• Record number of elite falconers expected to participate in the competition
Dubai, 26 January 2021: The 9th edition of Fakhr Al Ajyal (Pride of Generations) Falconry Championship, where a record number of elite falconers are expected to participate, will run from January 30 until February 16 at Dubai’s Al Ruwayyah desert area.
Over the years, the annual falconry championship, organised by the Hamdan Bin Mohammed Heritage Center (HHC), has grown in size, popularity and prestige. It is now recognised as the second highly-anticipated annual gathering of the best falconers from across the UAE, GCC and beyond.
Fakhr Al Ajyal will kick off on Saturday and Sunday (January 30, 31) in the RC Airplane Category to be followed by Sheikhs Category the following day (February 1). 
From February 1 to 4, the Sheikhs and Falcon Owners’ categories will have races for Jeer Shaheen, Jeer Teba, Hurr Farkh, and Garmousha (Farkh and Jirnas).
The Open Category will run from February 5-8 with races in Jeer Shaheen, Jeer Teba, Hurr Jeer, Hurr Farkh, and Garmousha (Farkh and Jirnas) while the Juniors Category is scheduled on February 13. 
All eyes will be on the upcoming Al Noukhba (Elite) on February 14, where only falcons that won in previous races are qualified to compete and win huge prizes.
The concluding competitions will be from February 15-16 for the GCC Category. A record number of elite falconers from the region are expected to participate in the various races for Farkh and Jirnas falcons. 
Meanwhile, there will also be races for the UAE Falconers League, a collaboration between the HHC and Abu Dhabi Falconers Club, during the Fakhr Al Ajyal from February 9-10.
