VfL Wolfsburg’s first trip to South Korea was a resounding success. Football was very much the focus of the two-week visit to the east Asian nation, where a VfL Football School coaching team was joined by managing director Michael Meeske and brand ambassador Pierre Littbarski in Seoul. The latter took the opportunity to lead some of the coaching sessions himself.
Teaching the VfL children’s football philosophy
The VfL Football School coaches led intensive training sessions with different age groups (U12, U16 and U18), in which they applied the Advance.Football game intelligence approach. Furthermore, four Train-the-Trainer seminars were held, concentrating on teaching the VfL children’s football philosophy. As ever, the focus of all sessions and seminars was ensuring the children and coaches were enjoying the game. There was also a pleasant surprise in the form of a reunion with a familiar face: the VfL party met up with former Wolf Ja-Cheol Koo ahead of their friendly with FC Seoul.
The success of VfL’s trip was also thanks to strong local partners, including the Volkswagen Group Korea and the Millennium Hilton Seoul. Meeske introduced VfL Wolfsburg to sponsors and network partners during a networking event at the hotel. Special thanks go to ISEA (International Sports Exchange Association).
