Crowds of work­ers and pub­lic at large, have been gath­er­ing at the sports ields near the Shar­jah Na­tional Park, op­po­site the Shar­jah In­ter­na­tional Air­port, to fol­low the sports com­pe­ti­tions there. Held ev­ery Fri­day from now un­til the end of March from 8am to 11am and from 3pm to 6pm, the Fes­ti­val is be­com­ing a sports land­mark in Shar­jah.

“In the sec­ond edi­tion of the Fes­ti­val, we have sought to raise the level of com­pe­ti­tion be­tween the teams. Our aim is to of­fer an op­por­tu­nity for all pub­lic and pri­vate sec­tors to par­tic­i­pate in var­ied ac­tiv­i­ties and pro­mote co­he­sion and col­lab­o­ra­tion among work­ers and em­ploy­ers. This will strengthen re­la­tion­ships and build bridges of trust; which sports has al­ways suc­ceeded to achieve among com­mu­ni­ties. The Fes­ti­val this year has been suc­cess­ful in spread­ing pos­i­tiv­ity, hap­pi­ness healthy life and tol­er­ance among the var­i­ous seg­ments of work­ers. This co­in­cide with the Year of Tol­er­ance the UAE has de­clared this year”, said Al Qaseer.

The Labour Sports Fes­ti­val is serv­ing the core ob­jec­tives of the LSDA, which strives to pro­vide all forms of sup­port to em­ploy­ers and work­ers, as sports and ed­u­ca­tional ac­tiv­i­ties con­trib­ute to cre­at­ing a favourable en­vi­ron­ment for im­prov­ing the per­for­mance of the emi­rate’s com­mer­cial and in­dus­trial sec­tors.

The sec­ond edi­tion of the Fes­ti­val is wit­ness­ing a re­mark­able turnout from gov­ern­ment and pri­vate sec­tors.
