Budapest to host European blind football youth camp
Date: June 7, 2019
Hungary has been confirmed as the host country for the 2nd IBSA Blind Football European Youth Camp. The camp will take place in the capital city, Budapest, from Wednesday 10th July until Sunday 14th July.
The camp is expected to attract around 30 players between the ages of 15 and 23, who will gather to learn from internationally-acclaimed blind football coaches and from their peers.
The players and their coaches will take part in two full days of training sessions and the camp will close on Saturday 13th July with a mini-tournament involving mixed teams from different countries.
IBSA will cover all local expenses – accommodation at the 3-star Charles Hotel, meals, local transport, pitch hire, etc., and will also provide balls and eyeshades. Participants are only asked to cover their own travel expenses to and from Budapest.
European countries interested in taking part must complete and return the registration form above by Sunday June 30th. Places are limited to two players and one coach per country.

The IBSA Blind Football European Youth Camp Budapest 2019 is the showcase event of this year's IBSA Blind Football Development Project Europe, a major project made possible thanks to support from UEFA.
