FOOTBALL SEASON KICKS OFF FRIDAY
Jordan's 2016-17 football season kicks off Friday with the annual curtain raiser - the Cup of Cups.
The match sees league champions Wehdat take on Jordan Cup winners Al Ahli at the Amman International Stadium from 8pm.
Wehdat have won the trophy 12 times and will welcome back national team stars Hassan Adulfattah from Qatar as well as Munther Abu Amarah from Kuwait.
Al Ahli were last season's surprise package and will be looking to make their mark with most of the same team and coaching staff.
