Two major newspapers covered the exact same event: Welcoming back our Kuwaiti National Football Team (reserves).

AlRai wrote that there was no proper attendance by the officials, nor the football fans, and most of the people gathered at the airport welcoming the players back, were actually the players’s families.

AlRai Newspaper:
لم يحظ لاعبو منتخب الكويت الرديف لكرة القدم بطل دورة غرب اسيا بالاستقبال اللائق عقب عودته للبلاد ظهر يوم امس رغم عودته الى سلك درب الالقاب بعد ان حاد عنه لمدة 12 عاما وتحديدا منذ فوزه بلقب بطولة كأس الخليج الرابعة عشرة في البحرين عام 1998، حيث لم يشارك في الاستقبال سوى نائب مدير الهيئة العامة للشباب والرياضة جاسم يعقوب و نائب رئيس اتحاد كرة القدم (غير الشرعي) هايف المطيري و الشاعر الشيخ دعيج الخليفة و رجل الاعمال وليد الجاسم و جماهير قليلة اغلبها من ذوي اللاعبين.

AlWatan on the other hand had a completely different experience and reporting. They thought that our national football team got an unprecedented reception, something Kuwait haven’t witness nor known before yesterday’s event. All the officials, fans , ect.. were there.

AlWatan Newspaper:
شهد مطار الكويت الدولي ظهر امس استقبالا لم يسبق له مثيل لابطال الازرق الرديف عقب عودته الى البلاد قادما من العاصمة الاردنية عمان بعد ان حقق انجازا كبيرا بفوزه بكأس غرب آسيا السادسة على حساب المنتخب الايراني صاحب الصولات والجولات في هذه البطولة.
وكانت قاعة التشريفات قد اكتظت بكبار المسؤولين عن الرياضة يتقدمهم عضوا الهيئة العامة للشباب والرياضة محمد المسعود وجاسم يعقوب وامين سر اللجنة الاولمبية عبيد زايد ونائب رئيس اتحاد الكرة هايف الديحاني وسكرتير عام الاتحاد سهو السهو والاعضاء مانع الحيان وطلال المعصب وجماهير غفيرة غصت بهم الشوارع المؤدية الى المطار واستقبلت تلك الجماهير ابطال الازرق بالاحضان والورود والاهازيج وحملت بعض اللاعبين على الاكتاف تقديرا للانجاز الذي حققوه كما قام الاتحاد بتنظيم حفل مميز صاحبته اغان وطنية واهازيج شعبية اعادت للاذهان العصر الذهبي للكرة الكويتية.

You can’t have 180 degrees different opinions about an attendance of an event. What do you think?

Thanks Mohammed

    Al Watan is a nonsense newspaper. they make things up. I know this because of a story they published which was filled with lies. I knew the real event and all they did was falsify all the information to try to make an interesting story.

    I do not trust them. They are the worst paper in Kuwait.

    I’m going with Al-Rai’s coverage.

    Al-Watan says that qa3at eltashreefat was full of people. But the pictures clearly show the players arriving from the regular arrival exit.

    It goes to show that Al-Watan thinks it’s readers are stupid… totally disrespectful! And what does that really say about the newspaper itself? That it’s a bad newspaper only attracting “stupid” people.

    Both are big fat liars. Attendence was average, normal, expected, etc.
    Both are part of the battle on KFA.
