Young blind footballers between the ages of 15 and 23 are gathering in Hamburg for the IBSA Blind Football European Youth Camp 2015, which brings together players and coaches from all over the continent.
The port city in north Germany is ready to host the event, which kicks off tomorrow morning and includes two full days of training and coach education and a visit to the FC St Pauli stadium.
Players and coaches from Germany, Spain, Italy, Hungary, Austria and Georgia have signed up for the camp, the showcase event for this year in the IBSA Blind Football Development Project Europe. The project is made possible thanks to support from UEFA.
