Published in The Saudi Gazette on 02 - 08 - 2021

RIYADH —A month-long International Falcon Breeders Auction (IFBA) being organized for the first time in Saudi Arabia is set to begin on Aug. 2 at the Saudi Falcons Club Grounds in Malham, North of Riyadh.
Commenting on the preparations to host the global event, Saudi Falcons Club's official spokesman Walid Al-Taweel emphasized that the organization of the IFBA, the first of its kind in the region, will be a milestone in the revival of this cultural heritage and renewed legacy.
Moreover, through the IFBA, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia will become a global destination for Falcon Breeders. The best local and international falcon breeding farms were invited, ultimately bringing together the leading and most premiere falcon breeds in the world, both locally and internationally, including the rarest of all breeds.
Al-Taweel said that the auction will provide a dependable and unique platform for the world's finest and most elite falcons, as well as for rare breeds and international falcon champions. The club will host a competitive auction, which will be held every other day, featuring trustworthy and direct sales, Top-Tier Falcons, leading Falcon Breeding Farms, and falconry enthusiasts from Saudi Arabia and worldwide. The IFBA will also be broadcast live on social media platforms and well-known television stations.
He noted that the IFBA aims to provide the rarest falcon breeds in the Kingdom and the region, as well as to attract the most authentic international experiences in the field of falconry to the Kingdom, making the Kingdom an international destination for these farms, thereby expanding investment opportunities and creating direct and indirect business opportunities.
Al-Taweel explained that preparations for the auction include providing the right place to host falcons and their breeders, as well as creating the appropriate place inside the auction to welcome Falcon Breeding Farms and Bidders within and outside the Kingdom, in accordance with the precautionary measures against COVID-19 approved by the Ministry of Health to ensure the safety of attendees and organizers.
It is noteworthy to mention that the International Falcon Breeders Auction has been developed to become a full-service event at the Saudi Falcons Club Grounds in Malham, north of Riyadh, which includes an area for companies providing veterinary products, tools, and supplies for the breeding and training of falcons.
