Aspire Academy Team TID emerged as winners in the Aspire Zone Foundation's (AZF) Futsal championship at Aspire Academy on Friday.

TID grabbed the trophy at the men’s futsal tournament for employees after securing a 6-2 win against Team Logistics.

Batfootball came in third after winning the penalty shootouts against Aspetar, ending the game with a final score of 5-4.

The hockey tournament also ended on Friday.

Team Bright Stars emerged as winners of the indoor hockey tournament after an outstanding showcase of skill at the final match, which ended in a 10-3 win against runner-up Doha Club.

Commenting on the occasion, Maggid Abu-Talib, Technical Director at the Qatar Hockey Federation, praised Aspire Zone for including the indoor hockey on this year’s RSF agenda, saying: “The RSF provided hockey fans with an opportunity to play their favourite sport among family and friends who came to support.

The tournament also comes shortly after the Qatari national team won third place and secured their first-ever hockey medal at the Indoor Asia Cup 2017, the biggest indoor hockey tournament to be hosted by Qatar.

Some said they hope to see more hockey sporting events for all community members, including women and juniors, throughout the year. Former Egyptian hockey player, who represented Egypt in a number of international tournaments, Abdo Mustafa Mahmoud was among the participants.

The awards were presented by Abdullah Aman Al Khater, Events Manager and Nasser Abdullah Al Hajri, Director of PR and Communication at AZF.

The RSF is an annual sporting event that runs for two weeks. Over 1,300 members from the local community are set to participate in 11 sports tournaments. This year’s festival is sponsored by Ooredoo and Saleh Al Hamad Al Mana Co.
