History

Evolution Sports began 2007 with just four boys and a few old worn out footballs. The aim was to enable youngsters from all social and cultural backgrounds the ability to enjoy playing organised football in Qatar. Years later and we have evolved into Qatar's largest multi-sports coaching provider which has seen over 10,000 youngsters come and go.

 

The club originally struggled for facilities, and used several different training pitches in the early days; from Al Jazeera school to the old Doha College hard court to the Rugby club before finding a temporary home at Qatar Foundation in 2009. We eventually moved back to Doha College in September 2011 when a brand new state of the art 3G training surface was installed. In 2013 Doha College opened up a second venue in West bay and it didn't take us long to move in there as well.

 

In the last couple of years, the club has undergone tremendous changes following the transition from part-time to full-tme coaches and administrators. As of September 2016 the club has over 30 full-time employees with vast experience in sports coaching. 

 

The club has been at the forefront of the development of youth sports in Qatar and has been involved heavily with many government initiatives including Qatar's official bid for the  2022 Soccer World Cup. We have also been active in promoting sport amongst Qatari nationals through various different schemes including 'Search for a Star' and the 'GOALZ' programme in partnership with the QSL where we reached out to over 30,000 young players over a two year period.

 

The growth of the club has been the result of a lot of hard work; blood, sweat and tears. But most of all the support of our members who continue to amaze us with their patience and loyalty. Everything that we do at Evo is done with our members best interests in mind. The next few years promise to be the most exciting yet as we prepare yet again to move to a new facility in 2019. The new Doha College building will boast 2 full size football pitches as well as two indoor sports halls, 50 meter indoor pool accompanied by a 25 meter outdoor pool as well as rooftop basketball and netball courts are sure to push us to the very top of the youth coaching industry in not only Qatar, but the entire Middle East region.
