Jul 03, 2018
The organising committee for the 15th Asian Karate Federation (AKF) Championships have declared that they are ready to host this major international sporting event in Amman from July 9-15.
The finishing touches have been applied to the three venues in Al Hussein Youth City which will host more than 450 fighters from 45 countries.
On the sidelines of the world-class action, the Executive Office of the AKF will meet, and there will also be a referee course featuring 150 officials.
Jordan will hope to impress as the host nation with a strong team of 25 fighters entered across the various weight categories.
The Jordan Karate Federation’s Moeen Fauri praised the Kingdom’s state of preparedness and believes it bodes well for a successful event.
“All three venues – the Prince Hamzeh Hall, Prince Rashed Hall and Princess Sumaya Hall – have all been prepared to the highest standards and I would like to thank all of those who have stepped up to support this event which promises to be something special.”
