Local school football team SEK was victorious in the first round of the Volkswagen Junior Master Tournament at the weekend, kick-starting their campaign with Q-Auto to take on competitors throughout the region.

Along with runners up, Dutch School, they will now compete against 10 teams from across the Middle East in the regional finals, scheduled to take place in Dubai on 6-7 March.

Initiated as part of Q-Auto’ social responsibility commitment to supporting youth and sports in Qatar, the Volkswagen Junior Masters programme aims to connect young individuals with a passion for sport and encourages children to work together in a team, be active and stay healthy.

Yann Lassade, Volkswagen Managing Director at Q-Auto, said: “My heartfelt congratulations go out to both SEK School and Dutch School teams for their superb sportsmanship and skills on the field this weekend.”

“The Volkswagen Junior Masters Tournament is a fun, interactive, competitive way that we can support drive and inspiration in the younger generation, giving children the chance to participate in the beautiful game at a competitive level.

“Volkswagen Junior Masters plays an important role as part of Q-Auto’ commitment to give something back to our community. The competition, now in its sixth year here, has gone from strength to strength and we are extremely proud to be the driving force behind such an exhilarating tournament.”

Eight teams competed in this year’s tournament, held at the Markhyia Football Academy, including: SFQ, Qatar Foundation, Doha British School, German School, Future IFA, Newton School, Dutch School & SEK School.
