Build Champions with the help of MILO PH and FC Barcelona
My son Ren was introduced to football when he was in Grade 1 (6 years old) . It was taught in their P.E. class at school and he enjoyed it so much.
He loves it even though he’s not really that good in it, he just wants to have fun and kick the ball and run. It was a surprise when their school won 1st runner up at Ateneo Manila when they competed there last year.
The event was sponsored by Milo.
When I received an invite to the Milo Philippines and FC Barcelona press con, he was the one who encouraged me to attend. He was thinking that there are some football merchandises that I might get at the event hahaha.
At the event, Milo Philippines launched the Road to Barcelona – a selection camp that will scout for the next football champions and give them a once-in-a-lifetime training in Camp Nou the home stadium of FC Barcelona.
By linking with FC Barcelona, Milo Philippines looks to help build the dreams of kids by providing them access to world-class coaching and venues and inspiring them to be physically active and healthy through sports.
This year, Milo Philippines will be sending a team of 10 kids to participate in an international training camp to be held in Camp Nou. The selection criteria puts importance on the right mix of values (60%) and skill (40%) exhibited by these young athletes through the sport. FC Barcelona prides itself with five principal values that are aligned with the spirit if Milo’s brand essence of nourishing ambitions – humility, effort, ambition, respect and teamwork.
If you have kids who are into football/soccer then you might want to talk to their coaches and perhaps they might be chosen in the local selection camp happening on September 2-3 at the McKinley Hill Stadium in Taguig City. A pool of invited participants from different football communities in and around Metro Manila will undergo extensive training to be included in the official shortlist.
Two deserving members of the team will be granted an all-expense paid trip in recognition of the skills and values they show. While Milo and FC Barcelona will be granting the two kids an opportunity they would otherwise never have imagined- to train with international pros for one of the world’s most prestigious sports organizations, the remaining eight will be chosen based on the local camp ranking system.
Yes it’s time for Filipino talents to take on the world stage!
