With a UEFA Euro theme for 2020, the UK’s Campioni Soccer Academy is bringing some of the biggest names in football to the best luxury family resorts in the Mediterranean. The legends, all of whom have played for their national team, along with UEFA licensed coaches who work and manage clubs and academies, are all committed to passing on their skills, tactics and experience to the next generation.

Croatia’s Sun Gardens Dubrovnik will proudly be hosting Manchester United FC’s legend Andy Cole July 13 - 17, Celtic’s midfielder Stan Petrov July 20 – 24, and Liverpool FC star Emile Heskey August 24 – 28, 2020. Additionally, former Premier League top scorer and the European Golden Shoe winner Kevin Phillips and current football manager Kevin Watson will be leading the May Half-term academy May 25-29.

‘When you see their confidence grow and see the children succeed at something you helped them achieve, it’s really rewarding,’ said Manchester United Legend Andy Cole.

The Campioni 5-day courses will develop children 6 to 15 year-olds of all abilities and will aid improvement in their technical skills, their game, their approach and decision making. Each session will have a different focus balanced out with small sided games to challenge the understanding of the topics. The week commences with a family welcome drinks reception where the legend footballer presents each child with a Campioni training kit, bag, water bottle and cap and concludes with a medal and certificate presentation.

Not forgetting the Campioni parents, there’s a chance to play alongside the professionals in a match and socialise during the warm summer evenings with the legends. Parents can also indulge by one of the three outdoor pools, relax at the awarded Spa or have a game of tennis at the Sports centre.
