Qatar intends to become a Member of FISU



DOHA - During his visit in Qatar for the FIBA 3x3 All Stars, Leonz Eder also paid a visit to Qatar University where he met with Khalid Mohammed Al-Khanji, Vice-President for Student Affairs, and Abdulla Al-Shandoor Al-Yafei, Associate Vice-President for Student Life and Services and HoD of the Qatar delegation at the 2015 Summer Universiade in Gwangju, Korea. He encouraged the Qatar academic authorities to become a member of FISU. According to them it’s a sincere desire of Qatar to apply for the FISU membership, and the necessary administrative steps for this procedure have already started. Following the example of Oman, Qatar will establish a Committee for University Sports which will be recognized by the Qatar Olympic Committee.
