The finalist teams, comprised of fifteen Emirati and fifteen expatriate students, will be competing in the ‘All Stars Match’, which marks the last of three phases of the ‘Stars of Tomorrow’ football league.
Powered by axiom and Adhaaf, ‘Stars of Tomorrow’ is the first official pan-Emirates school football league, aiming to encourage an active lifestyle among the UAE youth through healthy competition, and inspire a strong football-driven culture. The league offered more than 350 students from 36 schools across Abu Dhabi, Dubai, and Sharjah, a chance to compete and demonstrate their football skills to the nation.
“Seeing the youth of the UAE in the match, displaying their passion towards football, and exhibiting their truly talented skills, is a testament to the potential of today’s youth to becoming athletic leaders and ambassadors of the country’s football community,” said Faisal Al Bannai, CEO, axiom.
“We are proud to have had the opportunity to support this initiative with Adhaaf, and having observed the impact and success of the league, we are highly anticipating the next ‘Stars of Tomorrow’ league, which kicks off this academic year,” added Al Bannai.
Divided into three phases, the first phase saw twelve schools from each of the three emirates competing in April to be one of the 16 teams qualifying for the second knockout tournament that took place in May at The Dubai Mall, Ice Rink.
The final ‘All Stars Match’ will take place tomorrow, on the Humaid al Tayer pitch, at Al Nasr Club from 7:30 to 9PM.
