Aurubis Bulgaria and Ludogorets Children-Youth Academy continue their cooperation in supporting sports and young talents

February 28 2017, Sofia – Aurubis Bulgaria and Ludogorets Children Youth Academy have agreed to continue their initiative "Aurubis training summer camp", which they initiated last year for the first time. The initiative is part of the cooperation between Aurubis and one of the most successful Bulgarian football clubs in the recent years - PFC Ludogorets, which already lasts for four years. Under the initiative ‘Aurubis training summer camp 2017’, football talents from across the country will have the opportunity to train at the most modern sport facilities in Bulgaria. It is a great opportunity and a challenge for any child who wants to be involved in football. This year 120 children from football academies across the country, divided into different age groups, will be trained for five days at the ‘Nest of the Eagles’ under the guidance of the coaches of the football academy of the acting football champion of Bulgaria.

A demonstration football match featuring Ludogorets II (the team that plays in Group B) with a team formed by employees of Aurubis Bulgaria will also be held under the partnership. The sport event is expected with a great interest because it is a demonstration of sportsmanship and arouses strong football emotions, both in the participants and in the audience.

For the second consecutive year we decided to implement our joint successful initiative - Aurubis training summer camp 2017. We are proud to support the future talents of Bulgaria.
