“As we live in the moments in which the “Boss” crowned with their the 14th title of the Pro League, we also remember the foundation phase. Therefore, we do enjoy the feelings of honor and pride in this entity. This lofty sports entity was established to be big per crystal-clear goals and reflect the vision of the founder of this great edifice, Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, “may God rest his soul in peace.” The first Ainawi knew well this based on his wisdom and vision,” His Excellency Mohammed bin Thaloub Al Deri, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Al Ain Club Investment Company, stated in a press statement following Al Ain Team was officially crowned the ADNOC Prof League title.

Mr. Chairman confirmed that the decisions of His Highness Sheikh Hazza bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Vice Chairman of the Executive Council of Abu Dhabi, First Vice President of the Club, First Vice President of the Honorary Council, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Al Ain Sports and Cultural Club, to appoint His Highness Sheikh Sultan bin Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan as the Vice-Chairman of the Board of Directors of Al Ain Sports and Cultural Club, Chairman of the Executive Committee, and the formation of the Executive Committee establishes a vital milestone in the history of the Club.

He stressed that the Al Ain Club continues to follow a straightforward approach and a successful strategy laid out by His Highness Hazza bin Zayed. This has always led the Club to achieve its desired goals locally and internationally.

The Chairman of Al Ain Club Investment Company pointed out that the patronage, support, and great attention of His Highness Sheikh Hazza bin Zayed Al Nahyan to the Club and his trust in the Club’s Board Of Directors and its affiliates motivated all the Club’s members and furnished all the success grounds to be honored on coronation podiums.

He indicated: “Sheikh Hazza is the founder of the success strategy of one of the largest sports entities in the Asian continent.”

He added: “His Highness Sheikh Sultan bin Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan is known for his brilliant management philosophy. His name has been associated with great successes in several fields, especially sports. Moreover, his vision of work is based on the principle of strategic planning and being an outstanding and loving leader. This is the norm here in the Ainawi house.”

Bin Thaloub hailed Sheikh Hamdan’s achievements, saying: “It is sufficient that His Highness made a qualitative leap in the concept of digital media through the pioneering contributions adopted by the UAE Leader Electronic Multimedia Foundation in supporting the club’s ambitions through the 2003 AFC Champions League when he was head of that institution at the time.”

The Chairman of Al Ain Club Investment Company praised the critical role played by Al Ain Football Club Company, chaired by Dr. Matar Al Darmaki. He also commended the efforts exerted by the administrative and technical teams of the first team.

“They adopted a wonderful professional style by the Ukrainian coach Sergiy Rebrov, who made the difference with the players only in one season. It was not easy! This season was full of challenges, but the stars of the “Boss” were up to the challenge and deserved to be on the coronation podium at the end of the season,” he said.

H.E. Mohammed bin Thaloub Al Deri expressed his deep appreciation to the Club’s partners and official sponsors, who are considered partners in this achievement through their keenness to adopt the best practices to support the team and the Al Ain fans.

“Partners and sponsors spare no effort to support the team and its fans through specific initiatives that have been remarkably accepted by the fans of this great Club and all its members. Therefore, the next season will certainly witness greater cooperation and better interaction than the current one because the Ainawis’ ambitions in each season are greater than the previous one,” he said.

He concluded his statement by hailing the support of the Ainawi fans to achieve the Club’s aspirations from the beginning of the season until the end, which is not unusual for the Ainawi Nation, the primary motive for the Club’s achievements throughout its excellent football history.
