UAE's new league name on Tuesday, says official
The use of the Pro League led to the UAE Football League, which ran the domestic competitions, being disbanded earlier in the year, with the FA now in charge.
"The FA's committee will meet on Tuesday to name the new league but I am not too sure of the immediate outcome or if it would be released to the media immediately," Jaseb Majeed, the FA's media manager, said.
The control of the league was given to the FA in June after the "Pro League" allegedly failed to "abide by the official original name" - the League of Pro Football Clubs - and Ibrahim Abdul Malik, the secretary general of the General Authority of Youth and Sports Welfare, dissolved it.
