On Sunday 19 June 2005, Deputy Head of Mission of the German Embassy in Sana'a, Dr. Stefan Buchwald, and Secretary General of Al-Wahdah Club, Abdullah Al-Kibsi, opened a new outdoor volleyball field on the Al-Wahdah premises in Haddah. Upon initiative by the German Embassy, the field was built with the generous support of James Stone from Almaz Company on a piece of land kindly made available by Al-Wahdah Club.

During an interview on this occasion, Dr. Stefan highlighted: “The field makes a dream of the German Embassy's recently formed volleyball team come true to have a regular training area. It is just another example of the excellent state of relations between Yemen and Germany and will surely contribute to further enhance the personal contacts between our peoples.”

The Embassy welcomes other teams' interest to join the training and to play some competitive matches. In the friendly opening match, teams of the German Embassy and Al-Wahdah put up a strong fight and eventually shared the points. The opening was followed by a barbecue attended by a large number of enthusiastic fans.
