Al Jazira strikes academic scholarship agreement with renowned Spanish university ISDE – Sport360 News



Al Jazira and Spanish university Instituto Superior de Derecho y Economía (ISDE) are pleased to announce the signing of a new academic scholarship cooperation agreement that will see the Abu Dhabi club offered five scholarship seats on an annual basis.

As the first collaboration of its kind between a Middle Eastern club and ISDE, the UAE champions will be offered five semi-scholarship seats for the university’s world-class sports programs, representing a 50-per-cent discount of the original fee, to its players, employees, coaching staff and executives.

Interested registrants can apply for a variety of easily accessible online postgraduate master’s programs such as Global Sports Management, International Sports Law and Markets, Industry Sports and Entertainment Law.

The cooperation comes as part of the Pride of Abu Dhabi’s extensive investment in its pursuit of excellence across all areas of the club. It represents one of the many examples bringing to life the club’s leadership’s vision for Al Jazira to become a successful example for clubs in the UAE, Asia and the rest of the world.

Commenting on the cooperation, Al Jazira Chief Executive Officer Ali Youssef Al Hammadi said: “Everyone at Al Jazira shares the commitment to continually break boundaries and find innovative ways for growth.

“This cooperation with a leading sports education institution will undoubtedly enable many of our trusted staff members to grow both academically and professionally, and ultimately bring back their new skills to the benefit of our Club. Education is a very important pillar at Al Jazira, and following this year’s programmes for our community’s school kids, we are delighted to now extend our investment into higher education.

“The cooperation particularly brings us immense pride as we become the first club in the Middle East to sign an agreement of this kind with ISDE.”

Recognised globally for its sports management and law courses, ISDE replicates work environments of leading law firms and companies, offering its students access to the same tools they would gain in the workplace. Boasting an alumni community of 30,000+ professionals across the globe, the university is home to campuses in Spain and the United States located from Madrid and New York to Barcelona and the northwestern region of Asutrias.

The modern Spanish university is in partnership with over 250 law firms and companies across 50+ countries. It is also in collaboration with world-leading academic institutions such as New York University, Georgetown, University of Miami and Jindal Global University, among others.

On the sports front, ISDE is in partnership with Spanish giants FC Barcelona, who are currently sponsoring several masters programs.

Marking the new agreement, Juan José Sánchez Puig, CEO of ISDE, points out that “with this agreement, ISDE offers Al Jazira’s athletes a profound international experience, excellence in training, as proven year after year with its outstanding position in the best international rankings. As well as an extraordinary digital training, that brings our students closer to success.”

Harness racing selections: Sunday, August 1



Two meetings to look at on Sunday, with my attention at Marburg and Cranbourne.

The best bets for the respective programs are down below.


Best bet: Race Two Number 1 Mustang Dude
The best on the card, and quite comfortably too. His recent runs have come at Redcliffe, placing three back after getting the box seat sit. The last couple have been plain but he hasn’t been helped by barriers. He gets the inside gate this time around and has enough early speed to hold up and prove hard to get past.

Next-best: Race One Number 1 The Last Starfire
He gets a perfect set-up here to bounce back into the winners’ list. He hasn’t won in a tick under 12 months, but the set-up here looks ideal with the lead his for the taking with a positive steer. He led and felt the pinch at Redcliffe last time but he does get such an ideal scenario here. A soft lead on a track where if you lead, there’s a good chance you’ll win.

Value: Race Three Number 6 Okanes Devil
I’m happy to have a small speck each way on this mare. She hasn’t exactly set the world on fire in recent times, but she did run a game fourth here three-back when attempting to lead throughout. She draws inside the second row and follows out a fast beginner, so should she land leaders back, she’ll be dangerous.


Best bet: Race Four Number 2 Ultimate Me
He went 2/2 at Cranbourne and I’m confident he makes 3/3 with Chris Alford to steer. He spanked them two-back at Melton before going to Maryborough and was game in defeat when second in a fast mile rate. I suspect he finds the front and will take a power of beating from there.

Next-best: Race Seven Number 7 Here Comes Kyvalley
He’ll need luck in the run from outside the front row, but he’s a smart trotter that will take beating on current form. He snagged back last start at Kilmore and worked to the line well when second in a race dominated on speed. If he gets the right run in transit, he’ll take beating.

Value: Race Three Number 1 Mister Macedon
A lightly-raced four-year-old that has done little wrong in his career to date, placing in 11 of 14 career outings. His latest run came last Friday night at Tabcorp Park Melton when wide with cover late and working to the line strongly. He can hold a forward spot from the pole and each-way at double figures appeals.

David Blough, Lions rooting on Melissa Gonzalez will warm your heart



David Blough and Detroit Lions teammates cheer on his wife Melissa Gonzalez

This is the type of viral social media content we are here for. Obviously, the whole global pandemic has made things especially difficult for the Olympics to happen in the first place. They were postponed by a year. Even though we have a vaccine for COVID-19, many of the same health restrictions are in place, as the virus mutates and impact the livelihoods of everyone involved.

Though Blough is not excepted to play much in his third season out of Purdue, it is not like he can travel across the world in the latter part of July. He has a football season to prepare for. While he would have loved nothing more than to have been in Tokyo in-person, it is great to see he and his teammates root on Gonzalez, as she tries to fulfill her lifelong dream of winning Olympic gold.

Here is to Gonzalez being one step closer to becoming an Olympic medalist for Colombia this year.

Toronto Blue Jays rookie pitcher Alek Manoah has been activated from the 10-day injured list and will start Saturday’s game against the Kansas City Royals, the team announced.

In a corresponding move, the Blue Jays optioned Trent Thornton to triple-A to make room for Manoah.

He successfully completed a simulated game and is hopeful to start against the Royals in the Blue Jays’ first home game at the Rogers Centre since 2020.

The rookie hurler was also out at the end of June due to a a five-game suspension he received after an ejection against the Baltimore Orioles on June 19.

Manoah, Toronto’s first-round pick in the 2019 MLB Draft, has thrived in his first season, boasting a 2-1 record with a 2.90 ERA and 52 strikeouts across 40.1 innings.
