilled falconers when it comes to hunting, which was one of the means of livelihood across the Arabian Gulf in times gone by.

Meanwhile, the organising committee has pledged to provide all of the necessary requirements for the assembled contestants, from wireless tracking devices, bird feed and the allocation of sufficient time from one falconer to another to improve performance levels overall. – Emirates News Agency, WAM -
