Bayern Munich star Philipp Lahm has described Aspire as “a great place to prepare for the rest of season” following their opening  training session.

Lahm wasn’t the only player to acknowledge Aspire’s great facilities. “The facilities at Aspire are arguably the best in the world.  We had a great time here last year,” said French international Franck Ribery.


With the Bundesliga in winter break, the league leaders are in Doha and are based at the Aspire Zone. “I had been to Doha once in the past even though I don’t exactly remember when,” said coach Jupp Heynckes. “Our players who camped here last year, spoke highly of the facilities and we want to make the most of them yet again.“
