These are strange and for our generation even unprecedented times. Life in general has come to a standstill and so has football. Both our first team and our academy players are at home, trying to stay fit and uncertain of when their training sessions and league matches will resume. We imagine that many of you are in similar situations.
Rest assured that in spite of being in the midst of the global pandemic crisis, at Feyenoord we definitely have not forgotten about you, our international partners in football. In this newsletter our international development coaches share some ideas on how to keep yourself and your players mentally and physically fit. Also, we want to keep in touch with you. And so we are offering a conference call with our international development coaches which you can use to discuss football issues, philosophize about tactics or training sessions or just to have a surprise guest during your virtual team meeting(s). Let us know if you’re interested and we’ll set it up!
Meanwhile, when we can not take to the pitch, we need to quench our thirst for competition in different ways. For that reason the Feyenoord International department is setting up an international FIFA tournament. We would love for you or your players to participate. Details on how to join can be found in this newsletter.
We look forward to meeting you again, offline or online. Wishing you great health, strength, patience and solidarity on behalf of everyone at Feyenoord!
Manager of International Relations at Feyenoord Rotterdam
