The training session at the Lekhwiya stadium officially kicked off FIFA's start to the 2016-2017 season. Several parents also attended the occasion and cheered on their kids. 

To top it all of, the kids enjoyed a special meet-and-greet with Lekhwiya's marquee footballer, Chico Flores and head coach Djamel Belmadi.

Flores is a Spanish professional who has played for teams in the English Premier League and La Liga before joining the Qatari outfit.

The academy has additionally informed parents about a free coaching session on Sunday 16th October at Lekhwiya followed by a free entry to Lekhwiya v Al Sadd QSL game.
