Was deeply touching to hear the adoring crowd cheer whenever the Amir's picture came on the big screen, a brass band played the national anthem and then the audience went wild when HH Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad did a round in his car.
A state of the art laser show and a tremendous firework display ensued followed by the Kuwait Champions Challenge football match. A fabulous line up of some of the finest footballers in the world (including Figo, Carlos, Shvenchenko, Beckham, Nesta). Beckham scored first followed two minutes later by Kuwait's Al-Hajri. Al-Ansari took Kuwait into the lead at the 28th minute and Al-Anezi widen the lead to 3-1. International all-stars scored another at in the 60th minute shortly followed by Nasser scoring their 4th goal. A final score of 4-2 to Kuwait.
An amazing evening and a fantastic stadium for all of Kuwait to be very proud of. Bravo Kuwait.
Was delighted to learn that $200,000 went to Bayt Abdullah hospice for children.
