Approximately 160 youngsters were treated to a once in a lifetime experience as Juventus teamed up with Official Drink Sponsor Coca Cola to offer a 360-degree view of the Bianconeri world.
After being selected to participate in the initiative through local tournaments, the budding talents – hailing from Italy, Czech Republic, Poland, Bulgaria and Greece – travelled to Vinovo on Friday afternoon to train with Juventus coaches on the first team pitches before putting their new found knowledge into practice during two Saturday tournaments.
The afternoon brought an exciting visit to J-Museum and Juventus Stadium, where each of them had the opportunity to sample the pristine playing surface before trying their luck from the penalty spot.
Following an enjoyable dinner in the stadium’s exclusive Club Agnelli suite, the youngsters were then handed special prizes during an awards ceremony.
The best, however, was yet to come as all those participating in the Coca Cola Cup Experience travelled north to the Bianconeri’s pre-season training camp for a Sunday afternoon in the stands at Chatillon’s Stadio Brunod.
The winning sides from both male and female categories subsequently rounded off a perfect three days by receiving their medals from Alessandro Matri in front of an appreciative crowd at Juventus Summer Village.
