Faisal Al Husseini Stadium


This is the latest picture of the stadium where Palestine will play its first International match on home soil against Jordan on the 26th of the month.Faisal Al Husseini Stadium is located just north of Jerusalem and it seats 6000.The opening will be attended by Sepp Blatter.
Now about the preperations for the match,the training camp in underway in Ramallah with the domestic players led by Ezzat Hamza(who did an ok job in the WAFF tournament last summer if I might say so).The FA is stepping up efforts to secure overseas players but this could be tough as the match doesnt lie on a FIFA matchday.
