Well, we are loving football at the moment…

We are a little football obsessed at the moment as we soak up World Cup fever across the UAE, so when we heard that English football champions, Manchester City had brought the Premier League trophy for a visit, we couldn’t wait to have a look.

And it is as shiny up close as it looks on TV.

The Abu Dhabi owned football team have a huge presence in the capital with passionate fans, fan zones and also City Football Schools, a football academy for kids which runs courses throughout the year.

We were delighted to hear that City Football Schools’ summer camps begin on Sunday 8th July.

And to add to the great news, anyone signing up for the summer camps has a chance to win a trip to Manchester City’s home ground, The Etihad Stadium, to watch the English champions play next season.

To be in with a chance, each child must sign up to a full week of one of the summer camps running through July.

With the World Cup being as gripping as it has been, we think football is the order of the day and we wish we were still kids so we could have a kick about.

The summer camps are available to boys and girls aged between 6 and 12 years’ old and to book visit www.cityfootballschools.com.
