The International Federation for Falconry Sports and Racing (IFFSR) has unveiled an impressive roster of participants for the inaugural edition of the International Federation for Falconry Sports and Racing Cup.

In this exciting event, international teams will showcase their talents as they compete head-to-head on a challenging 400-meter course.

Slated for 14 December, the event will feature the participation of both founding and sports members of the International Federation.

The announcement about the participating teams for the competition is aligned with the directives of Sheikh Ahmed bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Second Deputy Ruler of Dubai and President of IFFSR, who approved plans for staging the tournament earlier this year to further raise the profile of falconry globally and set the stage for it to spread wings and build a massive following cutting across international borders and age groups.

International teams battling it out for the grand prize include the Heritage Sport Committee Team from Bahrain, Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Village Team from Kuwait, Al-Gannas Qatari Society Team from Qatar, Morocco Falconry Association Team from Morocco, Algeria National Association of Falconry Team from Algeria, Al Qannas Association Team from Egypt, the Argentine Falconry Association Team from Argentina, National Union of Hunters and Falconers from Italy, Southern Falconry Association from Spain, the Uzbekistan Falconry Association and Tugan Falconry Club teams from Uzbekistan, Kilomero Association team from Tanzania, Salbuurun team from Kyrgyzstan, Greek Falconry Association Team from Greece, Capital Falconry Academy of Beijing Team from China, and the UAE Falcons Federation team.

Rashid bin Markhan, IFFSR Secretary-General, confirmed the receipt of entries from the international teams following the submission of documents required for the registration of teams. "Entries had been accepted for 30 days following the official announcement by Sheikh Ahmed bin Mohammed. Falcons due to participate in the tournament will be checked and approved by experts. A day before the tournament opens, the competing birds will be put through a process wherein electronic shuffling will determine who they ultimately team up with," Bin Mirkhan added.
