MEET THE CANDIDATE

MOHAMMED KHALFAN AL-ROMAITHI

Mohammed Khalfan Al-Romaithi has been at the heart of the Asian sports community for over 20 years. Under his stewardship, the UAE has become a regional sports pioneer – culminating this year with the hosting of the AFC Asian Cup UAE 2019, which followed two successful FIFA Club World Cup tournaments in 2017 & 2018.

As a youngster, Al-Romaithi was drawn to sport and demonstrated a natural ability on the football pitch. It was here that his lifelong passion for the beautiful game began. He represented Al Ain Football Club – the UAE’s most successful domestic team – at youth level and three decades later returned to his childhood club as its General Secretary before eventually becoming Chairman of the Board in 2001.
