Bakcell – the First Mobile Operator and Leading Mobile Internet Provider in Azerbaijan and Association of Football Federations of Azerbaijan announce the start of selection rounds for the third “Manchester United” Summer Soccer School.

The selection rounds will be conducted by the coaches of AFFA’s “Elite Training” project and Mick Bennett - the head coach of Manchester United Soccer School, and the main attention will be paid to testing technical skills of children. Participation in the selection rounds is absolutely free of charge.

The training will be held by coaches, delegated to Azerbaijan by the FC Manchester United. Five participants, who will demonstrate the best results during the training sessions, will spend 4 days in the city of Manchester. All costs related to this trip will be covered by Bakcell. “The Manchester United Summer Soccer School, organized by our side together with AFFA and Manchester United for two years in a row, has exceeded all of our expectations. Taking a significant interest towards this project into consideration, we have felt our responsibility to ensure that this tradition continues. Children, who’ve previously succeeded at the selection rounds, have demonstrated outstanding results during their trip to Manchester as well. Being the people’s mobile operator, we feel very proud for these results and achievements. I, personally, as well as other persons engaged in implementation of this project, are confident that the enormous potential of Azerbaijani children will serve as a solid foundation for success of our national football in the future” says Bakcell CEO Mr. Richard Shearer. General Secretary of AFFA Mr. Elkhan Mammadov: “We are very pleased to state that this is already the third time, when the qualifying rounds of the “Manchester United” Summer Soccer School are organized in Baku. The work carried out within the frames of this project for the past two years, well-organized registration, selection processes and the training sessions, the great interest of children in the project is a positive result of the works done to ensure the popularity and mass nature of football in Azerbaijan. Thus, joint efforts of AFFA, Bakcell and “Manchester United” Summer Soccer School in this direction are more than praiseworthy. At the first and second year of the project implementation, six (including one girl) and five talented kids respectively, have received an  opportunity to travel to Manchester and train at Denstone College, after demonstrating a great performance during the training sessions. They’ve also got acquainted with the “Manchester United” Football Academy and the legendary “Old Trafford” stadium.  I believe that this year’s training sessions will also draw lots of attention thanks to a high level of organization, and children with special talents and skills will be able to visit Manchester to improve their level of experience”. *** About Bakcell Bakcell, The First Mobile Operator and the Leading Mobile Internet Provider of Azerbaijan offers a variety of products for modern mobile communications customers.  Bakcell provides class leading 3G mobile internet experience in the country under the Sür@ brand name.
