In February 2016, Coerver® Coaching signed a Youth Football Global Partner agreement with SL Benfica, one of the world’s most admired and successful professional clubs. Through this partnership, selected Irish Coerver® players have the opportunity to be fully integrated into the Benfica Academy for 1 month elite player training programs. Coerver® Coaching will also collaborate with Benfica on projects to improve the football experience of Irish young players further.
On a daily basis the players get the full Benfica Academy experience and play up to 8 matches against top-class opponents. The players are handled everyday by the clubs academy coaches and the Benfica Lab to help provide a true gauge of where they are in their development.
“The signing of this agreement with Coerver® Coaching will allow Benfica to bring a top coaching methodology to further develop our club academy, and to bring Coerver® players to be inspired and further developed at our club.”
