It also saves the time and effort of falconers who have a choice of entering falcons for specific races such as the Trophy, Car or Cash event,” she said.

“We will organize the season finale Super Finals (‘Al Nukhba') for elite falconers to at the end of the falconry championships this year, in which the winners and some of the top three players, will compete to raise the level of the championship to unprecedented levels,” added Ms. Suad Ibrahim Darwish.
