3rd Edition – Barcelona Football Tryout

3rd Barcelona Football Tryout Edition

La 3ª Edición del Barcelona Football Tryout, fue un evento organizado para explorar jóvenes talentos de fútbol provenientes de todo el mundo. Se celebró del 28 de mayo al 1 de junio de 2019 en la ciudad de Olot.

En esta tercera edición acudieron 22 participantes de 15 nacionalidades diferentes: Indonesia, Estados Unidos, México, Argentina, Guinea Ecuatorial, Guinea Conakry, Rusia, Ucraina, Ecuador, Bolivia, Perú, Chile, Venezuela, Marruecos y España. Los jugadores estuvieron alojados en el Hotel La Perla (Olot) y cada día utilizaban las excelentes instalaciones del club de la ciudad, UE Olot (equipo profesional que juega en la 2ª División B Española).

During the 5 days of the tests, football clubs and agents from the area attended to observe the soccer conditions and aptitudes of the players. For this edition, we have the collaboration of two local projection trainers who already participated in the first editions such as: Jordi Arau and Joel Olivet and also with 2 new trainers who visited us to contribute their knowledge and experience: Aitor Yeto (physical trainer of the subsidiary of Girona) and Hector Simón, captain of UE Olot, and former professional player of teams such as Espanyol, Girona, Oviedo, Sabadell, among others. They were in charge of planning and directing the daily training sessions that took place every morning.

In the afternoon, the combined Football Forward moved to different scenarios in the area to be able to meet Spanish football in the first person. 3 friendly matches were played, the first against CF Sant Jaume de Llierca (UE Olot B) and the second against CEF Bosc de Tosca. The last of the friendlies was against the EU youth team Figueres.

During the event, we received the visit of several related people in the world of football (coaches, representatives and sports directors) who made presentations to give basic and important information to our players.
