Israeli Soccer Club Beitar Jerusalem announced today that they are in serious negotiations with a group of investors based in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. With the signing of the “Abraham Accords” Israeli corporations and businesses as well as they counterparts in the UAE and Bahrain are busy finding ways to collaborate and sports is one of the best fashions to show between normalization between people, culture and countries.
The group led by Sulaiman Al-Fahim has been involved in the sports world as one of the main factors involved in the purchase of England Premier League club Manchester City back in 2008 to the Abu Dhabi United Group.
Beitar owner Moshe Hogeg will be traveling to Abu Dhabi in the near future to seal the deal which would see the yellow & black become a dominant club in Israel and around the world. This will be a tangible symbol of the new winds of peace blowing in the Middle East, which is best described by the club’s motto over the past two seasons of “Love thy neighbor as yourself”.
