AMMONNEWS - His Royal Highness Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein, president of the Jordan Football Association (JFA), Monday called for holding a series of meetings to discuss proposals for the return of football activity and other key issues related to the sport.

Prince Ali was speaking during a virtual meeting of the JFA Executive Committee, which he chaired Sunday evening, to look into proposals for the gradual return of football activity in the coming period with the approval of the relevant authorities, and discuss the negative aspects, mainly financial damage, that the local sport incurred after it came to a halt due to the coronavirus pandemic.

His Highness urged the executive body to meet periodically to discuss "all developments and take decisions that are in the interest of the game," while strengthening channels of communication with the various sides of the sport, starting with a meeting of football club heads to seek different opinions on the major issues related to Jordanian football and to arrange a meeting with the players for their insights.

Prince Ali called on the JFA officials to follow up on the various measures current being taken by the various world football federations to deal with the pandemic, and the endeavours to resume football activity and mitigate the damage from the suspension of competitions, in order to benefit locally from the most successful procedures.
