The Algerian Football Federation Suspends Competitions in Solidarity with Palestine

On Wednesday, the Algerian Football Federation made an announcement stating that all football competitions will be suspended “until further notice” as a show of solidarity with the Palestinian people.

Statement from the Algerian Football Federation

The federation, on its official website, expressed its support for the Palestinian people and respect for the martyrs of the recent aggression in Gaza. The Algerian Football Federation (FAF) has therefore decided to suspend all football competitions indefinitely.

Reason for the Suspension

The decision to suspend competitions came in response to the tragic event that occurred at Al-Ahly Al-Arabi (Al-Mamadani) Hospital in Gaza City. Over 470 people lost their lives, and more than 300 were injured during the incident, according to the Hamas Health Ministry.

While Hamas accuses Israel of bombing the hospital and claims that over 500 people have died, the Israeli army attributes the strike to a rocket fired by the Islamic Jihad movement, which the latter denies.

Algeria’s Support for Palestine

Algeria, a strong advocate for the Palestinian cause, recently declared its willingness to host official and unofficial matches of the Palestinian national football team. This offer includes preparations for the 2026 World Cup and the 2027 Asian Championship qualifiers, with Algeria covering all associated costs.
