The Dubai Schools Football Cup heats up with clear top spot contenders emerging during the fourth week. In the U-15 boys group, Choueifat, based on a surprising turn of events is now tied in standings with Dubai National School who had been holding the position from day one onward, with 21 points each.

The young men showed great tenacity on the pitch winning all three matches yesterday. They are followed closely behind by Al Shafie and Rashid Bin Saleh who are level at 18 points each. With two more weeks to go in the group stages, the air is thick with excitement as teams vie to qualify for the quarterfinals with their sights set on the big prize: the trip of a lifetime to Old Trafford in the UK to participate in a football clinic with Manchester United coaches and watch a Manchester United premier league game at the iconic stadium, courtesy of top sponsors – Chevrolet and Emirates NBD.

The Cup is also helping discover Dubai’s young football talent as coaches from across Dubai’s Clubs and Salgado’s Spanish Soccer Schools scout talent, keenly observing all the players on the pitch.

“The Dubai Schools Football Cup is providing us with a unique opportunity to witness and encourage the skills of school children from all across Dubai. Within the first weeks of the tournament we have already seen high-quality matches and young players with real talent and myself and the coaches at the Dubai Sports City Football Academy have taken note of their abilities. In fact, we have reached out to a number of students to discuss how we can help develop their skills and pave the way to take their games forward to the next level and beyond – and, who knows, maybe even to professional football,” said Michel Salgado, Director of Dubai Schools Football Cup.
