MAINZ 05 INSPIRES IN NIGERIA
In cooperation with our partners 1.FSV Mainz 05 and Vandyke FC the second training camp of the 05er football school in Africa took place from August 26th to September 7th. During the two weeks a total of 75 children were trained, who visibly enjoyed the presence of Mainz 05 as a representative of the Bundesliga.
In addition to extensive daily training sessions, which were full of commitment and fun for all participants, the second edition of the 05er football school also experienced an outstanding supporting program, including a big viewing party for the Bundesliga match between FC Bayern Munich and 1.FSV Mainz 05. Besides a visit of the chairman of the local River State Football Association and the former chairman of the technical committee of the Nigerian Football Association, Chris Green, several media representatives were guests during the two weeks.
On the day of departure, a spontaneous training session with 80 participants was held on the grounds of the former national stadium in Lagos.
