Players from GPS AS Roma Academy participate in on-field session in-between first team workouts at ESPN Wide World of Sports
Orlando, 31st December 2012; Global Premier Soccer and AS Roma celebrated the next stage of their International partnership by hosting an event at ESPN Wide World of Sports for 24 players from the AS Roma Academy program based in Florida.
The players participated in an on field session in-between the Giallorossi’s winter training workouts and, in addition, were given VIP seating to view the afternoon first team practice session and priority access to get photos and autographs both prior and post session. The travelling AS Roma first team party also presented the players with club gift-bags as part of the experience.
“As we continue to build on our international partnership with AS Roma, we were delighted to bring the leading U11 and U12 players in the state to participate in an event where they were given the opportunity to rub shoulders with the current first team squad and coaching staff,” said FPS General Manager Graham Munro. “We would like to take this opportunity to thank the AS Roma party for their hospitality at the base of their winter training camp.”
The 24 players were selected from a series of player identification clinics where the GPS AS Roma Academy (Florida) staff evaluated over 120 players from Jacksonville, Orlando, Miami, Ft Lauderdale, Fort Myers and other areas across the state.
The players also featured in an interview for AS Roma TV and have appeared in pictures on the AS Roma official website and official AS Roma Twitter feed.
