Soccer has always gained the privilege of being one of the most well-loved sports in the world. It has a massive fanbase that grows every single day. Countries become obsessed with soccer during the FIFA World Cup, and teams try to win the honor of winning the tournament by training with not only their bodies but also with their hearts and souls. Soccer Legends go on to leave their marks in the world of sports through sheer determination and talent. These legends include not just the athletes but those behind them as well. The trainers and coaches spend just as much blood, sweat, and tears to help the athletes realize their potential and reach their goals. One such individual, looking to make his mark in soccer as a professional coach and trainer, is Yasser Siddiqui.
Born and raised in Muscat, Oman, Yasser showed an interest in athletics from a young age, and though it wasn’t his first option for a career choice, he did reach that point where he worked for what he perceived as his true calling. His parents were always encouraging of his interest and supported him in his many endeavors during the initial years of his professional life.
They say change starts from home, and that is exactly what Yasser did. With the help of his friend, he was able to set up Ayta Sports in New Delhi, India. They worked on buying a semi-professional soccer club by the name of Delhi Chargers FC and began to train them on a professional level.
While helping the athletes train, Yasser helped to raise funds from outside sources and built Sportage Arena. This arena is the first of its kind in India, where facilities are available day and night, and include natural pitches of 11v11 and 7v7, and an artificial turf of 5v5.
Once he was satisfied with the impact he had on soccer in India, Yasser set his sights on North America, specifically Canada. He believed that there was a lack of coaches and trainers in the area as the sport was still gaining momentum in the continent. The FIFA World Cup of 2022 certainly helped speed things along, and with the future World Cup being held in North America, Yasser knew it was the perfect chance for him to get on the bandwagon and make his mark in the world of sports.
Once he landed in Canada, Yasser set to work immediately, ordering the latest equipment and technology necessary to help train future soccer athletes. He believes that Canada should not be behind any country when it comes to adapting new training techniques pertaining to soccer.
Yasser wants to help train athletes so that they can become a part of the national team. He loves working with kids and hopes that he has a profound impact on their lives that will help them achieve excellence and the drive they need to realize their full potential as amazing athletes.
