Potential Messis and Ronaldos start out in the United Arab Emirates

Sportlomo are pleased to be part of an exciting and unique event that is being held right across the United Arab Emirates. Sportlomo are providing the membership and player registration system and also the competition management platform for this cup. It is expected that over 12,000 players across the UAE will be registered through our systems.

The Spanish football league La Liga, home to great clubs like Barcelona and Real Madrid is partnering with the UAE Schools Cup and Streets Cup to support the initiative. It is the first partnership of its kind in the UAE where a leading European football league commits to scouting for talent and providing training for them in the world’s best state-of-the-art football facilities. La Liga will be providing professional league coaches from Spain who will not only scout, but also mentor players.

Both Cups will run concurrently with each other. School teams and street teams from Al Ain, Abu Dhabi city, Dubai and the Northern Emirates will play their group and qualifying stages locally at Al Ain Football Club, Zayed Sports City Abu Dhabi, The Sevens Dubai, Sharjah Football Club, respectively. National semifinals will be played at The Sevens Dubai and the finals will be played on the Dubai Mall ice rink.

The Grand Prize for the UAE Schools Cup Boys U14 & Girls U17 is a 3-day all-expenses paid trip to watch Manchester United play live at Old Trafford. The Grand Prize for the UAE Schools Cup Boys U16 and UAE Streets Cup is an all-expenses paid 14-day trip to the Andalusia region of Spain for training, competitive matches and football tourism with La Liga.

Additionally top players of the tournament, as determined by Championship Director and Real Madrid legend, Michel Salgado, will be selected from the entire tournament to join the Spain 2-week trip. Moreover, players on the Spain trip have the chance to be scouted by La Liga coaches who are training them for a chance to play at one of the top clubs in La Liga.

Week 1 started last weekend and over 2,000 players took to the field at Zayed Sports City stadium in Abu Dhabi, you can follow the results here.

DU Football Champions (duFC) has extended the registration period due an overwhelming response from schools and teams across the UAE.

The number of participants expected to take part in the youth football tournament has increased from 8,000 to 11,000.

The kick-off date will be October 31 for Abu Dhabi and November 7 for Al Ain. Registration for Abu Dhabi closes on October 21 to allow the additional number of participants to enter the nationwide competition.

duFC has partnered with La Liga to offer young talented players in the UAE the opportunity to kick-start a professional career on an international and national level.

Fernando Sanz, general director for MENA at La Liga, said: “Witnessing this overwhelming response from the youth across the UAE reinforces our belief that there is a strong need for a partnership like the one we have with du to discover the UAE’s future international pro-football stars.

“The du Football Champions platform, with its two cups – the UAE Schools Cup and UAE Streets Cup – will drive young football talents in the UAE to bring their best game forward and we will be there to help them take it to the next level.”

The expected 11,000 players (boys and girls) will consist of 500 teams from the UAE Schools Cup and 500 teams from the UAE Streets Cup.

“The demand for participation in the duFC has been staggering,” said Michel Salgado, duFC championship director. “I have witnessed first-hand how much talent we have in this country and now we have a platform that will allow these talented youth to shine and embark on a professional career.

“I could not be happier, I truly believe that this platform will transform the lives of the youth that play in it and the communities that support it.

Hundreds of schools and thousands of youngsters will compete for the grand prizes which includes an all-expenses paid 14-day trip to Spain with La Liga for training and competitive matches with Spain’s best youth football clubs.
