With the football season drawing to a close and no World Cup this summer fans are bracing themselves for a quiet few months. However, this Ramadan, players will compete for the 10th annual Ahdaaf Ramadan Cup 2019, powered by Nike.
Played on two Nike-branded pitches, in the Al Quoz industrial area, teams will compete against each other in a league table format before progressing onto the knockout stages of the competition. Matches are played in a five-a-side format with sides allowed to register seven players in the squad, who can be used in rotation during the game.
Teams are competing over nine days as they battle it out for the winner’s trophy.
There’s competition for both males and females as 24 men’s teams who will be looking to take home a share of the Dhs 30,000 grand prize. The Nike slogan for the tournament, which is emblazoned around the pitches, says ‘End it with speed, end it with precision’, which is exactly what the teams will have to do as matches are just 30 minutes in length.
Prior to tonight’s opening fixtures, youngsters were invited to play some matches on the Nike-branded pitches along with some precision challenges for both the men and women.
