Last January FSV Mainz 05 trained in Estepona, carrying out an 8-day stage organized by Football Impact. The Arroyo Enmedio training camps served the German team to prepare themselves along the Winter Break.
During their stay on the Costa del Sol, Football Impact organized two preparatory matches for the German team. The Dutch FC Emmen and Borussia Dortmund were its rivals. Defeat against the former and victory against the latter was the balance.
Achim Beierlorzer took over the team last November with the aim of keeping the team in the Bundesliga. The German coach arrived with the team in a low moment and after his work with FI has managed to overcome the bad streak, taking the club out of relegation positions.
Now the team is preparing to return to the competition. On Sunday the 17th they will visit the stadium of FC Köln (Cologne, another friend of FI) on the return to the Bundesliga after the stoppage caused by COVID-19.
The team needs to maintain the current line in order to stay in the highest category of German football.
