Doha, 5 April 2018. In response to several articles that were recently published quoting Aspire Academy Director General Ivan Bravo speaking at the „Bilbao International Football Summit“ in Spain, Aspire Academy wants to clarify the following.
“By no means have I confirmed as published that Qatar will participate in the Copa America but simply that in line with recent news that related to the possibility that several teams from Asia would be invited, such opportunity could happen and would be unique to continue preparing a national team for the future. From Aspire we don’t have any information nor direct participation in such topics which are the responsibility of the Qatar Football Association“, said Ivan Bravo, Director General of Aspire Academy.
