The tournament kicked off on May 2 with the first qualifier, followed by the second qualifier on May 9.

Commenting on the occasion, Founder & CEO F5WC Charles Stephenson said: "I would like to congratulate the Al Waab team on winning this championship and also congratulate Mackeen Holding and Al Nasr for winning second and third place respectively. I would like to extend a special thanks to all those who supported the initiative in Qatar and transformed it into an outstanding success the local sponsors Qatar Lubricants Co., Qatar Football Association and Legacy Sports and Events/Duplays Doha for all their support and immense contribution."

"The concept of F5WC - to reveal football talent - is very close to my heart and it gives me great pleasure to see how well the idea was received in Qatar in its first year, and I certainly look forward to bringing the 2nd edition next year," he added.

The victors win an all expenses paid trip to Dubai from June 12 to 14, while competing against 31 other countries at the Dubai World Trade Centre. Prizes also include two branded football kits and tracksuits as well as 10 passes for the upcoming World Cup International Special Event at the Radisson Blu Doha that includes dinner and meet-up with top football legends like Chris Waddle, Gary McAllister and Deitmar Hamann.
