NF SELECTION
COSTA DAURADA

Join NF Selection Teams at Costa Daurada Cup for the Easter edition!

One of the most prestigious youth tournaments in Barcelona during this time of the year.

A fantastic competition located right next to the sunny beaches of Salou, Spain, where you can enjoy a healthy and competitive football atmosphere in an enviable climate during Easter.

WHO IS IT FOR?

We are looking players who have a high national level. Most of the players will be selected through invitation based on outstanding performance in previous programs, but we also have a few spots available for top talents who want to apply.

On this tournament we will bring four elite teams that will participate in the following age groups for Boys:

  • 2012 (U12) – 12 field players + 2 GK
  • 2011 (U13) – 15 field players + 2 GK
  • 2010 (U14) – 15 field players + 2 GK
  • 2009 (U15) – 15 field players + 2 GK

and for Girls:

  • 2007/2008 (G17) – 15 field players + 2 GK
  • 2010/2011 (G14) – 15 field players + 2 GK

GOALS WITH THE PROGRAM

Our main objectives in NF Selection Costa Daurada is to provide players with international match references against strong teams, give the players a better understanding of the game and provide experience in integrating into a team with good players from different countries.

During the preparational training camp and tournament, we will do a full evaluation of all the players. Each player will have a meeting with their head coach and get detailed feedback on what they need to improve to reach a higher level. All the players will be provided with an evaluation report with the purpose to give guidance for their training work when they return to their country.

“I would say my time with NF Academy has helped take away the challenging aspect that new situations can produce, such as getting national team callups, changing clubs or taking further steps as a player. Their programs are on a high level, with good coaches, and there are players from different nationalities who seek the same as you. It really makes you develop both as a person and a player.”

Oscar Fuglesang, Silkeborg and Denmark U17 national team

«I participated with NF Academy’s U13 team, which was great! Vi got to the quarter final, where we lost to Sporting CP on penalties. It’s not the best way to go out of a competition, but the whole setup is great with some very good coaches!”
Niklas Haugland, Leeds U23 and Norway U17 national team

“I would say my time with NF Academy has helped take away the challenging aspect that new situations can produce, such as getting national team callups, changing clubs or taking further steps as a player. Their programs are on a high level, with good coaches, and there are players from different nationalities who seek the same as you. It really makes you develop both as a person and a player.”
Oscar Fuglesang, Silkeborg and Denmark U17 national team

«João Plantier has played an important part in my career for several reasons. He gave me freedom and believed in me. We had a close relationship, and he monitored me the whole way. João gave me feedback on what I needed to improve during matches, and last but not least, he was very good at constantly providing me with new challenges.”
Zeca, Captain of FC Copenhagen and Greece national team

“I played together with same very good players and trained under very competent coaches. First and foremost, it was a great experience, and I got a good reference on what level the best teams in Europe were on. Such programs carry a lot of worth, because they later on make the transition to new teams and levels easier.”
Kristian Arnstad, RSC Anderlecht and captain of Norway U16

“The training sessions are on a very high level, and there are exercises I have never participated in before. I have learned a lot, which I take with me to my training back home in Norway”
Dylan Ryan Murugesapilla, Lillestrøm and captain of Norway U15

“My boys (born 2004 and 2007) are really excited to come to the IberCup Cascais tournament. Not only to play against top teams but also to see where their current level is and to train and meet other good players around Scandinavia. To have programs like NF Academy is fantastic. When you train with top-level coaches and other same age players you really see where the international football level is.»
Bjørn Helge Riise, former Fulham and Norwegian National team player

«It wasn’t until we came home that we saw the huge improvements in Kevin as a player. He has a new authority about him now, and his decision making is better. The reason for this is good experiences and good coaches at NF Academy. We won’t for a second regret we chose a team with the competence that NF Academy has.”
Thomas Hansvoll, former professional boxer and national champion

“The stay with NF Academy gave me a taste of everyday life as a professional. Very competent coaches and good players around me. The days were good, and I learned a lot. It was after this stay that I dared to visit foreign clubs to show what I can do.”
Lucas Kåhed, IFK Gøteborg and Sweden U17

“I am very happy with last year’s NF Academy participation in IberCup. It was very exciting and inspiring to get to play in a team with so many good players from Norway, Sweden and Denmark. I got motivated to give even more after having played against and seen how good oponents from countries such as Portugal, Spain and Mexico were.”
Fredrik Oppegård, Vålerenga and Norway U17

«During the easter of 2018, I was in Cascais, Portugal with NF Academy to participate in IberCup Cascais 2018. It was my first time with NF Academy, and a great experience. I got a lot from the trip. The training, matches, coaches and players were a fantastic mix of both fun and serious football.”
Filip Mellbin, Denmark U16
