LaLiga is set to introduce the LaLiga Club series programme to their football school curriculum in India in association with India On Track (IOT).
Students of LaLiga Football Schools will get an opportunity to understand the technical and institutional session with experts from LaLiga clubs, such as Real Betis, Sevilla FC, and Celta de Vigo over a span of six weeks starting from October 9, 2020.
The virtual sessions will feature informational topics such as the history of the club, legacy, club rivalries. It will also focus on developmental aspects, such as the youth academy system, scouting processes, and player evaluation.
As a part of this programme, the students will also get an opportunity to participate in technical topics such as match analysis, strength and conditioning sessions, and interactive sessions with the academy coaches. LaLiga Club series will be available for all the LaLiga Football Schools students in the country across the age group of 5 to 18 years.
Real Betis will host the first session on October 9 while Celta de Vigo and Sevilla will have sessions on October 16 and October 23, respectively.
LaLiga’s historic grassroots football development programme in India always expects to bring enthusiasm for the sport amongst the students with new and exciting projects.
Since the pandemic has stopped programmes at ground level, La Liga Schools and LaLiga clubs are using the web platform to engage and introduce new activities to build a greater connection with the football fans in India.
Jose Antonio Cachaza, Managing Director at LaLiga India, said, “India has been our top priority market, and the response we have received for our initiatives is overwhelming. We have a holistic approach aimed at achieving overall sporting excellence through various training and development programmes. With LaLiga Club Series, we look to familiarize young fans across India with the personalities of different football clubs, and enhance their knowledge of the ecosystem of the sport.”
