April sees FCV Academy return to Nigeria
The camps are designed to help young players in Nigeria improve their football and provide them with more opportunities to get into the professional game. The first camp will take place in Lagos and will run from the 5thto 10th April. FCV Academy coaches will then head to Abuja to host a second camp which will take place from the 12th April to the 17th. Both will be available to players between the ages of six and 18.
As well as supporting young players in the region, FCV Academy will also be providing training to Nigerian coaches, to help integrate professional training methods and drills into the area that can continue to benefit players going forward.
Following the success of the first Gladiator Soccer Camps last year, which were endorsed by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Camp Coordinator, Oluseyi Oyebode, is excited to kick on and continue to make a difference to football in Nigeria.
“Our aim is to ensure that we train the students on the basics of football as well as emphasize the need for them to marry their football skills with their academics. This part of the vision of the camp which is to ensure that we ensure continuity to give the students the chance to update their knowledge.
“We also want to ensure that those that will mentor the students in various schools are acquainted with the basics and modern trend in football”.
FCV International Football Academy Managing Director, Graham Stammer, is delighted for the academy to be returning to Nigeria and providing the opportunity for more players to come to the UK to develop their football.
“We know the Gladiator Soccer Camps will help the players with their football development and we have seen more Nigerian players attending FCV Academy in the UK to take their football to the next level.
“We look forward to seeing the talented players that attend the camps in Lagos and Abuja.”
