Red Bull Winning 5 is coming will take place for the first time in Kuwait!
Winning 5 is a mini Football tournament with a twist. Amateur football players will have the chance to participate in a unique and exciting competition. This event will have two qualifiers on July 6 and 7 with 64 teams competing. Only the best 8 teams will qualify to the final that will be held on June 10th at 9pm at Hassan Abul Soccer Courts in Al Dasma.
The five aside event does not include goalkeepers, whereby the goal is relatively small, i.e. 2m large x 1m high. The game is based on elimination, so the loosing team is out of competition. However, a unique rule states that every goal scored allows the team to eliminate a player from the opposite team. This decision is to be taken by the team captain within 5 seconds of scoring, by pointing to the selected player with his finger.
This event is challenge-based, and focuses on creativity and entertainment while being a serious football competition. Each match consists of two 5-minute halves, and lasts until one team is completely eliminated, therefore it is challenging yet exciting for the teams to undergo the next round of games with one or more missing member.
Partner for this event include Ford Middle East, Kuwait Times and Al Anba. For more info and registration, please visit Winning 5 Kuwait or call 66406020.
