The intensive programme has been designed by LaLiga’s UEFA pro-certified coaches to give these athletes the experience of training and competing at pro-levels, developing their mental and physical strengths.

 

David Iglesias, Head Coach of du LaLiga HPC and former coach of the Real Madrid youth teams commented on the initiative saying, “We invest year- round in developing the skills of the top youth footballers across the UAE in preparation for this camp, during which we expose them to a gruelling training programme and organise competitive matches against some of the top youth teams in LaLiga. This gives these players the best exposure to professional football.  During our third season we are confident with our team’s development and look forward to a successful camp.”

 

Training for the talents kicked off with an intensive program seeing the boys training twice a day and their first match against Cadiz scheduled on 11th August followed by matches against Sevilla,  Almeria, Granada and a grand finale against Malaga CF, scheduled on 24th August.
