Ooredoo’s coaching clinic initiative with Paris Saint-Germain FC has rolled out across the MENA region over the past month, delighting and engaging young footballers with sessions in Tunisia and Qatar.
The ‘Paris Saint-Germain Academy brought to you by Ooredoo’ went to Tunisia in November and took place in Doha, Qatar twice in 2014.
In total, more than 600 young people aged between six and sixteen had the chance to participate in technical training sessions led by Paris Saint-Germain coaches and supported by UEFA-qualified coaches in the two countries.
The Academy sessions in Tunisia included young people selected by the Tunisian ‘Sport for All’ Federation, to ensure that the benefits were felt in traditionally under-served communities.
The programme will continue across the region in the coming months, with clinics planned for Oman, Kuwait and Algeria.
Dr Nasser Marafih, group CEO, Ooredoo, said, “Sport makes a difference, both physically, by providing healthy activity and emotionally, by giving children an area of focus and discipline. Ooredoo works hard to support the aspirations of young people across our markets, and our initiative with Paris Saint-Germain has delivered a real and positive impact on their lives.”
The ‘Paris Saint-Germain Academy brought to you by Ooredoo’ offers education and motivation for aspiring young football players, and helps them in a range of key areas, including match preparation and effective training methods. Children learn key skills, including tactical and defensive playing, stamina training and the basic rules of football.
