Abu Dhabi: Season 4 of the du Football Champions, in partnership with LaLiga and home of the UAE Schools and Streets Cups, is days away and over 150 teams in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain have already signed up to battle for national glory.

duFC’s crucial role in discovering talent, scouting the best players across the country and providing them with professional international standard training continues to produce life-changing opportunities for players in the UAE.

This year, duFC takes its on-the-pitch platform to new heights by expanding through du Talents – the Middle East’s first digital scouting platform.

Thousands of players have registered on du Talents where they will create their profiles, upload videos of themselves and build their CV as scholars and athletes thereby showing the best of themselves to scouts and coaches around the region and the world.

duFC begins this Saturday in Zayed Sports City in Abu Dhabi and at Al Ain Club Al Maqam Branch in Al Ain. The tournament kicks off the season’s football festival ahead of the FIFA World Club Cup and the Asia Cup.

Abdelwahed Juma, EVP Brand & Communications, du, said: “We are very excited to kick off a new season of duFC and witness the overwhelming excitement that the yearly tournament generates for youth and the whole community across the UAE.

“Thousands will be participating in the Abu Dhabi and Al Ain leg of the nationwide tournament, and signing up to du Talents, for a chance to be discovered and scouted by the best clubs and national teams.”

Speaking on the football frenzy that is taking the nation by storm, he added “I would encourage everyone to go and watch a live game, it’s a great experience and there’s much for aspiring players to learn from the professionals.”

Fernando Sanz, Director General, LaLiga MENA, said “It’s great to see so many players coming out to play football. Year on year we see the level of play improve which is exactly what a competition like duFC is supposed to achieve.
