Top coaches from UK-based FCV International Football Academy are expected in Nigeria for the 2nd FCV Gladiator Camp with the sole aim of identifying talents among students at the one-week clinic taking place at Grange School, Lagos from April 1 to 5.

According toHead of Marketing at FCV Academy, Sam Nicholls, top outstanding players would be selected for scholarships at the academy in the UK while the participants at the camp would be taught the basics of the sport while admitting that some Nigerians have been part of the academy in the UK.

Nicholls said: “The camp will be unique as it will provide participants the opportunity to receive elite level coaching from experienced coaches and former professional footballers in England, as well as hear from our Head of Admission what FCV International Football Academy offers to Nigerian students and the opportunities available.
On the gains of the camp, he said: “Nigerian students participating at the camp will get the opportunity to develop their football skills and techniques under the guidance of our UEFA qualified coaches as well as gain tactical knowledge and awareness that will allow them to take their game to the next level.

“This camp provides the participants with the opportunity to improve and develop their football skills and knowledge through elite coaches’ sessions delivered by our coaching team. It also provides the participants with an insight into what life is like at FCV International Football Academy and how they could benefit by enrolling with us and taking the next steps in their football development,” Nicholls said.

The Briton also acknowledged Nigerian football culture. “We know that Nigeria has a fantastic football culture, with many of its top talents playing in Europe’s top leagues, and particularly the Premier League, as well the Super Eagles regularly playing in the World Cup and competing for the Africa Cup of Nations.
“We are expecting to see some of the exciting young talented footballers that Nigeria has to offer and look forward to having the opportunity to coach them, as well as share with the participants the opportunities that our academy has already provided to young Nigerian footballers and continues to do so,” he said.

On the continued partnership with Dynaspro, he said: “The partnership allows us the opportunity to work with talented Nigerian footballers. Whether that is Nigerian footballers coming over to England and joining our academy, or us coming to Nigeria and putting on the FCV Gladiator Camp. We look forward to continuing to develop our partnership with Dynaspro and providing young Nigerian footballers with a platform to excel.”
