The opportunity in Football Camp
An historic and glorious Premiere League Team had the desire to start a Summer Camp in Italy for the first time in its history. It was looking for a qualified Tour Operator to rely on for the entire organization with a qualitative result in terms of their history and prestige.
The solution in Football Camp
We contacted Premiere League Team’s Business Development Operations Manager and we proposed for this initiative.
With enthusiasm we collaborated and built the objectives of the Camp.
A combined program of sport, training, education and entertainment, dedicated to children between 8 and 17 years old. The young boys will live an engaging experience under the sign of sport, fun, friendship, and internationality, discovering the values of a historic Premier League team and in contact with the coaches of the youth sectors of the “whites” of England. Official language of the Camp is English.
We immediately got to work.
The most suitable accommodation was chosen to meet the client’s needs and was identified in the town of Lignano Sabbiadoro which offers fantastic sports facilities directly on the seaside.
We activated our network of suppliers for logistics and marketing activities in order to advertise the event.
Our collaborators took care of the organization taking care of every single detail.
The camp was structured as follows:
- 6 nights full board (multibed rooms)
- 15 hours of football coaching
- Interactive workshops
- Each player received in-line training kit
Premiere League team have provided FA and UEFA qualified coaches from their Academy, who, to help develop the young players, take inspiration not only from the Academy but also from the current First Team.
Premiere League team coaches were joined by our assistants, able to translate if necessary, to resolve any critical issues. The camp was organized in complete safety for each participant.
The camp was attended by 28 young athletes, both male and female, in perfect harmony with Premiere League team’s vision. The participants coming from all over Italy, were able to deal with the Anglo-Saxon sports culture by acquiring the basic principles of a true sportsman. The professionalism and passion transmitted by the Premiere League team coaches was greatly appreciated.
The boys and girls also had the opportunity to do watersport activities guided by professional instructors and had great fun in the onsite waterpark together.
