GFL Select Teams Munich 2014

Exciting times are ahead of us!

GFL Select teams 2014 are on their way to Munich!

GFL Soccer’s selection for this year is complete. For the last couple of months GFL Soccer organized soccer camps throughout the State of Florida during which players from all over the country displayed their soccer talents. The selected boys will travel to Munich, Germany from November 16th to 29th to compete against FC Bayern Munich Academy teams and other Bundesliga youth teams. This international trip is an amazing opportunity for the selected youth players, who can measure themselves with some of the best players in the world in their respective age group. Besides playing friendly games against some of Germany’s best youth teams, the group will also be able to visit the FC Bayern Munich Training Facility at the Saebener Strasse and observe some of the Pro Training Sessions. Practices lead by FC Bayern Munich coaches are scheduled for the boys. For individual players there will also be the chance to go on trial with FC Bayern Munich, if selected directly by FC Bayern Munich Scouts. During the course of the trip GFL players will be observed not only by FC Bayern Munich Scouts but also from other Bundesliga Scouts. The boys will also have the chance to see live the Champions League game Schalke 04 vs. Chelsea FC at the famous Veltins Arena. Please check our in Munich schedule below for day to day detail.

Congrats to all selected players!

GFL’s Player Stephen Rudderham Invited To Train With TSV 1860 Munich For One Month

In October 2013 two GFL select teams traveled to Munich to play against top Bundesliga youth academy teams such as FC Bayern Munich and TSV Munich 1860. Stevie was one of the GFL players that were selected to train with the TSV 1860 Munich  U17 team. Due to his great performance, the coach of the team invited him back to take a closer look at him during their pre-season preparation for the 2014 season. TSV Munich 1860 is one of the top German youth academies that consistently develops and provides players for their men’s team, as well as other top teams in Germany and across Europe. Some of the current Bundesliga stars, such as Lars and Sven Bender (Bayer Leverkusen and Borussia Dortmund), Benjamin Lauth (TSV Munich 1860), Stefan Aigner (Eintracht Frankfurt), Christian Trasch (VfB Stuttgart) and many more started their career at the TSV 1860 Munich’s youth academy. This is a great opportunity for Stevie and we know that this experience could be a start to a very promising and successful soccer career. Good Luck Steve!
