Young talents have a chance to learn from the best
As an exclusive partner of Manchester United FC, Eurobank has brought one of the most prestigious soccer schools to Serbia, allowing its participants to learn from the best and to acquire practical and theoretical knowledge during the week 16-20th September.
On the occasion of the official start of the Manchester United Soccer School in Serbia, Eurobank hosts Robin van der Laan, International Head Coach of Manchester United Soccer School, and Wes Brown, a football legend from Old Trafford. This week, children from across Serbia have a unique opportunity to practice in a world-renown soccer school along with local coaches who will continue sharing their knowledge to generations to come. In addition to the professional youth, this experience is brought also to the children of Eurobank employees and clients, partners, and homes for children without parental care including SOS Dečje selo Kraljevo and Dečje selo Sremska Kamenica, as corporate social responsibility is one of the main values of both partners – Eurobank and Manchester United.
“Eurobank and Manchester United, one of the most successful European football clubs and one of the most popular global brands, since 2014 have been cooperating on the project of issuing co-branded payment cards that bring unique benefits to the cardholders. It is an honour and pleasure for us to give an opportunity to our children to practice with the best, and thus acquire world-class football knowledge and experience.” – said Slavica Pavlović, President of the Executive Board of Eurobank.
Wes Brown, a Manchester legend, commented on having the opportunity to visit Serbia for the second time thanks to the collaboration between Eurobank and Manchester United: “As a Manchester United academy graduate, I’m delighted that children from Serbia will get the chance to have this unique experience and benefit from Manchester United coaching. I am very happy to be here and grateful to Eurobank for bringing the Manchester United Soccer School to Serbia”.
„The aim of the Manchester United Soccer School is to inspire all participants to enjoy learning, playing and coaching football the ‘Manchester United Way’. We are very proud to bring the Soccer School to Serbia, as it is very important that talented youth players and coaches in Serbia are given an opportunity to learn from our experienced coaches, as well as learn from a United legend.” – said International Head Coach of the Manchester United Soccer School, Robin van der Laan.
The last day of the Soccer School will be marked by a friendly match between the young talents attending the School and their peers from the Red Star Football Club.
As a result of the financial partnership, Eurobank and Manchester United for five years already have been providing a number of benefits to the users of co-branded payment cards – payment of goods and services and cash withdrawal at ATMs in the country and abroad, contactless transactions, possibility of online payment, as well as payments in 3, 6, 9 or 12 instalments.
