Juan Pablo Ortega, a Mexican player of SOCCER Stages program, departed last week heading to his native country, where he will take part in along two weeks tryouts Tigres and Pachuca, two of the biggest teams of Mexican soccer and currently members of the Mexican Primera Division.
A letter from the AFFA (Azerbaijan Football Federation Association) arrived at our Head Office in Barcelona the last April the 1st. The national team requires our player Samir Musaev to do a 2- weeks training camp with the U19 National football team in Baku, Azerbaijan. It is the first call for Samir.
At WOSPAC it’s usual for us to say goodbye, players are coming and leaving, and this week something has come to an end as well. Our Hungarian intern, Bálint Szakács, student from the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences has finished his stay in Barcelona, working in the Marketing & Communication Department in the last 2 and a half months.
In the past few weeks you could already hear about Kenni Thompson, who is taking part in our WOSPAC Stages program, because she has had some really intense and successful weeks behind.
This week we’ve had the pleasure to welcome back Marco Scarpelli, who spent the last season with us taking part in the annual program of WOSPAC Stages. He’s come back for a couple of days to Barcelona to visit WOSPAC and his old friends he would never forget. He’s been the first and only (so far) Italian player of the WOSPAC family, but how did everything start?
At WOSPAC we know great stories related to the great question… Daddy, can I go and play football to Barcelona? In that moment, like a mother said to us, she was shocked and she felt that her body was freezing!!!
The excellent news about Kenni Thompson, player of the WOSPAC Stages program, goes on. If a few days ago Kenni made her debut with the U-16 Catalan Team, this past weekend made it with the first team of Sant Gabriel, who plays in the women’s second division, against Igualada and the debut could not be more spectacular.
The third day at the MIC began with great enthusiasm by our players. The youth teams, faced the first decisive game of the final round eager to win it to continue his run at the tournament, but luck was elusive in both cases.
After a good first day for WOSPAC teams, began the second day with two matches on the horizon that would decide the future of our teams in the tournament. In the morning our U-19 teams faced FC Central Los Angeles and FC Istres respectively, both in the field of Cassà de la Selva.
The big day arrived; the first competition day at MIC has already started. The three WOSPAC Teams, two U-19 teams and one U-14, enjoyed their first matches at the venues of the Costa Brava showcasing their work during this year at the academy.
Today, was the presentation of the #MIC2016 where three WOSPAC teams take part in one of the best competitions of football in the world. At the presentation held in Estadi Montilivi of Girona CF, our representatives were the youth players Tandasi Fombutu (Cameroon), Samir Musaev (Russia) and Gavin Euksuzian (USA). Best of luck guys in the MIC!
