A group of HCT-Fujairah Women’s campus (FJW) students were warmly welcomed by Fujairah Sports Club on recent field trip. The party of around 25 students, led by Sport Coordinator Marilyn Gilyana were given unprecedented access to stadium and facilities used by the current team coached by the legendary Argentinian footballer Diego Maradona.
The visit included the opportunity to ask questions to Mr Humaid Al Yammahi (Vice president of the club board) as well as explore the possibility of future collaborations between the college and the club, with a particular view to create female teams and training opportunities.
The students benefitted greatly from the first hand opportunity to gain further knowledge about the local club and learn more about the sports offered currently.
The visit ended with both parties agreeing to have potentials for the women’s sport teams and another visit to attend a training session of the Fujairah Football team.
