These competitions offer an authentic window to the past while serving as a bridge linking the future.


The 20th season of Fazza Heritage Championships will take place from December to March across Dubai, Sharjah and Ajman, the Hamdan Bin Mohammed Heritage Centre (HHC) has announced.

"We will be welcoming another year of intense competitions deeply rooted on Emirati culture and traditions. These competitions offer an authentic window to the past while serving as a bridge linking the future," said Souad Ibrahim Darwish, HHC Director of Championships.

"This season, we are organising 14 main tournaments and events, and we have set preliminary schedules for each tournament, hoping the weather will not affect and postpone any of the listed competitions," she noted.

The Fazza Heritage Championships, held under the directive of Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Dubai Executive Council, has become an enduring legacy attracting nationals, expatriates, Arabs in the region and competitors from around the world competing in diverse heritage sports that include falconry, Saktoun rifle shooting, camel marathon, freediving and Saluki racing.
