Aspire Academy and Qatar Football Association (QFA) released the Youth Calendar for the 2019-2020 season.

Aspire Academy and Qatar Football Association (QFA) confirmed the Youth Calendar for 2019-20, signing an agreement to this effect on Thursday.

The agreement was signed by Director-General of Aspire Academy Ivan Bravo and Director of Football Development at Qatar Football Association (QFA) Fahad Thani Al Zaraa.

The calendar lists the dates of games and tournaments for the upcoming season.

“At the Football Development Department at QFA we support the elite programs run by Aspire Academy as they provide the foundation for future successes of players in national teams,” Fahad Thani Al Zaraa said.

“It is a challenging process to align all the important dates of a season so that no changes will be necessary later. This calendar guarantees all involved parties stability throughout the year. We wish Aspire teams success for their tournaments,” Al Zaraa added.

Jonatan Cabanelas, Specific Training Football Coordinator at Aspire Academy, underscored the need for a well-planned calendar.

“This calendar is one of the most important tools for our youth development programme, as there are many activities such as training camps, friendlies and tournaments. It’s important to align the dates with the national teams and clubs as well as with the school exams, so our boys can have maximum success in whatever they do. We all want the best for the development of our young Qatari players.”
