The basketball team hopes to reach the golden square today in the Arab Championship, which will be held at Al Nasr Hall in Dubai, when it faces its Tunisian counterpart at eight in the evening.

"White Basketball" hopes to lead the first group and grab the direct qualification card at the end of the preliminary round, as the leader of each group qualifies directly to the round of four.

The round will begin at 4:00 pm with Jordan's meeting with Libya, while the Lebanon-Algeria dialogue will be at the top of the second group.

The team is armed with the experiences of its technical director, Dr. Mounir Ben Habib, and his knowledge of the weaknesses of many influential Tunisian players, coming from the Monastir Union, after he led them last April to the final of the African Champions, before losing to Zamalek «76-66». 85-81, while Tunisia beat Libya 64-63.

With the slogan of the lead, the Algerian and Lebanese teams enter their meeting with equal chances, after both of them won over Somalia, “112-67” for Algeria in the opening round, and “115-77” for Lebanon in the second round.

Tomorrow, all teams are subject to a rest, and the tournament will be completed on Saturday in the quarter-finals.

On the other hand, the Emirates Corporation for Central Cooling Systems "Empower" announced its golden sponsorship of the championship.

Ahmed bin Shafar, CEO of Empower, said that sponsoring the tournament is part of the social responsibility programs undertaken by the Foundation in terms of supporting various social and youth activities at the state level.
