Abu Dhabi kids can sign up for expert football training

Listen up, budding Sergio Agueros.

The eighth season of City Football Schools, the programme that lets children from across the UAE learn to play football the Manchester City way, has officially begun.

Based across a variety of venues including Emirates Palace, Zayed Sports City, New York University and Armed Forces Officers Club, the schools give both boys and girls the opportunity to improve their football skills, stay healthy, make friends and have lots of fun.

And it is all under the guidance and supervision of fully qualified City Football coaches.

If that isn’t enough to grab every young football fan’s interest, every child who signs up for a full season will be entered into a prize draw to win a trip to Manchester, including flights, accommodation and a ticket to a Premier League match.

The sessions are open to children aged from three to 18 years old.

Term one is running from now until October 20, term two from October 21 to December 15, term three from January 13 to March 23, and term four from April 14 to June 20.

This weekend marked ten years since Abu Dhabi United Group took control of Premier League giants Manchester City.

They've now firmly established themselves as one of the biggest clubs in Europe, boasting the likes of Sergio Aguero, Kevin de Bruyne and club stalwart Vincent Komany.

We went along recently to check out City Football Schools for ourselves, which you can watch in our vlog below.
