Furthermore, the committee announced the awards for the top three teams. The first winner will receive 12,500 QAR, the second-place winner will receive 7,500 QAR and the third will get 5,000 QAR. Commenting on their participation for the third consecutive year, the Banks team representative, Mr. Mohammed Eissa, stated that the tournament brings back childhood memories of playing football without being surrounded by the vast number of rules that adult life brings, which makes this football tournament a remarkable experience.

Commenting on the tournament, a representative from Hamad Medical Services, Ahmed Al-Nosoor, said: “The organisation of this tournament seems excellent. This is our first time to participate in this tournament and we’re looking forward to enjoying every minute in what-will be-a thrilling ambiance.” The Ooredoo football tournament is jointly organised by AZF and Ooredoo and reflects the keenness of institutes across Qatar in building an active and sportive society by nurturing a passion for football in the country.

The last two editions were huge successes, with more than 160 football enthusiasts in Qatar taking part. The world-class football pitches at AZP are designed to meet international and European criteria and incorporate advanced solar technologies.
