    A Nation of Champs, A World of Opportunities: MILO Philippines Launches Road to Barcelona Year 2: How to join?

    Milo continues to support the Philippine football grassroots level by partnering with globally-renowned football club FC Barcelona in launching the #RoadtoBarcelonaYear2 at the Milo Stadium in Kidzania BGC last September 5.

    Following the successful run last year, MILO and FCB will hold this year’s local invitational camp in football hotbed, Cebu City on September 8-9 at the Cebu City Sports Center. Over 160 girls and boys ages 10 – 12 from around the country will participate in the world-class football camp for a chance to join the life-changing champion experience in Spain, the home of FC Barcelona.

    "Every kid dreams of becoming a champ. That's why the Milo-FCB road to Barcelona Philippines Camp is back to provide kids the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to train with youth coaches from FC Barcelona," said Willy de Ocampo, VP Nestle Philippines, Inc.

    The campers will have to show their HEART values (humility, effort, ambition, respect, and teamwork) if they want to go to Spain where they can be exposed to the best facilities and training that FC Barcelona can offer.

    A total of 12 lucky and deserving junior footballers will be chosen to participate to the 9-day FC Barcelona training camp in November at the world class Camp Nou. .

    Well-decorated PFF representatives and FCB coaches will be in charge in shortlisting the most deserving athletes who will fly to Spain, where one slot in the delegation will be all-expense paid by MILO Philippines.

    The two-day camp abroad will have theoretical and practical sessions administered by FCB Youth Coaches. It's a holistic approach that can help the players be champions on and off the court.

    Assisting MILO in the facilitation of the invitational camp are the Cebu Football Association (CFA), a regional body under the Philippine Football Federation (PFF) and two coaches from the FCB Youth Academy, FC Barcelona’s flagship youth development program.

    One with MILO and FCB’s vision is the local organizer of this year’s invitational, the Cebu Football Association (CFA). CFA Vice President Rico Navarro exclaims, “We warmly welcome this momentous collaboration with two iconic sports brands, MILO and FC Barcelona. Our region has some of the most passionate and talented young players in the country, and we hope that this Road to Barcelona camp can foster the right values and grow their appreciation for the sport and everything they learn from it.”

    And if you are wondering what's in store for the 12 junior booters, here's one of the campers from last year's trip sharing his experience....
