Qatar National Sport Day - 2016

On Qatar National Sports Day on 9th February, the QFA and Qatar Shell hosted the Koora Time Run to Win, an all-day football match which will be tracked using STATS SportVU® technology. Featuring over 650 young players who will rotate in waves, the match is not about who wins or loses, but who takes the most steps and burns the most calories. Every player’s movement will be tracked by Prozone, with players being substituted on and off after completing either 10 minutes or a certain number of steps.
