Messi visits ASPIRE

Gulf Times article on Lionel Messi's visit to ASPIRE Academy.

Qatar Professional League to be launched in September

Interesting article in The Peninsula today saying firstly that the QFA have denied offering Felipe Scolari a job in Qatar and secondly confirming the launch of a revamped Q-Legaue next season.

The writer also interestingly emphasises the influence of the Asian Football Confederation on the decision to 'professionalise' the game here in Qatar.
