Doha: The 2016 Asian Rugby tri-nations Division III Championship will kick off today at the Aspire warm-up and purpose built rugby track. The championship is hosted by Qatar Rugby Federation and the other matches will be held on April 19 and 22 .

This will be the first Asia Rugby Championship in Doha since it changed its name from the Asia Five Nation (A5N) in 2015.
“The QRF is delighted at the opportunity to host the Asia Rugby Championship and welcoming Iran and Lebanon’s national rugby teams to Doha. I hope they will enjoy our city and the international playing facilities provided by Aspire,” said Qatar Rugby Federation President Yousef Al Kuwari.
The Asian Rugby Championship will provide the newly-appointed federation with the biggest challenge so far.
Kuwari said: “This is Qatar’s chance to display to the world how far we have developed with rugby in particular over the last eight months.
As much as it may be a challenge in hosting the rugby championship, it’s equally exciting for the federation. Asia and World rugby have so many rules and stipulations but we will not fail in our performance.”
The QRF General-Secretary Ali Al Malki said: “This will be a perfect opportunity for Qatar to join hands and expose our talents both on and off the field. I encourage every Qatari and sports fan to attend the matches at Aspire and barrack for our national team.” 
Al Malki continued: “I also extend an invite to all expats to help create an atmosphere that only rugby can achieve.  I call on in particular the two communities of Iran and Lebanon to attend and cheer on their home teams”. 
The Qatar Rugby Federation, the Qatar Olympic Committee and Asia Rugby (AR)  have all endorsed and sanctioned  the Asia Rugby Championship.The Peninsula
