Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 10th February 2019: Dubai Judicial Institute (DJI) concluded the first qualifying round of its 7th annual football tournament ‘Tolerance Tournament' on Wednesday, 6th February 2019. The matches to date revealed a high level of professionalism with a total of 69 scored goals. Round two of the qualifying stage commenced on 6th February and will continue till Monday, 11th February.
 
In spite of the cold weather, DJI's football field was filled with large crowds of fans who cheered the teams for providing wonderful, enthusiastic performances and unrivalled encouragement, enhanced by the professional commentary of the outstanding Sharjah Sports TV sportscaster, Abdulhamid Al Jasmi, who praised the players' outstanding performances.

HE Justice Dr Jamal Al Sumaiti, Director General of DJI, commented: “We are extremely happy with the enthusiastic competition and the sportsmanship that the teams presented. The sentiments are evidence of the positive impact this tournament has on player moral — in line with the Year of Tolerance — and its important role in motivating the youth to participate, develop their skills, and help them make use of their time in an enjoyable and beneficial manner in the pursuit of competition and fair play. We express our sincere gratitude to the audience who were eager to attend and encourage the players, instilling a sense of enjoyment and enthusiasm in each match.
 
The organisers expect the competition to intensify in the coming days with each qualifying round. The abundance of goals that were recorded was an important factor in increasing excitement and enthusiasm that helped highlight a number of players and teams, including Dubai Police who emerged as a competitor after scoring 15 goals against the General Civil Aviation Authority.
