At Football Impact we celebrate Women’s Day in style. One reason is because an important part of our clients are female teams. On the other hand, in our workforce we have a large proportion of girls, performing fundamental functions.
Year after year, we have observed a that women’s football is growing. Due to its increasing professionalization, the number of teams that come to us has became bigger and bigger.
The last female team to visit our facilities was the Spanish Under-19 Women’s National Team, which recently completed a stage. But it is not the only team, some examples of women’s teams that have visited us recently:
German National Team
Austrian National Team.
Swiss National team.
Spanish U20 team.
Swedish U23 team.
Dutch U23 team.
Russian U19 team.
Irish U19 team.
Norwegian U23 team.
But it is not only that some teams attend to work with us, but Football Impact has also organized weeks of international matches. An example is the Week of Friendly Matches for Women’s NT, with up to 5 international matches in a week.
From Football Impact and Marbella Football Center we are pleased to see the rise of women’s football. For this, and much more, we can only say: “Happy International Women’s Day.”
Football Impact stages continue to be an attractive place for some of the best football clubs and federations in the world. The pleasant temperatures, even during the winter, and the lack of rain are some of the strong points of Football Impact offers.
But this good climate (average winter temperature around 13-15 degrees) would mean nothing, if it was not accompanied by the best training camps, a first-rate level of services and the possibility of playing friendly matches against big teams.
On the other hand, at Football Impact we have made sure that the effects of the pandemic do not affect our friends. With bubble concentrations and the health security protocol, all friends feel safe during their stay with Football Impact. Whether in Marbella, Benidorm, Murcia, Sotogrande, etc … the Football Impact seal is applied in all its stages.
During their stay, the players take the opportunity to get to know the area and carry out all kinds of activities. From team excursions to visiting nearby cities, to sports activities such as paddle tennis or simply walking around the city and discovering new places.
These are the teams that have visited us during the winter of 2021:
Ferencváros Torna Club.
Estonian Football Federation.
FC Lokomotiv Moscow.
FC Locomotive Tbilisi.
Spanish Football Federation, with the U19, male and female teams.
