Saudi Arabia, Oman, Bahrain, Kuwait and United Arab Emirates with Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and the recently inaugurated Ras Al Khaimah were all involved in the Juventus Academy Middle East tournament.
The competition, which saw the Kuwait Academy crowned champions, took place at the "Dubai Club for People of Determination", with the venue hosting over 120 children, coaches, carers and parents, with the protagonists being the respective Under 12 teams.
It was a unique opportunity for the children to experience a full-on weekend, including the values of the Juventus philosophy. A vision that the Club, which aims to help develop people, before footballers, through a method that combines the technical aspects with those of mental, emotional and interpersonal.
The tournament has been previously held in Kuwait, Oman and Bahrain, allowing the sharing of the Bianconeri passion amongst all the Academies in the region. It will continue to take place again in other locations and it once more confirms the growth of the Juventus Academy project in the Middle East, as evidenced by the recent tour that featured Edgar Davids, as well as the award for Best Football Academies in the United Arab Emirates, won by the Bianconeri facilities in Dubai and Abu Dhabi last April.
