    Default Milan to base in S'pore!!!

    SINGAPORE : With seven European Cups in the trophy cabinet and 18 international club titles in all, AC Milan are one of the biggest names in football.

    In their 109-year history, the Italian giants have also produced some of footballís biggest superstars, including Franco Baresi and Paolo Maldini.

    Now, the 17-time Serie A champions are believed to be keen on establishing a foothold in Singapore.

    TODAY has learnt that Milan plan to set up a football school in Singapore. According to sources, the project - to be called AC Milan Junior Camp - will be for youngsters aged between six and 18. The camp will provide the highest quality of football coaching by the club.

    One of the parties involved is believed to be a local hotel group and negotiations are currently ongoing.

    When ready, it would be the first football camp in South-east Asia established by the Italian giants, and one of two in Asia, after the one in Japan. The club also have an official football camp in the United States, and all are designed to enable youngsters youths to pick up football skills and foster new friendships.

    According to sources, a delegation from Milan could be in Singapore as early as next week to explore possible sites for the camp and also to meet local officials. The Rossoneri could well have the Champions League trophy in tow for the three-day visit, tentatively scheduled from April 14-16.

    Milan are the outgoing holders of the trophy, having beaten Liverpool 2-1 in last yearís final in Athens. Last month, they were eliminated at the first knock-out stage of this seasonís competition by Arsenal and the club, currently coached by Carlo Ancelotti, are lying in fifth spot in Serie A, 20 points behind city rivals Inter Milan. - TODAY/il

    AC Milan junior camps to start later this year
    By Patwant Singh, Channel NewsAsia | Posted: 15 April 2008 2024 hrs

    SINGAPORE: Italian football giants AC Milan, which have chosen Singapore as their Southeast Asian football hub, are planning to organise activities such as junior camps for children aged six to 16 here.

    The five-day camps are slated to start in the second half of the year.

    Former captain of Singapore national football team Aide Iskandar will be the technical director for the camps.

    In addition, coaches from Italy will also be flown in.

    There are also plans to set up a permanent football school in Singapore.

    "There is this plan to identify the best players in each region and invite them as guests of AC Milan for an experience in San Siro, the stadium in Milan. Together with the other kids in the world, (they will) participate (in) small tournaments and events," said Roberto Cartelli, chairman of Kick Off!, which is AC Milan's Singapore agent.

    The Italians also want to reach out to this region and give English football a run for its money.

    AC Milan's global ambassador Daniele Massaro said: "In Asia, AC Milan have many, many fans. And now (it is a) match between (the) Italian League and (the) Premier League."

    Milan Park, a soccer-themed entertainment park with interactive games, will be also brought to Singapore.

    A replica of the Champions League trophy that AC Milan won last season will also be put on display at Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel for the next two days. - CNA/ac
