Azerbaijani young football players to visit Manchester

The Bakcell Mobile Operator and the Association of Football Federations of Azerbaijan (AFFA) have organized a meeting with the winners of the 'Manchester United' 4th Summer Soccer School.

Five children, who have demonstrated the best results during the training sessions organized at the 'Manchester United' Summer Soccer School in Baku, were presented certificates that represent entitlement for a trip to the city of Manchester.

During the trip to the UK, which will take place December 10-15, 2016, the young talents will get acquainted with the MU club and have an opportunity to watch a live game at the stadium. All the expenses for the trip will be covered by the side of Bakcell.

“We are doing our best in order to create favorable conditions for the children at the Manchester United Summer Soccer School, which is organized annually in partnership with the AFFA and Manchester United,” the Chief Marketing and Sales Officer of Bakcell Fedja Hadzic said.

“These children are the future of Azerbaijani football and we are all very proud of them. We hope that this year, just like in the previous years, the children who travel to Manchester will properly represent Azerbaijan in the first place, and naturally their relevant football clubs," Trend reports him as saying.

'Manchester United' Summer Soccer School plays an important role in the development of children's football and promotion of grassroots football in our country,” the General Secretary of AFFA Elkhan Mammadov noted.
