Saed (male) & Phantom Bulls (female) teams were named winners of the Red Bull Neymar Jr’s Five UAE tournament, which concluded the final qualifiers last weekend at Madar at Aljada, Sharjah’s popular entertainment destination.
The Saed team defeated Paradise in the finals of the men’s tournament, while Phantom Bulls beat Dubai Women to become the UAE’s first female team to compete at the Red Bull Neymar Jr’s Five world finals at the Instituto Projeto Neymar Jr. in Praia Grande in Doha, Qatar.
The seven members of the two teams, consisting of five main and two reserve players, have now received their boarding passes to the international tournament in Brazil later this year, and will have the opportunity to meet, and possibly face Neymar along with four of his superstar friends at the world’s largest five-a-side tournament of its kind.
Powered by Arada, the master developer behind Aljada, the UAE edition commenced on 19 February, drawing participation from more than 2,000 football enthusiasts, who’ve played over 350 competitive matches in 14 qualifiers across the Emirates. All qualifiers across were held in line with the local health measures and restrictions to keep the community safe.
