The ceremony was also attended by Major-General Ahmed Eid Al Mansouri, Director of the General Department of Emergency and Security Department of the Dubai Police, and Mohammed Abdul Kareem Julia, chairman of the board of directors of Al Nasr Club.

The training course was organised under the supervision of French anti-riots experts.

The ceremony commenced with an exhibition football match. As soon as the players arrived on the field, riots started in the stadium.

The anti-riot team of graduates immediately intervened and managed to handle the matter smoothly without affecting the match.

Several other security situations were also created which the graduates combated showing their skills gained during the programme.
