QATAR’S Mubarak Hamad Al Khayareen is set to become the new president of International Billiards and Snooker Federation (IBSF).
The IBSF’s new office-bearers will be elected on Saturday at the Annual General Assembly, to be held on the sidelines of ongoing World Snooker Championships in Doha.
Al Khayareen, currently Executive Director of the Qatar Billiards and Snooker Federation, will take over from India’s Captain P V K Mohan, who completed his two-year term.
According to sources, Al Khayareen will be elected unopposed as no other candidate is in the fray, with Mohan not seeking re-election.
Al Khayareen is a well-known figure in Qatar’s cue sports fraternity and an able administrator. He is currently a Board member of the IBSF and also heads the Asian Confederation of Billiard Sports.
