Al Jazira Invites Fans to be Part of the Biggest Ever Team Talk

News
Abu Dhabi: Aug. 30, 2020
 
The wait for the return of professional football in the UAE is almost over, with the 2020-21 season scheduled to kick-off in early September. To mark the occasion, Al Jazira Club is launching an innovative campaign to inspire fans and unite the wider Abu Dhabi community through the power of football. 
 
As part of the Club’s #ItIsTime campaign, everyone across Abu Dhabi is invited to take part in the ‘biggest ever team talk’ in the Club’s history, ahead of its opening fixtures. Recognising that the resumption of domestic competition stands for a lot more this season, the Club wants everyone from fans to front-line-workers to send in messages on social media, describing what this moment means to them and what they want the squad to play for this season. 
 
Al Jazira FC get their new season underway away against Ittihad Kalba on September 3 as part of the Arabian Gulf Cup, and they will kick off the Arabian Gulf League with a visit to the Al Maktoum stadium to face Al Nasr on September 11 before returning to the Mohammed bin Zayed stadium for a clash against Al Dhafra on September 18.  With fixtures currently played behind closed doors, the Club hopes that messages from the community, which will be shown to the players ahead of kick-off, will provide added inspiration to the team after such a lengthy lay-off. 
 
“In everything we do at Al Jazira Club, we strive to bring Abu Dhabi’s community together through a shared love of sport,” commented Mr. Ali Youssif Al Hammadi, the Club’s acting Group Chief Executive Officer. “This purpose has never felt more important, given all the challenges that the COVID-19 pandemic has caused. For us, the start of the season is a bigger story than just football and we are launching this #ItIsTime campaign to help amplify what this moment represents to our community. 
 
“It is time to remember those who have been impacted by recent events, it is time to continue to recognise and applaud the incredible efforts of front-line staff in the on-going fight against the pandemic, it is time to thank everyone who has played a part in enabling the safe return of sporting competitions and it is time to get behind the team on a scale we haven’t seen before.”
 
To add extra incentive, the Al Jazira FC 1st Team squad will select their favourite #ItIsTime message and reward this lucky supporter with a range of unique experiences and exclusive prize. 
 
“It is always about togetherness here in Al Jazira,” says First Team Manager Marcel Keizer. “It’s a principle we talk about in every training session, and we want fans and followers to be with us every step of the way. We play for more than the Club this season, we play for Abu Dhabi and for everyone who is helping to keep this community safe.” 
 
Supporters can share their messages of support online using the club’s official social media channels @AlJazira_uae_EN or using the hashtag #ItIsTime. Messages will be shown to the team ahead of the opening AGL game against Al Nasr, with the first team squad selecting a winning message to win the VIP experience and match-day ball from the home game against Al Dhafra on Friday 18 September.
