Al Ain.. The Past, the Present and the Future:

“A nation with no past is a nation with no present or future.” This is one of the immortal statements of President His Highness Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, may God protect him.

We, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) citizens, are proud of and feel extreme satisfaction at Sheikh Zayed’s statements and maxims, which are used as a light and an approach, prompting us to take full advantage of his adages, aphorisms and words that are regarded as a method of life and landmark for all of us.

The moment he prudently led the UAE and earlier took over as Ruler of Abu Dhabi, we have been witnessing a magnificent movement of civilised development and progress.

Henceforth, the idea came to record the history of the Al Ain Sports Club and gather as much information as possible together with the accomplishments, championships and results achieved by the club.

The history was also to tell the story of the club from the very moment of inception until it was named the leader at the UAE level, though such leadership crossed the borders to Asia.

The history was also to depict the administrative development of the club, the role of club’s management in the comprehensive development of Al Ain team and the UAE’s attention paid to such development and to the youths sector, this being the pillar of the future.

One of the sectors that properly received utmost attention from the UAE President and one of the factors that contributed to building the youths sector was sports, which also witnessed a great development thanks to the limitless support provided to this significant and vital sector.

Since it actually came into existence in 1968 and throughout a process that was full of contributions and achievements, this lofty sports edifice of Al Ain Sports Club has received tremendous support from HH Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Abu Dhabi Crown Prince and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, who is also the Honorary President of the Al Ain Sports Club.

The first fan of the club, Sheikh Khalifa has always supported the UAE sports in general and Al Ain Sports Club in particular and such support began as soon as this lofty sports edifice came into existence until it became an entity of high reputation and a significant element of sports.

Besides, the club’s management had a role to play in boosting its process of development across the history of the club with Zayed’s sons filling the leading posts of the club and providing it with all support, starting from HH Sheikh Sultan Bin Zayed Al Nayan, Deputy Prime Minister, who chaired the board of the club in the 1970s.

Later, HH Lieutenant General Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Chief of Staff of the UAE Armed Forces, took over as president of the club and later as chairman of the council of honour. HH Sheikh Hamdan Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Minister of State for Foreign Affairs joined the list in the presence of Sheikh Mohammed.

Then, Sheikh Hazza Bin Zayed Al Nahyan took over as chairman of the club before he became vice-president of the club and vice-chairman of the council of honour.

In 1990s, His Excellency Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mubarak Al Nahyan in his capacity as chairman of the board and HH Sheikh Abdullah Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Minister of Culture and Information, in his capacity as vice-chairman played a tangible role in ensuring continuous development of the club.

After forming Al Ain Council of Honour, the club witnessed an administrative boom and a tremendous development and a number of the club’s loyal people undertook the task of managing the club to contribute to its development and progress.

Throughout this process of development, Al Ain Sports Club with its prominent fans was in the lead among the UAE clubs as the biggest Gulf, Arab and Asian club.

Best Wishes to Al Ain Fans
