02 Apr 2015, General
Doha, 2 April 2015. It is a busy time for the young football players of Aspire Academy because the majority of Academy teams are currently competing in prestigious tournaments all over the globe.
Generation 1998 is playing at the 'Adidas Generation Cup' in Dallas, USA; the age-groups of 1999 and 2002 travelled to Spain to play in the 'Mediterranean International Cup' (MIC) and the 'MEC' tournament, whilst the teams of 2000 and 2003 went to Turkey for the 'Vodafone Cup' and the 'Izmir Cup'.
“It is part of our competition plan that every age group competes at least one time outside of Qatar each year so the players can face different environments and get out of their comfort zone. Playing in these strong tournaments is a valuable experience for them and plays an important role in developing a competitive spirit,” says Roberto Olabe, Director of Football at Aspire Academy.
