My name is Blake and I have been selected by Strike Force Development to represent the Nedbank Grey College Tournament Team in Italy. Not only will I receive training from an international coach and play friendly games in Milan and Rome, but I will also attend a training camp with scouting opportunities at Chievo Verona. This is a once in a lifetime experience and I hope you can make my dream come true by contributing to my tour expenses.
A little more about Blake (from his #1 fan)...
Blake's football journey began when he was 5 years old; he came home from school and told me he wanted to play club. New to the area, I asked around and found a local club for him to join. The football bug had bitten and, as they say, the rest is history. Blake is now 17 years old and dreams of playing professionally. He has played football for both school and club teams over the years and this year took to the field as a member of his School's 1st Team. He has been selected for KZN schools' football teams for the past 3 consecutive years and recently received a school award of Full Colours for his achievements.
The Football Tour...
Blake was selected for the tour to Italy at this year's Nedbank Grey College Soccer Tournament. The tour will offer him the opportunity for international exposure; to showcase his talent and to grow as a player. The tour includes:
- A 4-Day Training Camp at Chievo-Verona Academy
- A training session and friendly game at Cimiano Calcio (AC Milan Academy)
- A friendly game against a local club in Rome
- Stadium visits to Allianz, San Siro and Olympico
- Sightseeing in all cities/towns
The cost of the tour includes flights, accommodation, meals, transport and playing kit. The value of the tour, in terms of both the sporting and cultural opportunities/enrichment, is priceless.
A personal message...
