Sunday, January 20th, 2013, Doha, Qatar: The prestigious Aspire Zone will play host to one of the biggest football clubs in world when English Premier League giants Manchester United hold a three day training camp in Qatar.
The Reds will return to the Aspire Academy Outdoor Football Pitches, where they held a training camp in 2010, with the team set to take advantage of the ideal climate and outstanding facilities available.
Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson wants a camp in a warm environment so that his players will be able to train outdoors, maintain their physical condition and recharge their batteries. Sir Alex had many alternatives to choose from but he and his team have opted for Qatar, and more precisely for the Aspire Zone’s state-of–the art facilities.
Commenting on Manchester United’s presence at Aspire, Director General of Aspire Academy, Ivan Bravo said: “Aspire are delighted to warmly welcome such a big team at our premises. We thank the Manchester United management for choosing Qatar and Aspire for their camp. We will do our best to make their camp and visit to Aspire and Qatar a successful one.”
The Reds will start their four-day training camp at Aspire on Monday, January 21th, finishing on Thursday, January 24rd, 2013. Explaining the choice of Qatar, and Aspire in particular, team manager, Sir Alex Ferguson said:” We went to Aspire back in 2010 and the fantastic facilities, excellent weather conditions and hospitality from the Aspire management were a perfect combination. It will be an ideal place for us and we are looking forward to an excellent training camp that will see us up for the remainder of the season.”
Aspire Zone boasts some of the finest sports training facilities in the world and has already welcomed Bayern Munich, Paris St Germain and Shalke football clubs for training camps this month. The world’s most comprehensive campus for athletes in training, Aspire Zone has been used as a training base for many different sports including ahead of major international events such as the Olympic Games.
