Dubai, UAE – 15 May 2018 – Recognizing the value of the du LaLiga High Performance Centre (HPC) in discovering top football talents across the nation and developing them in preparation for professional football careers nationally and internationally, the du LaLiga HPC will be expanded next season to younger age groups and will include Abu Dhabi teams in addition to the Dubai teams across all categories: U18, U16, U14 and the newly added U12.

 

The announcement comes as the LaLiga scouts made their final selection to determine the top footballers across the nation for the 2017-2018 season of du Football Champions who will earn a coveted place at the highly acclaimed du LaLiga HPC following an extensive 3-week trial conducted across Dubai and Abu Dhabi

 

The nationwide talent search extended to more than 6,000 aspiring footballers who took part in duFC’s UAE Schools and Streets Cups, between November 2017 and April 2018.  Players have been selected both for new teams in Abu Dhabi and for existing teams in Dubai. 

 

Commenting on the final selection of talents from the third season of du Football Champions Fernando Sanz, LaLiga Director General in MENA and Head of International Projects, said, “In a short two years since we began developing talents at the du LaLiga High Performance Centre, we are already witnessing the development of players that have the skill set, focus and stamina to catch the attention of LaLiga Clubs as well as national teams and international clubs.  With the expansion to Abu Dhabi and the addition of a U12 team squad, we are confident that we will be producing a pipeline of the world’s best players in the coming years.”

 

The country’s finest footballers from all the corners of the UAE showcased their best football skills for the opportunity to be selected by LaLiga scouts throughout duFC to earn the chance to pursue their dreams for a pro-football career.

 

Selected talents in the U16 category will travel to Spain in August together with the selected talents from the U18 category, were they will all participate in an intensive 3-week training camp and play competitive matches against top LaLiga clubs, with the opportunity to be scouted by LaLiga clubs.
