KUWAIT: The best soccer players of Kuwait met at Hasan Abul’s Training Center for a creative and innovative soccer tournament: Red Bull Winning 5. 16 teams out of 80 participated in the national final at the Hasan Abul Training Center where members of team “Friends 2” were the last men standing and were crowned champions of Kuwait’s Red Bull Winning 5. The winners went through several phases and were able to eliminate their opponents one after another, reaching the final game against team “Friends 1”.
The crowds witnessed great performances that lead team “Friends 2” to the title. Whenever a goal was scored, the other team lost one player and so many games in the qualifiers just ended after few minutes, whereby some teams were able to beat their rivals immediately.
The final round was different where intense and exciting action accompanied the performances of both teams who showed exceptional skills with the aim to win the title. However, thrill and excitement were not bound to the final game only, for the adventure started with dual games of the 16 teams coming from previous qualifiers where 80 fought for the 16 final places. As the competition is based on elimination, the number of teams decreased gradually while the level increased steadily.
Each team of 5 players with no goalkeeper, had to eliminate a player from the opposite team upon scoring a goal. The games consisted of 10 minutes each, and ended whenever one of the teams was eliminated. Red Bull Winning 5 winners expressed their extreme joy in winning this unique competition that gave the opportunity to demonstrate their football skills at a unique tournament.
