Importance of our Academy

Our Doha Pearl Academy players also had the opportunity to help their team as they wished the Pearl FC first success before the game and also lead both teams out! Thank you again to all the plays and parents who came and stayed well past their bedtimes as the game went to extra time and penalties. The importance of the first team players and our academy having this bond is essential for both groups as it creates role models and gives our players hope and vision.
