After visiting various pitches in and around Maputo and meeting with local coaches the following places were found ideal to expand the Festa de Futebols to: Habitação, Polana and Canissa Massaca. These locations were chosen because of already existing structures in training methods and a large number of interested trainers. Throughout the next weeks we will meet with all potential coaches to get to know them and their motivation better. We are positive quite a few new trainers can be expected to participate in next weeks coach training!
In Massaca in Boane the Escolinha de Tico Tico, a local football school run by Mozambique’s record goalie Manuel „Tico Tico“ Bucuane, has integrated the Festa and for the first time a rural region will be reached. We are delighted about the new partnership and to be working with Tico Tico and his coaches!
