Default Milan soccer school: Affiliated with ss argentina 7/16/2010

MILAN SOCCER SCHOOL: AFFILIATED WITH SS ARGENTINA

Quote:
MILAN - The Argentina Football Sports Club, founded in 1928, has decided to support the Milan Soccer School.

The name of the club comes from the Argentina Valley in Arma di Taggia which is near Sanremo in the Ligurian region of Italy.

The team's soccer school has been running for the last two years following the death in the road accident of youth team player Matteo Bolla.

The focal point for Argentina is the highly-ranked "NINO MARTINI" youth tournament which is run by the club.

Default Friday 4 March, 2011 Milan open soccer school in Japan

Milan have become the first Italian club to open a soccer school in Japan with a view to sourcing young talent.

Quote:
It's well documented that the Asian market offers massive commercial opportunities for the world's biggest football clubs.

Hidetoshi Nakata's arrival at Perugia in 1998 blazed a trail for the likes of Yuto Nagatomo [pictured] who joined Inter in January.

Milan are following the example set by Barcelona and Valencia who have already set up academies in Japan.

“Japanese footballers are very active in Europe and the objective is to help the football of this country grow even more,” said Franco Baresi.

Milan now have 12 soccer schools open worldwide.

The latest will be based in the south of Tokyo.

Former Milan Coach Alberto Zaccheroni is currently in charge of the Japanese national team.

He helped win the Asia Cup earlier this season.
YES YES YES at the end!

Great move to open a school in Japan, they're producing lots of potential talent right now. Apparently the boom in player production is correlated to the increase in quantity of available matches to watch, mainly south american football. The Japanese coaches seem to enforce good technique, which is something that's very valuable in Serie A.

Default Saudi Arabia is AC Milan's next goal!

The rossoneri club will open a Milan Academy in the oil-rich Gulf country on January 15: the final choice was not the capital Riyadh, but Ad Dammam, a city on the Gulf coast a few kilometers from the Bahraini border.

Quote:
''It is a choice made in collaboration with the local company which will manage the soccer school and all the activities connected with the Academy,'' Michele Ferraris, product manager at Milan's Youth Programme, told ANSAmed. The project of the Milan academy is a result of collaboration with Stryx Sports Marketing, the company which obtained the licence from AC Milan to operate in Saudi Arabia.

The AC Milan initiative came obviously from soccer passion: a passion which overwhelmed Saud Bin Hussam Al Saud, one of the nephews of the Saudi King, a great fan of the rossoneri and the man who gave the initial push for the project. The academy is the first step of an important branding operation with which Milan aims at a gaining popularity of its brand in the Gulf, confirming the very strong interest for the Middle East.

The club has had for several years a ''Milan Academy'' in Cairo and another in Damascus in Syria since the beginning of September. ''Some 150 children are enrolled in the Cairo soccer school which has been working since 1994. We are very satisfied with the results obtained in collaboration with the local partner,'' AC Milan's manager explains.

The Milan stronghold in Cairo is managed by the Mikadi Group and has its headquarters in the Golf City sports centre, near the airport of the capital. The outpost yielded good results and in fact in the beginning of September a Milan Academy opened doors in Damascus.

The Syrian academy is managed by local businessman Istwani Hassan: ''For now it relies on the stadium of Damascus which the Syrian soccer federation conceded to us with readiness,'' Ferraris said.

But the Syrian project will undergo a strong impulse in mid-November when the independent Milan stronghold within the Garden City Resort, a complex which Istwani Hassan had built, will also be inaugurated in the presence of former AC Milan striker Daniele Massaro.

Milan has two Italian coaches in Egypt and Syria who coordinate the local coaches: Claudio Balesi in Cairo and Alessandro Pasquali in Damascus. But the interest for the Mediterranean led not only to the creation of the Milan Academies: together with Banca Intesa the club is planning a series of initiatives which are expected to begin from Egypt, also thanks to the recent acquisition which Banca Intesa made, buying Bank of Alexandria, which will be the local partner of the rossoneri.

''In Saudi Arabia we aim at growing the talents from the soccer school in three years,'' explains Ferraris who also pointed out the importance of the penetration of the brand. ''We are among the strongest in the Mediterranean together with Manchester United and Real Madrid, Barcelona is setting foot in the area now.''

With the matches from the English Premier League which will be broadcast only in pay-tv soon, the Gulf market will be extremely eager for Milan which is already much present on the local televisions and on Al Jazeera, where the matches of the rossoneri are commented by Cesare Maldini, former coach of the Italian national team.

It is for this reason that soon Milan will launch an Arabic version of its website, while Ancelotti's team is expected to treat themselves with a mini-camp in Dubai during the winter break.
Seems lot of plans, hope for more revenue!!!

I think most of the prospect stars would die to have a chance in Milan anyways, but its a good move none the less.

Seems like we're going all out at the gulf... Kuwait and now Ad Dammam. Seems like Galliani saw how much potential Ahmed Khalil had on FM2011

talent becomes quality under the right circumstances ...just because they don't have renowned players doesn't mean the talent isn't there

Dude, we didn't witness any talented player from the Gulf that attracted the interest of the Europe Clubs, no single one!!!

Now you told me if they get chance and been developed to produce players, then the answer is their local clubs are responsible to handle this project not the foreign clubs!

Where on the news there's something about tracking talent?

It's a school. Kids pay to go there and have training, just like Milan training camps world wide. They even let it clear at the end:

The talent is EVERYWHERE, the thing is to find it and develop it. If it were up to me Milan should have football schools in every country.

Marketing is secondary. On long term maybe, this help to improve the brand. But it's most a business pure and simple. The kids pay to be trainned.

True the talent is everywhere no doubts, but to find them, then, you need club(s) who take care of the players and establish a real environment to turn them into professionalism basics which as far as I know "Asking scooters + Reading Researches" no one do have this base unfortunately, because I heard they love football as much as we do but lack of professionalism is the main reason to drop them down there.
