Celebrations were held Sunday at College of the North Atlantic - Qatar (CNA-Q) in honour of Team Al-Anabi’s achievement of winning the Asian Cup for the first time ever for Qatar.
The main administration building was packed with students and staff showing their national pride, praising the football team for its victorious 3-1 win over Japan. The crowd, waving Qatari flags, enjoyed a video compilation of highlights from Friday’s game, a cake cutting and then gathered to sign a celebratory banner in honour of the winning team. Dr. Khalifa Al Khalifa, President of College of North Atlantic-Qatar was the first to sign the banner with his congratulations.
“This is a truly historic moment for our glorious nation and in honour of our great leader, the Amir, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani. We are extremely proud of Qatar for winning the Asian Cup for the first time, and making all of us very proud,” said Dr. Khalifa Al Khalifa
Sunday’s event was a continuation of Friday night’s celebrations, when the College opened its doors for a pubic live-streaming of the match on the Auditorium’s state-of-the-art big screen. The big win comes at a time when the College has recently invested in its sport and wellness facilities, including an upgrade to the football field turf.
“Building off this success for Qatar we are putting more resources into sport activities for our student body, to prepare the next generation of leaders to be fit, strong and successful,” said Dr. Khalifa Al Khalifa
