Join Harlequins for their second home friendly against Glasgow Warriors on Saturday 24th August (Kick-off 2.30pm) and experience the newly launched President's Lounge.
The matchball mascot on Saturday, brought to you by Shangri-La, Qaryat Al Beri and Etihad Airways, is nine years old, Khalfan Hasan Mohamad Hasan Alsuwaidi, from Abu Dhabi. Khalfan took part in the Etihad Harlequins Rugby Schools which was lead by Dean Richards, David Strettle, Will Skinner and four top coaches from Harlequins in Abu Dhabi. Following the short coaching clinic, Khalfan was inspired, along with other Emirati children, to take up the sport and went on to join local side, Abu Dhabi Harlequins Rugby Club. The Etihad Harlequins Rugby Schools was part of the Etihad Airways Junior Rugby Festival, which includes the Middle East's largest junior rugby tournament with over 1600 participants.
One lucky person at the game could win a fantastic holiday in Abu Dhabi for two people. They would get return flights from the UK and experience Etihad Airways' award winning service. Six nights accommodation would await the lucky winner in Abu Dhabi's leading hotel, Shangri-La, Qaryat Al Beri, along with a tour of the city and dinner in the desert courtesy of Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority.
