AFC ASIAN CUP CONTINUES TO STAMP ITS MARK ACROSS THE COUNTRY

As balls are delivered into the box on the pitch, letters are being delivered with an AFC Asian Cup feel, with a commemorative stamp, honouring the tournament.

Now in circulation throughout the seven emirates, the AFC Asian Cup stamp features the competition's mascot Mansour, a local Emirati boy who captured the heart and spirit of the tournament during the opening ceremony at Zayed Sports City stadium.

Speaking on the launch of the commemorative stamps, Abdulla Mohammad Al Ashram, Acting Group CEO of Emirates Post Group, said: We're immensely proud the AFC Asian Cup is being hosted in the UAE for a second time and to celebrate we've launched a very special stamp. The prestigious sporting event marks a historic moment in the UAE's history as we welcome football fans from across the continent to the Emirates for a second time. We are truly "Bringing Asia Together" by hosting this diverse tournament with participating teams that include Australia and South Korea. What a way to start the UAE's Year of Tolerance and another great example of the nation's enduring respect for all people across the world."

The stamps will be available at all central Emirates Post Happiness Service Centres across the UAE - costing Dhs3.
