Gulf Women soccer tourney kicks off at GUST

The first Gulf university soccer tournament for females kicks off at the Gulf University for Science and Technology (GUST) in the Mishref neighborhood. The three-day gathered ladies’ football teams from the various universities of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) member countries, said advisor to GUST Chancellor Afaf Rukhayis 1. “GUST is represented by two teams while the Kingdom of Saudi Arabian and the Kingdom of Bahrain are represented by one team each,” she told reporters.

“Out of commitment to its social role, besides the academic one, GUST seeks to promote female sports in Kuwait and in the Arabian Gulf region through organizing and patronizing such competitions,” Al-Rakhis pointed out. She added that women’s sports reflect the social and cultural advancement of a country, voicing hope that the ongoing tournament would be a success and prepare the ground for more female sports activities in the future.
