Aspire Academy hosted the former President of Paraguay, his Excellency Luis Federico Franco Gómez, when he and his wife toured the Academy on the afternoon of Wednesday 13th February. President Gomez was welcomed by Aspire Academy Deputy Director General, Mr.  Ali Salem Afifa, who went on to lead the tour.

Speaking after his visit, President Gómez was full of praise for Aspire Academy and paid compliments to the nation of Qatar for the way it has gone about developing sport in the country. “Aspire is spectacular, and that’s not only the facilities l am talking about, but rather the whole concept and approach to youth sport development, from education to pastoral care to training. It is evident this has been planned and executed to the highest level, producing results like the recent victory in Asian Cup. That testifies to the amazing work being done at Aspire,” said President Gomez.

He added that he will be back in Qatar for the 2022 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar™ and hopes to watch Qatar play against Paraguay. “Before that, however, we will be up against each other this June in Brazil during the Copa America 2019 tournament. l look forward to that match too.”
