Sharjah Commerce and Tourism Development Authority sponsors the 4th International Open Athletics Meeting for Handicapped which is being hosted by Al Thiqa Club in Sharjah on 27th and 28th February, 2014.

Sharjah boasts a truly diverse and colorful calendar of events ranging from heritage and culture to business and sports and Sharjah Commerce and Tourism Development Authority is keen to support and encourage many of such activities, said Khalid Jasim Al Midfa.

“This is an expression of the SCTDA’s commitment to society. Sharjah is sparing no effort to support the physically challenged through a number of associations and clubs that help and engage people with special needs in the UAE society,” Al Midfa emphasised.

He said that Sharjah is an ideal destination for the organization of a number of tournaments and sporting events in the region and the world, adding to the Emirate’s reputation as the host of the World Championship Formula 1 Powerboat — Sharjah Grand Prix, which is organized by the Authority in December every year and attracts tens of thousands of spectators.

“Sharjah is a truly global destination with a year-long calendar of various festivals, events and activities that keep residents and visitors to the Emirate creatively engaged all through the year,” added Al Midfa.
