FOOTBALL is an important part of life for hundreds of children in Torrevieja.
Be one a fan of Real Madrid, Barcelona or even FC Torrevieja, every player out there gives their respect to one man, the Captain of Spain and possibly the best goalkeeper in the World, Iker Casillas.
Players in Torrevieja are about to become very excited because Torrevieja’s Councillor for Sport, Olympic Gold Medal Winner Dani Plaza announced through his Twitter and Facebook page that Iker Casillas would be bringing his Football Campus to the City of Salt this summer.
The Football Campus Iker Casillas is an international project aimed at all children between six and 16, regardless of their qualities, abilities and capabilities.
The Football Campus Iker Casillas is not intended exclusively for goalkeepers, but for any position.
Each day, under the guidance of Iker Casillas himself plus professional sports coaches, children can enjoy playing their favourite sport.
No word on costs just yet but there are two courses on offer, July 3 to 9 and July 16 to 21.
According to the poster, more details can be found on , however, as we went to press, their site had not been updated to reflect this.
With just 100 places available for Campus Torrevieja, and with it taking place just days after the Torrevieja Cup, the attraction of being taught by one of Spain’s most respected sportsmen, will probably have the course selling out quickly.
