The Winning Formula of the Ahwaz Griffins

Our success in the JSA playoffs really came down to one important factor, we were hungry. Not hungry in the sense that both the semi and the final were played at iftaar time, but hungry for victory and all the glory and recognition that comes with it. Our drive was only made more resolute by our seeding in the playoffs.

Evolution of Soccer Tech

WC PictorialHere is an interesting tech-bit on soccer, and a wonderful pictorial as well.

"Soccer may seem the least tech-dependent game there is; all that's required are feet and a ball. But even our most analog sport has benefited from technological advances as far back as the first World Cup in 1930.

JSA – May Round-up

JSA-Round-up-ReportThis week saw the Manama Titans defy all odds as they scored more than one goal and saw off Ansar 4-1!

A determined defensive performance was undoubtedly what gave the Titans their edge.  To complement their superb defence, Manama strikers finally broke out of their shell. After notching a double, one flamboyant Manama striker was quoted as saying: “I am here to silence all my critics and play football. I could play barefoot and still make defenders dizzy”. 


TRADE: Manama Titans & Kadmiya Falcons

Special Soccer Games

JSA Special EventsWhat's new and different to the regular seasons we have had in the past?

More events! Each year we are content with playing our regular league games and setting standards to win the play-offs. That remains the same this year but there are many players who would love to see more. Others would like to participate on a different level. For this very reason we have booked even more fields this year.


Team Logos!

Wicked Team LOGOS!Have you seen the new JSA team logos?

Yes yes yes! each team now has a logo. Why? well it helps create awareness and we hope it will help players remember the teams. In the past we simply had team names and there was always some confusion with remembering or associating them with the players. Now we hope to change all of that.

JSA Captains/Reps!

JSA-CaptainsAll soccer teams need a player who can lead both on and off the field for that team to have a chance at any championship.

This is the job of the team captain, and good JSA captain must command the respect of his fellow players and completely know every single play and formation. This year we have the likes of such captains - those who will be able to guide their teammates as well as kick them in the rear when necessary.
