WARM WELCOME AT CHINESE FOOTBALL CARNIVAL
Director Steve Bellis received a warm welcome during a recent visit to a football carnival in Gaoming in Southern China.
The carnival was one of a series of events organised by the Tong Xing company aimed at providing training for primary school children.
Tong Xing are currently in negotiations with our local partners to develop a partnership aimed at enhancing football development in Shenzhen and Guangdong.
It is hoped that the partnership with the recently created FDCD company will see UK coaches travelling to Southern China and young aspiring footballers coming to the UK to take advantage of a range of courses.
There is also strong interest in the creation of a Kickworldwide Institute and Outreach Programme in Gaoming, a district in Foshan City.
Bellis visited a potential site for the Institute and there is the possibility of a pilot outreach programme after the Chinese New Year.
