QAL Champions 2019!

BEIN Sports and Nicky Crosby, presenting for one of the biggest sporting TV shows in the world were there to film tonight’s concluding game.

Beating Al Naser in normal time 2 - 0. A penalty decision in the final moment of injury time and the score 1 - 0. Our goalkeeper Noba stood brave to deny the Al Naser striker. From the resulting rebound, the Lusail SC attacked to seal the win with a thunderbolt from Lusail SC Luke Gibson sealing the 2 - 0 win taking the game to extra time and penalties!

Lusail SC were the more composed and organised gelling together and ended up winning 7 - 6 in penalties resulting in jubilant scenes that will stay with the memories of the players, coaches and supporters for the rest of their lives!


After applications were approved Pearl FC were promoted to QFA Division 3 professional tier in August 2019. With stringent rules and licenses required for coaching the management structure changed. Founder and Manager Keith Young moved into Academy planning with Head Coach Ciaran Kelly.

Already involved at the start of planning for the professional tier Qatari General Manager Mohamed Al Motawa used his highly respected football background in Qatar to oversee a brand new coaching structure of Qatari, Portugese, English, Brazilian, Serbian and Irish coaching staff. A new era begins as The Pearl FC change there name for third and hopefully final time to Lusail Sports Club.

With one of the best football academies in the country, a superb organization structure with focus on youth and development Lusail S.C is sure to be written into footballing history in Qatar as we start with a 3-0 win over Al Waab at Hamad stadium. A new and exciting era begins!!
