According to the Arab Championship system, should the Falcons win against Lebanon, then they will have another opportunity of play against Tunisia at the semi-finals. Their loss, however, would cause them to leave the championship, which ends on Wednesday, February 16, empty-handed.

The Falcons hope to achieve their first victory at the Arab Championship when they face Lebanon, after suffering three consecutive losses in the preliminary round against the UAE (81-85), Tunisia (56-64), and Libya (69-81).

This participation comes within the framework of the national team’s preparations for their matches against Lebanon and Indonesia which will take place on 7:00pm on February 24 and 27 at Prince Hamzah Hall in Al-Hussein Youth City, as part of the second stage of the Asian qualifiers for the 2023 World Cup finals.
