IPSO Educational Director Colin Chambers delivers Scouting and Analysis Presentation to Orlando City FC Youth Academy Team in Barcelona.

The International Professional Scouting Organisation met with the Orlando City Football Club, from the United States, at the Camp Nou. Home of Barcelona FC and one of the most impressive stadia in the world. It would have been rude not to have a tour. Colin and the Orlando FC Youth Team got to see behind the scenes of the stadium as well as experience FC Barcelona’s history in their Museum. 

Ipso were invited to Barcelona through ‘‘Got the tour’’ Tours company. A company that organises tours and tournaments for all different levels of football around the world. The event was held in Barcelona were the IPSO team presented a talk and presentation to young players and parents from Orlando USA who are part of the Orlando City football club that play in the MLS. The event was a great success and the young players and parents approximately 80 in total totally enjoyed the presentation that helps in their development as young footballers. Not only did IPSO provide a great

Presentation but we were also on hand to answer any questions the players or parents wanted answering about their son’s or for themselves to gain a stronger understanding of how to help their son’s or  daughter’s improve as footballers. A great weekend was had as we watched training sessions and went on a tour of the famous Nou Camp home of Barcelona FC. We net worked while also socialising with everyone on the tour talking football, football football. John Higgins one of the organisers from ‘‘Got the tour’’  had this to say ‘‘It was a privilege to have Colin Chambers , Education Director for IPSO, with us  at our pre-tournament training camp in Lloret de Mar.  

The IPSO presentation was a huge success and gave our players, parents and coaches a clear, decisive and relevant insight into the possibilities of future personal development in football “ Colin Chambers the education director was our representative and commented ‘’what a great weekend and what a well organised event I was very impressed’’ adding ’’The organisation and timings of how it was set up was  really impressive and also all the activities they implemented into the tour was first class I couldn’t recommend ‘‘Got the tour’’ enough you can see they’ve been doing this for years.’’ The event lasted 2 weeks  although the IPSO team were only there for the weekend but a lot was gained from it and the feedback from the coaches and parents of the interaction with IPSO was great. 

Here’s to many more events were we can help develop young players and educate the parents at the same time.
