Also in 2016 IFCS succeeds in bringing international high-caliber teams to Styria

Numerous high-caliber teams are coming to Styria for their pre-season training camps – at the top Paris Saint-Germain and VfL Wolfsburg.

Also this summer local football lovers are offered all they could possibly desire. Again quite a few international top teams are preparing for the 2016_17 football season here in Styria and do so to receive the fine-tuning for the tasks ahead. At the top IFCS is hosting the teams of Paris Saint-Germain and VfL Wolfsburg, both of them Champions League quarter-finalists of the past season. The current French double-winner (with the stars Thiago Silva, Angel di Maria or Edinson Cavani) will be our guests in Schladming between July 8th and July 13th.
VfL Wolfsburg will be in Bad Waltersdorf right before Germany´s season kick-off from August 5th to August 12th. “The international top clubs appreciate the ideal training conditions, the superb quality of our lodging establishments and the Styrian hospitality. These annual camps provide perfect tourist promotion for Styria as a holiday destination. On the one hand, they push for more overnight-stays, on the other hand media reporting of training camps and test matches have made Styria a respected international showcase. What gives me great pleasure is that Kian Walizadeh and his team have succeeded in bringing numerous attractive teams to Styria again also this summer”, is what Dr. Christian Buchmann, the Regional Styrian Minister for Economy and Innovation says.
Altogether at least thirty teams will be here with us for their pre-season training camps in the long-term reliable top locations of Bad Radkersburg, Bad Waltersdorf, Irdning, Schladming, Loipersdorf, Leoben, St. Lambrecht and Söchau.
Next to Paris Saint Germain and VfL Wolfsburg we will be hosting teams with many passionate football supporters, such as Feyenoord Rotterdam and the two German clubs Karlsruher SC and TSV 1860 Munich. Also the German U-19 national squad will be our guests this year. To us in Styria the repeated presence of several English football teams is a very special sign of appreciation. Watford, Charlton Athletic, Coventry City, Aston Villa and West Bromwich Albion will have their pre-season camps here in Styria this summer. At the end of June also Austria´s SK Sturm Graz will be counting on Styria for their pre-season training camp in Bad Waltersdorf.
