With all the district winners to Spain!
Every football district in Germany provides a district winner of the “Football Heroes”! The reward for the award is an invitation to the five-day “Football Heroes Educational Trip” to Spain.
For one week, participants are taught theoretical and practical knowledge about children’s and youth football by a highly qualified team of instructors put together by the DFB.
Learning takes place in workshops specially tailored to the needs of the participants, alternately on the course and in seminar rooms. The training is rounded off by varied optional offers and leisure activities under the Spanish sun directly on the Mediterranean Sea! Among other things, an excursion to Barcelona with a visit to the legendary Camp Nou stadium is on the programme.
The football heroes’ educational trip takes place in cooperation with KOMM MIT satt. The sponsor of children’s and youth football has been an official cooperation partner of the DFB in the area of youth development since 19983 and has supported voluntary work for almost 30 years.
