TFF-They are running towards the future from Ülker Football Villages
The TFF – Ülker Football Villages that were held this year by the Turkish Football Federation with the support of Ülker in Erzurum, Isparta, Nevşehir, Sakarya, Sinop, Gümüşhane and Kocaeli for a total of 7 provinces have been concluded. The Football Villages, which hosted a total of 160 girls included in a total of 400 children between the ages of 12 and 13 from the four corners of Turkey, increased the number of graduates to 3,600.
The successful players that come out of these villages have significant contributions in enriching the infrastructure of football teams and the national team. 20 boy and 10 girl players that have emerged from the TFF-Ülker Football Villages to be transferred to the Young National and Club infrastructure teams are advancing into the future with solid steps. While a major portion of these players represent our country in big organizations such as the European Championships and the Youth Olympics some of them have even succeeded in rising to the A team of their teams.
56 trainers gave 300 hours of football training in 7 villages…
The Football Villages project within the scope of the Football for Kids program organized by the Turkish Football Federation with the support of Ülker, is preparing tiny talented football players for the future. The Nevşehir portion of the Football Villages, one of the most important programs, which has reached over 220,000 children since 2007, hosted some important guests as well as talented players. In support of the project Yıldız Holding Board of Directors Chairman Murat Ülker, TFF Football Development Director Tolunay Kafkas and other holding and federation authorities visited with the children.
During the ‘Ülker – A Happy Moment’ hour organized for the entertainment of the children, Murat Ülker said that he was very impressed by the discussion he had with the children and the training program at the facility, and emphasized that it was very important to them to invest in projects directed at children.
8 trainers in every village for a total of 56 football trainers are assigned to provide a total of 39 hours of football and 3 hours of indoor football training in each village. The children also received drama training as well as 9 hours of chess, but didn’t neglect to have fun during the Ülker Happy Moments hour. The children, who had fun in games such as sack races, dart throwing and tug of war as well as making new friends, also planted 120 new saplings within the scope of environmental awareness training.
