With Arsenal Football Club deciding not to continue with their global Soccer School Partnerships, including Oman and the MeNA Region, Mosaic Sports has decided to launch the Juventus Academy in Oman in the coming days.
According to a press statement issued by Mosaic Sports LLC on Tuesday, the organisation ‘will be starting a new and exciting adventure with Juventus Football Club’ from July 1.
Mosaic Sports has been associated with Arsenal Soccer School in Oman since 2009. Arsenal Soccer School was the first organised football school in Oman and has trained a cross section of children in different age groups and abilities over the years.
“As of May 2017, the Board of Directors at Arsenal Football Club U.K. have taken a strategic decision regarding their international partnerships wherein they have decided not to continue with the Soccer School Partnerships globally which include Oman and the MENA Region.The decision that Arsenal Football club has taken to rationalise its soccer school model is of no reflection of Mosaic Sports LLC’s performance during the franchise partnership and the way they have helped grow the Arsenal Soccer School in Oman,” the statement said.
“Mosaic Sports have been talking to a number of Premier league, Spanish and Italian clubs over the last couple of months and although they showed interest, the decision to move to Juventus Academy was made easy by their professionalism and opportunities they offer for children, with their pathways into education and opportunities at the club.”
“They also understand the personal relationship the coaches have with the children and parents and insisted that they were part of the transition.Over the summer Mosaic Sports coaches will be staying in Turin, Italy, to immerse themselves in the Juventus coaching techniques,” the statement added.
“The new term will open as Juventus Academy on September 10. Juventus Academy will conduct training session from two locations: Muscat International School in Al Qurum and A’Soud Global School in Seeb,” the statement said.
