Oman’s most famous footballer, Ali Al Habsi, in few hours will appear on today’s Generation Amazing Instagram Live. The goalkeeper, who played for Bolton Wanderers and Wigan Athletic in the English Premier League, will discuss health and fitness, his time with the Oman national team and the football values he teaches young people who want to follow in his footsteps.
The live stream will take place at 4 PM Doha time (GMT +3) on Wednesday, 3 June. Since April, Generation Amazing has delivered its programme online in order to reach its audience during the coronavirus pandemic. More than 100,000 people have tuned in for the broadcasts, which have featured some of the biggest names in football.
A FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ legacy programme, Generation Amazing has been active in Oman since 2019. In recent weeks, viewers in Oman have taken part in sessions which connected Doha and Muscat. They have also taken part in home workouts delivered by the Generation Amazing master coaches.
As well as organising online sessions, Generation Amazing has provided a boost to volunteers who have been supporting Qatar’s fight against COVID-19. The programme donated footballs, sportswear and training equipment to Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) volunteers so they can keep fit during their breaks.
