The tournament garnered a huge response and participation from Arab and International football stars alike! Real Madrid goalkeeper, Thibaut Courtois, and Arsenal striker, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, are among the stars that are taking part in the initiative.
Arab stars included Algeria’s Africa Cup of Nations winning defender, Djamel Benlamri, Saudi Arabia and Al Hilal legend, Yasser Al Qahtani, UAE maestro, Omar Abdulrahman and several other players from the Saudi Professional League.
“We got more than half a million views, and raised 350,000 riyals which will be donated to charities.” Tweeted Al Dossary, after announcing the winner of the tournament, Feras Albrikan.
