Almost there. With the completion of the 6th round of matches, the Dubai Schools Football Cup finally enters the knock out stages on Saturday 23rd February.

The atmosphere of competitive camaraderie witnessed both on and off the pitch has been inspirational. Not only have the students from across schools in Dubai had the opportunity to play their favourite sport every Saturday, but also the opportunity to interact and learn from each other. Especially for one of the kids. Ayman El Fatih received the prize of a life time after winning a facebook challenge – the opportunity to meet the entire Manchester United team who are currently enjoying a warm-weather training session in Dubai.

“I love football and this tournament has been great. I look forward to Saturdays and think our team stands a great chance of winning the amazing trip to Manchester. This weekend I entered and won the DSFC 24-hour facebook challenge and got to meet the entire Manchester United team. When I saw the players coming in, I couldn’t believe it. I have been waiting for this moment all my life. I can’t wait for the next round to begin,” said Ayman El Fatih winner of the challenge organized by DSFC on their face book page who is a player from Dubai International School Al Quoz.

And it will not be the end of it for Ayman. The talented kid could potentially have more surprises come down his way in the near future.
