The Jordan Olympic Committee (JOC) has signed an agreement with the Greater Amman Municipality (GAM) to streamline the system for granting licenses.
The agreement was signed between Amman Mayor, Dr. Yousef Al Shawarbeh, and JOC Secretary General, Nasser Majali, and it will align the two organisations so that the JOC will be able to authorise licenses that apply to the sporting sector.
The online system is streamlining the way Greater Amman Municipality operates and follows the instructions from HM King Abdullah II to simplify processes.
“We are very happy to partner with GAM,” Majali said. “This cooperation is an important step to provide the best service for Jordanian, and, in particular for us, Jordanian sport as it improves and speeds up the licensing process.”
The agreement will enable applicants to obtain operating licenses direct from the JOC for operations such as a snooker and billiards centre, fencing training centre, a sports training centre for chess, the establishment of tournaments and sports camps, as well as facilities for bodybuilding, fitness, golf, football and more.
It will also enable other sports to obtain licenses such as Equestrian, Weightlifting, Taekwondo, Kickboxing, Muay Thai, Karate, Wrestling, Boxing and Ju-Jitsu.
