A huge number of government institutions accepted H.H Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed’s invitation to the unique challenge of the "Government Games", which focuses on the importance of teamwork, values , harmony, strategic thinking and physical strength.

The Government Games will be held on 9-12 of May, with teams participating from all emirates and teams from outside the UAE.

Among the participating teams is The Executive Council team led by Mohammed Al Awadhi, who emphasised the importance of team spirit and cooperation to overcome these challenges. "My first challenge was to understand the team members and where their strength lies," he says.

"The challenges we are going to face are unknown, so we must be prepared to face anything and overcome all obstacles," he said. The team has recently begun to intensify their efforts and diversify the exercises to reach the required level.

Teams compete to win the Government Games title, and a million dirham prize for both men and women’s teams.
