For the second year in a row, the love for “The Beautiful Game” is about to gather amateur football players in Qatar, between the age of 16 and 25 to compete Neymar Jr’s international five-aside tournament: Neymar Jr’s Five!

During the next 4 weeks, football players will compete in 6 national qualifiers to determine the best 16 teams, who will outplay each other in the national final, scheduled to kick off on 7th April, 2017. National qualifiers will be held according to the following schedule:

• 17th & 18th March – 2:00PM: Education City, Recreation Center, Pitch 1.
• 24th & 25th March – 2:00PM: Al Wakrah Club.
• 31st March & 1st April – 2:00PM: Al Sadd Club.

The winning team will represent Qatar to compete against the winning teams from 53 countries during the world final in Brazil later this year, and will get the chance to meet the legendary Brazilian & FC Barcelona iconic player: Neymar Jr.

Want to participate? Visit and register your team, or call 66004820 for more information.

 The rules of the game are simple: 5 Vs 5 with no goalkeeper. Once you score a goal, one player of the opposing team gets eliminated, until you outplay them all! You’ve got only 10 minutes to win, and in case of a tie, it’s penalty kicks time!

In 2016, Qatar’s qualifier attracted over 150 teams who pushed themselves to their limits, put on the best teamwork they can, until FC Skyber outplayed all the participating teams in Qatar and travelled to Brazil to represent the country. Who will make it to the world finals this year in Brazil? Let’s see…
