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 15,000 youngsters come and go.

 

The club originally struggled for facilities, and used several different training pitches; from Al Jazeera Academy to the Rugby club before finding a temporary home at Qatar Foundation in 2009. We eventually moved 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 wasn't long until we lauched a satellite centre there as well.

 

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

 

Evolution Sports has been at the forefront of the development of youth sports in Qatar and has been involved heavily with many large-scale initiatives. One such initiative was Qatar's official bid for the 2022 World Cup, where the Supreme Committee used the club as a case study to promote grassroots football in the country. We have also been active in promoting sport amongst Qatari nationals through various community schemes such as the 'GOALZ' programme; delivered in partnership with the QSL where we reached out to over 30,000 young players over a two year period.

 

The successful growth of the club has been the result of endless hours of hard work; 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 and we are proud of the family atmosphere that we have created. 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 campus will boast 2 full size football pitches as well as two indoor sports halls, indoor and outdoor swimming pools as well as basketball and netball courts, which are sure to push us to the very top of the youth coaching industry in not only Qatar, but the entire Middle East region.
