Puerto opens its doors to young soccer players from Cantón 

PAGE 38 PUERTO OPENS

Fourteen children of the CD Tenerife Academy in China, along with their technicians, have been experiencing ten days of fun and training on the island.

The youngsters all belong to the CD Tenerife Academy in Shenzhen, in the province of Cantón and are in the categories of juvenile and children (ten-14 years old).

Councillors of sports and institutional relations, Javier González and Pedro González, respectively, received in the El Peñón Stadium the young players, accompanied by Roberto Mickel, CEO of the Academy, Liang Yueming, coach of the Academy, and Sesé Rivero, director from the base area of CD Tenerife, who valued this great experience.

For Javier González, having young promising Asian football players from the CD Tenerife Chinese Academy in Puerto de la Cruz is “a unique opportunity to make the tourist city known as a top-level sports tourism enclave, as we not only have sports facilities for football, but also the hotel infrastructure necessary to accommodate any team.”

The Academy of CD Tenerife in Shenzhen was founded on October 16, 2017, when Miguel Concepción and Roberto Mickel signed the agreement that would unite the Tenerife entity with International Football Academy HK (IFAHK). In turn, on April 23, it began its work with children between four and 18 years, creating the structure of the academy of technology and promoting the CD Tenerife methodology and competition values, but with fair play. A few months later, on September 25, 75 children, between four and six years old, enjoyed a day of initiation into football language, as well as family activities.

With this new activity, CD Tenerife continues to expand in the city of Shenzhen, allowing the CD Tenerife brand to be known in the Asian giant through its Academy.
