The team with the highest point total at the end of the tournament is crowned the 2009 Emirates Cup Champion.
“We’re gearing up for the European club soccer season, including the kickoff of Spain’s La Liga on GolTV. This high-profile tournament offers all of us soccer fans a chance to gain insight on what the upcoming season will hold for clubs and players from four top leagues,” said Enzo Francescoli, Founder & CEO of GolTV.
