During the three-day competition, ACK teams competed against teams from various countries including Italy, Slovakia, France and Spain. The ACK Futsal team qualified for the semifinals after a competitive game with a Serbian university.Commenting on his experience, Abdullah Al Yaqout, ACK Futsal Team Captain and Business student, said “I am very proud of my team for qualifying against strong and skilled foreign universities. Being part of this journey helped build us individually and as a team.”

“Besides competing, the students participating in the trip were also given the chance to explore Croatia to widen their horizons. Different activities, both within Kuwait and internationally, are important to help students learn life lessons and refine their skillsets.” said Basel Dana, ACK Student Life Manager.
