Budding footballers can train with Manchester city

Have an aspiring Ronaldo on your hands? This summer kids will have the chance to learn how to become footballing aces thanks to a special summer camp in both Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

The sessions are led by premier league champions Manchester City. Helping to develop young talent and boost confidence in children, the summer coaching sessions will bring players together to learn more about the beautiful game.

Led by City Football Schools, boys and girls between three and 18 will be able to take part in classes during the summer months.

In Dubai the summer sessions are being held at Brighton College and are run by a team of coaches who have all worked at Manchester City FC at the famous Etihad Campus in Manchester. In Abu Dhabi they will be at the Mubadala Arena in Zayed Sports City.

“We coach boys and girls and players of all abilities with a focus on expressing yourself on the pitch, skills, fun and doing things the right way," said Simon Hewitt, head coach at City Football Schools in the UAE.

“In the summer when the weather gets hotter, we don’t want to stop coaching and so we have designed these sessions for indoor facilities and combine skill work, fitness and competitive games.

“We have a total of 15 coaches in the UAE now and all of them are UEFA qualified and know and understand what Manchester City is all about when it comes to youth development.”
