The Academy arrives in Sao Paulo
On 23 and 24 September, trials were held at the Academy in Sao Paulo, attracting over 200 kids looking to experience Paris Saint-Germain's savoir-faire and meet the Academy's official coaches. Under the supervision of all the Sao Paulo Academy's technical staff, the young players were tested in three phases: overall co-ordination; technical tests consisting of passing, control and shots; and tests in game conditions to wrap it up.
It was a great weekend for all the participants and the parents who came to watch. Additional sessions were held yesterday on the magnificent pitches for the kids who didn't get a chance participate in the first weekend of trials.
Keep an eye out for the impending official launch of the Paris Saint-Germain Academy football school in Sao Paulo!
