Medgulf’s football team recently won the ‘Qatar National Day Football Tournament 2014’ that was held in Al Khor Sports club.
It was a day like any other, the only difference being our football team was ready to conquer something they set their eyes on ever since they heard about this much awaited football tournament.
The day started with 8 teams participating in the much anticipated tournament. Beating all odds and after comprehensively winning the league stage the team finally nurtured thoughts of winning the cup. Dressed in blue and white with Medgulf logo printed on their jerseys the team marched forward from the word go.
Our diverse squad of kickers came together in true team spirit for this event. Even though they all work for the same company, most of them hardly get any time to practice together which makes this victory even sweeter. The fact that they managed to secure enough players to enter this tournament was a victory in itself. For them it was all about playing a little football for a good cause, while quietly nourishing the dream of victory.
The enthusiasm with which the team played was infectious and transferred to the sideline. The substitute players along with the team officials were in high spirits and so were the spectators in the stands.
Under the guidance of Team Coach Mr. Babalade Musah, the team went from strength to strength during the league stage to finally win the coveted trophy.
Medgulf has always encouraged its employees to have fun in whatever they do, be it work or play and this reflected in the team’s on-field attitude & performance. It was a great effort from the boys and the joy that came along with the victory will be cherished for a long time to come.
