Sharjah won the Emirates Handball Cup for men for the fifth time, in the first tournaments of the 2020-2021 season, after leading the final round with 4 points, despite losing to Shabab Al-Ahly 24-25, this evening, at Rashid Bin Hamdan Hall in Al-Nasr Club, and the first half ended with youth progressing Al-Ahly 13-12, to lead Sharjah to the top with 4 points, with goal difference from Al-Ain Al-Thani and Shabab Al-Ahly III.
The confrontation was strong between the two teams; Given the chances of each team winning the cup, and Al-Ahly’s youth excelled in many periods in the match, Sharjah’s chances were higher to win the title; Because there is more than one chance, including winning, drawing and losing by 11 goals.
The coronation ceremony was attended by Nabil Ashour, Chairman of the Hand Union, Ali Salem Al Midfa, Chairman of the Sharjah Club, Nasser Al Hammadi, Secretary General of the Hand Union, Mohammed Al-Hussan, a member of the Board of Directors of the Sharjah Club, Chairman of the Group Games Department, and a number of members of the Federation. Al-Ahly youth left the hall without receiving the third-place medals, especially since the club objected to the union’s decision to convert its victory into a loss in front of Al-Ain, due to a technical error and the participation of a resident player more than the allowed number.
The match was moderated by Muhammad Nasser and Nabil Khamis, and Ismail Salem and Rawda Al-Mansouri were on the table, and the observer Abdullah Khamis was on the table.
