KUWAIT CITY, Feb 4: Kuwait’s women futsal will witness the first women derby in the history of Kuwaiti soccer when Al-Arabi Club will slug it out with Al-Qadisiya at exactly 2:00 pm inside the Al-Fatat Club Hall in Khaldiya on Saturday, Feb 8. Both teams will meet again on, Feb 15.
According to a press release, this match is a historical event in Kuwait’s women soccer since the time the Women Committee started its activities in mid-2018. It is a sign of the committee’s concerted efforts to support the development of the sport, and provide necessary opportunities to women players to improve their standards.
Al-Arabi Club Manager Khalid Al-Qabandi disclosed that the club is well prepared to meet their counterparts from Al-Qadisiya.
He affirmed that the club will not handle the game with levity, especially since they are playing a league whereby each club must struggle to pick the maximum three points or at least share a point.
Al-Qadisiya Club Manager Khalid Al-Dhafiri said his club will perform well in the current league season especially since professional players will play for both clubs.
He revealed that he has been observing improvements in women football in Kuwait since the time the committee started its activities, adding that the women game will step up to the level of their men counterparts within the next five years.
