Over 60 boys, age between 8 and 12, took part in FK Partizan campaign Meet Your Idol, engaging in appropriate training session staged by Partizan youth coaches followed by a meeting with Partizan players.
– I wish we had this back in the days. Our legs were shaking when we would approach Partizan ground and this famous training pitch. I think kids today are not aware how much we got them close to football game with number of campaigns, via YouTube and web overall. These campaigns serve to get kids off the streets, of gaming and TV`s, to get them back onto football pitches and show them the allure of sport. I also call on kids to join Bar 2018 youth camp, traditionally staged in January. With that kind of social engagement and practice they can get the early feel of true football togetherness, says Partizan skipper Sasa Ilic.
Sasa Ilic and company watched their football idols in the past, now they are idols to the young ones.
Apart from playing with the ball, kids took lots of autographs and joint photos. For sure, this group of youngsters found this experience motivating and we can only hope some of them will be part of club`s winning squad in the future.
