The TFF-Ülker Football Villages opened their doors for the sixth time this year in preparation to host 560 children, of which 160 are girls. In the seven football villages that were opened in Erzurum, Isparta, Nevşehir, Sakarya, Sinop, Gümüşhane and Kocaeli children in the, 12-13 age group develop their talent as well as themselves.

The new training period has begun in the Football Villages project, made possible through the cooperation of the Turkish Football Federation and Ülker for the first time in 2007. Kids from different provinces unite under the roof of football and within the scope of this project that aims to contribute to their social-cultural-personal development and add to their happy moments, 160 girls and 400 boys in the 12-13 age group will be undergoing training.

The training program organized by experts in the TFF-Ülker Football Villages focuses on football, but also offers creative drama, chess, environmental awareness, first aid, nutrition and indoor football training. In the Football Villages, at which students are provided with balanced nutrition education by GAV (The Sabri Ülker Food Research Institute Foundation), the ‘Respect for Diversity’ play workshop is directed by the Community Volunteers Foundation.

In addition to developing their football talents, tiny athletes discover the spirit of brotherhood, chivalry and solidarity that is in the core of football. 3,600 children have been given the opportunity to do sports and develop their talents so far at the Football Villages.
