inspiresport, the UK’s leading youth sports development tour operator, is excited to announce a new expanded partnership with Celtic FC to provide unlimited access for clubs and schools across the UK to train with Celtic FC academy coaches.
The players can learn new or enhance existing skills in a professional club environment, whilst developing a greater understanding of the academy’s philosophy of respect, integrity, commitment and support. Coaches will also have the opportunity to meet some of the coaching staff and observe academy training sessions/games.
Inspiresport is also the preferred travel partner for Celtic FC’s North American International Club Partners, and this will continue alongside this new partnership.
Steve Butchart, Managing Director at inspiresport, said:
“We’re delighted that our relationship with Celtic FC continues to flourish and has brought about this opportunity. It’s great that not only Celtic FC North American International partners can travel over to Glasgow, but now UK clubs and schools have the same opportunity to see this terrific stadium and experience high-quality training from the club’s academy coaches.”
“We see this as a fantastic addition to our domestic portfolio and a great opportunity for the young players from schools and grassroot clubs to experience Celtic FC’s culture whilst they develop their playing skills.”
“We are thrilled that our relationship continues to grow stronger, and we can’t wait to see what else is in store for the future with this exciting partnership.”
Chris Smith, Head of Soccer Academy at Celtic FC, said:
“We are very excited to expand our relationship with inspiresport and to clubs and schools across the UK. Our existing relationship has enabled us to reach more young players and provide first class services and coaching to our community. We look forward to welcoming more groups in the coming months.”
