The 4th FIFCO World Corporate Champions Cup will commence on Friday, November 4, 2022, in the evening in the stadiums of Dubai Sports City.
The International Federation of Corporate Football (FIFCO) and Dubai Sports Council are working together to organize the three-day Championship, which will be held in Dubai for the second year in a row and end on November 6, 2022.
Sixteen teams from different continents will compete in the Championship, which will follow the rules for five-a-side football tournaments. These teams include: three from the United Arab Emirates, two from Monaco, Bangladesh, India, Lebanon, Mali, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, Tunisia, two from Oman, and one each from the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Switzerland. Teams that are taking part will be divided into four groups.
Teams competing in this Championship qualified after winning the corporate qualifying stage contested by each nation. The championship’s two most recent iterations, which were held in Dubai in 2021 and Monaco in 2019, respectively, were won by the Iranian Team, while the 2018 competition was hosted in Montreal, Canada, and was won by the Mexico Team.
On Thursday, November 3, 2022, at 9:00 p.m. in the Sheraton Mall of the Emirates Hotel, Dubai will also host the General Assembly of the International Federation of Corporate Football. Twenty Member States will attend in person, and the remaining Member States will participate via video conferencing.
“The Emirate of Dubai has been chosen to host the 4th edition of the FIFCO World Corporate Champions Cup as per a unanimous request from the members of the General Assembly of the International Federation of Corporate Football.
This is due to the city’s well-established infrastructure & developed facilities, in addition to its capacity to host top world championships, as well as the availability of malls & entertainment centers and simple access to the city through airports.
The meetings of the General Assembly must take place in Dubai, according to all members. It is anticipated that the current Championship will have exceptional success,” according to Mr. Albert Zbily, the President of the International Federation of Corporate Football.
