With the FIFA Women’s World Cup taking place in France this summer, girls football is definitely becoming something to look forward to and watch! Closer to home, just last week, the girls at King’s College Doha were celebrating their gold medal success in the Schools League, for the second year running.
Director of Sport at Kings College Ian Hutchinson, gives a wider insight into the girls’ success:
We recognise the benefits of competitive sport for all our pupils and ensure (that) opportunities exist for students of all abilities, ages and gender. The King’s girls football teams show that no barriers exist for our girls as they choose to pursue their dreams through any sport.
The achievements of our Year 4 girls in the Qatar Primary Schools tournament are incredibly inspiring to our whole school community. Being able to share the turf at Aspire Park with teams such as Paris St Germain and Bayern Munich, who played there during their winter training, really helps the children to believe in themselves.’
Could it be Qatar’s turn next for the Women’s World Cup in 2023? Kings College will certainly be ready!
And for the second year in a row, the gold medal winners of the QPPSSA girls football tournament 2018/19 at Aspire Academy are……🏆🏅⭐️⭐️⭐️YEAR 4 KING'S GIRLS⭐️⭐️⭐️CONGRATULATIONS GIRLS👏👏👏 such a great achievement!#QPPSSA #Gold #Champions #Football #Qatar
