Qatar Stars League striving to meet higher standards: Abbassi

The Qatar Stars League is embarking on new strategic developments with plans to rebuild the club’s operations, hire players and coaches and raise it to higher standards. This was revealed by Ahmed Khellil Abbassi, Executive Director of Competition and Soccer Development at QSL.
The new action plan is also expected to reduce the number of QSL teams from the current 12 teams in the 2023-24 season to 10 teams. QSL is also in the process of investigating the club’s recruitment policy and forming a Central Scout Team (CST) to guide the club with the new policy.
“When it comes to football and culture, we want the highest quality to attract more fans to the game. We need a more professional club, and today we have one of the best team leagues in Asia and we are proud of it. I’m thinking, “says Abbasi.
“Our vision was to be one of the best leagues in Asia on and off the pitch. Without a doubt, we are now one of the best league nations in Asia, but professionalism and football standards. I want to be better in that respect.
“Looking at 2022, this year is a special year as the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 will be held and the World Cup football standards are the highest, so this year we plan to achieve the highest level of facilities. It is one of the best megasports in the country and we believe it is the best in the world. This momentum wants to continue to play the highest quality matches after the World Cup. High quality football entertainment I want to build, “Abbassi explains.
From the 2023-24 season, the QSL Top Division will be a problem for 10 teams and the club will sign a new participation contract. “We’ve been working on strategies on how to transform the league for the past few years. We want players, coaches, competitiveness, quality matches, and an increase in the number of fans. It’s worth the money. We hope QSL will be a more vibrant league that offers high quality and competitive football entertainment. “
The establishment of CST, which will begin functioning later this year, will help clubs align their philosophies and bring talent to meet their requirements. “For the past few years, the turnover rate for foreign players and coaches has been very high, so we are giving a warning signal because we think we need to change at this point. We educate the club. We will support, support and address these changes. “
CST helps clubs scout top talent from around the world to come to Qatar. It will also change the outlook by becoming a seller’s league rather than just a buyer’s league.
