H.H. Dr. Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, has issued Emiri Decree No. 80 for 2016, setting up the Sharjah Falconry Club.

The new club aims to conserve and promote the tradition and sport of falconry, build relations with local sports clubs and institutions, promote Sharjah in the UAE and abroad as a destination for falconry, develop legislation for the sport, encourage relevant initiatives to develop the sport and provide a haven for falcons and live preys.

The club may represent the emirate at relevant events, associations, unions and any entity for falconry, as well as conclude agreements with these entities.

According to the decree, the new club will have a head office in the central area of the emirate of Sharjah, while branches can be set up in other cities and areas within the emirate.

The club will be tasked with developing polices to improve the safety of falconers in the emirates, conducting training for involved individuals and promotional campaigns, and sponsoring sports teams, among other responsibilities.

The club's chairman, deputy chairman and the members of the board of directors should be Emiratis and will be named by the Ruler of Sharjah, or anyone representing him.

The club is exempt from all government and customs fees.

The new decree will be published in the official gazette. – Emirates News Agency, WAM -
