Two Saudi teens will represent Saudi Arabia at the six days Allianz Junior Football Camp in Munich, Germany set for Aug. 7-12.
The two lucky kids, Abdul Malik Kareem, 15, from Riyadh, and Abdullatif Al Abdul Karim, 15 , from Al Zulfi, were chosen for this once in a lifetime experience after Allianz Saudi Fransi Cooperative Insurance Company activated the campaign locally for the second year in a row in February 2013.
Speaking on this occasion, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, executive board chairman, FC Bayern München, said: “Because of our own focus on youth development and our strong fan base globally, we know very well how powerful initiatives like the Allianz Junior Football Camp can be in sharing and inspiring the next generation of young footballers. Every year the Camp gets bigger and even more successful and we’re especially delighted and proud to be helping our long-term partners, Allianz, celebrate the fifth anniversary in 2013.”
The camp, which comes as a result of a premium partnership between the Allianz Group, Champions League 2013 winners and German record holder FC Bayern, aims to teach young kids aged 14-16 about the importance of football and how it can help them hone their physical, mental and social skills.
A statement released by the local office of Allianz said that 75 kids from all over the world will have a once in a lifetime chance to train at the FC Bayern Munich training grounds in Munich, meet star players like Franck Ribery, Arjen Robben, Thomas Muller, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Phillip Lahm. In addition to that the participants will attend the Bundesliga opening match at the famous Allianz Arena, go on a sightseeing tour in Munich as well as participate in many cultural activities to learn more about their new friends.
By participating in this Allianz Group initiative, Allianz Saudi Fransi supports its core idea of bringing societies and communities together by uniting children around a shared passion, which in this case, is football, added the statement.
