The new FCBEscola campuses in Singapore and Santo Domingo are up and running, and they've been well received by both countries
Between the two schools, more than 600 children will undergo the training regiment after they successfully participated in the trails
This past Saturday the FCBEscola in Singapore opened its gates for the first time, and since then children have participated regularly in the training regiment provided by the school. The project in Singapore, which was presented three years ago, has been a complete success.
A couple of months ago the Club announced the opening of a new FCBEscola in Asia, the one in Singapore. This new school, which started operating in the last week of September, was officially presented this past Saturday. It has a 250-player capacity, and it was preceded by various FCBCamps throughout the country.
FCBEscola Singapore is situated on the St. Patricks School campus, and children from 6 to 12 years old can develop their footballing skills and learn the values of FCBEscola, which are respecting team-mates, managers and to care for their surrounding environment. This new project is under the direction and responsibility of FCBEscola and it is coordinated by the FCBEscola coach, Carles Martín.
FCBEscola in Santo Domingo
Another school that also started up at the end of September is located in Santo Domingo, in the Dominican Republic. More than 300 children that passed the trials in July and August – more than 1,500 children participated in the trials – started training in the FCBEscola in Santo Domingo under the direction of the FCBEscola coach, Aleix Gibert.
With the arrival of the FC Barcelona model, the Club has revolutionised the island’s interest in football. Up until now, the most popular sport in the Dominican Republic has been baseball, but with the arrival of FCBEscola and with it, the model, the philosophy and the values of FC Barcelona, more than 300 children have jumped at the chance to enroll for training. In fact, many children of baseball players are enrolled in the FCBEscola in Santo Domingo, which highlights the interest the Dominican Republic has in the sport.
Coinciding with the FC Barcelona ASIA TOUR ’13 the club has announced that it is opening a new football school in the continent, this time in Singapore
