Major insurer teams up with football super power

Major insurer teams up with football super power Today marks the close of the eighth Allianz Junior Football Camp – with the giant of the insurance world teaming up with one of football’s true super powers, FC Bayern Munich.

The camp took place at the training grounds of the German champions with a total of 73 football enthusiasts aged 14-16 from 30 different countries taking part in an unforgettable experience.

“Over the past eight years, the Allianz Junior Football Camp has received over 450,000 applicants,” said Oliver Kraus, Global Sponsoring Manager at Allianz SE. “We have welcomed more than 500 participants from 35 countries in total. The camp has long become a successful program for young talents from around the world. Our participants have the opportunity to gather once in a lifetime experiences both on and off the football field.”

For a total of six days, the 73 lucky boys and girls were trained by the FC Bayern youth coaches and offered an entertaining program, including a behind the scenes tour of the Allianz Arena and a visit to the opening Bundesliga match pitting FC Bayern Munich against SV Werder Bremen.

One of the highlights for the football enthusiasts was meeting their FC Bayern Munich heroes Xabi Alonso, Franck Ribéry, Arjen Robben and Renato Sanches, who seek to inspire the 14 girls and 59 boys to trust one another and to pursue their goals with courage and perseverance.

As in the previous camps, the boys and girls, including two teenagers from an SOS Children’s Village, trained together.
