Spurs and Jaguar drive youth training progamme in China

September 26 – Premier League Tottenham Hotspur have teamed up with Jaguar Land Rover China to deliver a year-long youth football development training programme in Guangzhou.

In association with the Guangzhou Education Bureau and the China Soong Ching Ling Foundation the Tottenham Hotspur Global Coaching Team will provide 42 physical education teachers with the coaching skills, drills and techniques to deliver football training to 8,000 primary and middle school students

In addition to delivering intensive face-to-face training sessions for teachers throughout the year, the Spurs coaches will work hands-on with the young footballers and their teachers.

The programme will also bring 40 children – some from Guangzhou and some from underprivileged areas of China – to the UK for the Jaguar China-UK Football & Cultural Exchange in November.

The Jaguar Football Campus Guangzhou, delivered by Tottenham Hotspur is part of the Jaguar Land Rover China Children & Youth Dream Fund, jointly initiated by Jaguar Land Rover China and the China Soong Ching Ling Foundation. The Dream Fund is investing 50 million yuan (£5 million) over three years from 2014-2017 to support the growth and development of the next generation via four pillars: Sports for All, Road Safety, Talent Development and Social Care.

Richard Shore, Acting Regional President Jaguar Land Rover Greater China, said: “Youth football development has been a cornerstone of the Dream Fund since its inception in May 2014. In partnership with the China Soong Ching Ling Foundation, our football programmes are benefitting 30,000 Chinese children over three years until 2017.”
