The eighth Allianz Junior Football Camp (AJFC) is taking place from August 25-30, 2016, on the training grounds of FC Bayern Munich. A total of 73 football enthusiasts aged 14 to 16 from 30 different countries are part of the unforgettable experience. New countries represented are Argentina, Belgium and Saudi Arabia. Due to the numerous qualified applications from Asia, a regional pre-selection camp was organized in Indonesia in July.
“Over the past eight years, the Allianz Junior Football Camp has received over 450,000 applicants. We have welcomed more than 500 participants from 35 countries in total. The Camp has long become a successful program for young talents from around the world,” says Oliver Kraus, Global Sponsoring Manager at Allianz SE. “Our participants have the opportunity to gather once in a lifetime experiences both on and off the football field. Allianz is proud to be a part of this adventure and to help these young athletes fulfil their dreams and goals.”
For a total of six days, the 73 lucky boys and girls will be trained by the FC Bayern youth coaches. They will not only help them improve their technical skills, but also their mental strength and team spirit.
In addition to the intensive football training and tournament, the Allianz Junior Football Camp participants are offered an entertaining program, including a behind the scenes tour of the Allianz Arena and a visit to the opening Bundesliga match FC Bayern Munich vs. SV Werder Bremen.
One of the highlights for the football enthusiasts is meeting their FC Bayern Munich heroes Xabi Alonso, Franck Ribéry, Arjen Robben and Renato Sanches, who seek to inspire the 14 girls and 59 boys to trust one another and to pursue their goals with courage and perseverance.
As in the previous camps, the boys and girls, including two teenagers from an SOS Children’s Village, will be training together. Allianz has been a global partner of the SOS Children’s Villages since the beginning of the year in hopes to provide young individuals with better opportunities and networks.
