Chelsea Soccer School Will Train Filipino Children
Soccer has become a popular sport in the country these past few months when the Philippine Azkals showed to their countrymen that soccer can be an exciting game.
Phil and James Younghusband were just among the mestizo players of the team and were also proud students of Chelsea Soccer School when they were just young boys.
Coach Dave Stewart of the Chelsea Soccer School Hong Kong together with Paul Kam, head of the ProEvents joined the Azkals as well as the Younghusbands in announcing the arrival of the soccer school yesterday.
“We’ve spent half of our lives there and this partnership really means a lot to us,” Phil said.
“This is a big, big thing for Philippine football. It’s like a great reunion for us, and we’re happy to share what we’ve learned in England,” James added.
“The partnership was a logical one and I’ll have to say that it is an honor for Chelsea to be able to put up the first foreign soccer school in the Philippines,” Kam said.
This is yet another great leap in the field of sports in the country. Though the soccer is not as popular as basketball, it is slowly creeping up to stardom because of the Philippine Azkals. Training young players is one of the keys to produce great soccer players in the future.
Philippines is a beautiful country with skillful and intelligent people. Beach properties for sale in the Philippines is in fact one of the most popular business ventures in here. Furthermore, foreign and local investors are also looking forward to acquire retirement homes in the Philippines as well.
The Younghusband Football Academy’s summer camp will start today and will resume on April 19, 24, 26, and May 3, 8 and 10. The finale is set at SM Mall of Asia on May 15 and will also serve as the official launch of the football school.
