Qatar Football Association Launches New Q League Tournament Consisting Of 18 Clubs
Published September 20, 2013
The Qatar FA launched a new tournament Tuesday, "declaring it to be another step forward in the development of football in the country," according to GULF TIMES. QFA Dir of Competitions Hamad al-Mannai said, "The introduction of the 'Q League' creates another competitive opportunity for young players of the nation, which can enhance and support what we're doing with the Qatar Stars League." The competition "will comprise 18 clubs, including 14 from the Reserve League and four from the Second Division." The competition "will be played on league format with the top two promoted to the QSL, while the 13th and 14th placed teams in the QSL will be relegated to the Q League" (GULF TIMES, 9/18).
