Under-14 Girls player Maddie Campbell has been selected to train with the junior women’s futsal team in Spain next year.
Maddie was selected to train with the junior women’s futsal team on Sunday August 4 courtesy of the Elite 96 program.
The academy will run for two weeks between March 3 to March 11 next year held in Costa Brava.
The academy will include a mini tournament, ‘The Top 12 Cup,’ with players from Europe, United States and South America.
Maddie said she was shocked at her selection.
“An email came through two weeks ago and mum called me over to read it. I was shocked,” she said.
“I was really excited and very surprised to be selected. I can’t wait to go and play.”
Maddie said she is looking forward to improving herself as a player in the academy and seeing her favourite player Lionel Messi.
“I am looking forward to learning new skills, meeting other players, and bettering myself,” she said.
“Also, I can’t wait to watch Messi play live.”
“We get to go to a Barcelona game when there.”
“He’s one of my favourite players in the world.”
To get Maddie to Spain, the Campbell family are also looking to get sponsors to help with a raffle/auction.
