3. The Yarmouk club vs. the Tholaya club
4. The Ahli of Sana’a vs. the May 22nd club
5. The Qadeseia club vs. the Somali community.
On the other hand, very active basketball matches took place at the Industrial Institute fields. The Philippine team presented very distinguished and nice performance.
At the end of the events, the Secretary General of the Yemen Olympic Committee and the General Director of the Clubs and Associations directorate in the Ministry of Youth and Sports rewarded the champions who took the first places in all activities. Balls and sports suits were given to the participants.
