We like to help ambitious professional football teams, and that's what we did a few days ago with KV Mechelen of the Belgium 2nd Division.
KV Mechelen had a fantastic start of the season, winning the 1st period of the league, and it’s close to be automatically cleared to where they belong, the top division!
The winter break is crucial for KV Mechelen, and the team asked our assistance, for the second consecutive year, to help them find an excellent place to work, with top sports facilities, but also a quiet and friendly venue for a warm-weather football training camp.
We took them to one of our favourite spots in “Costa Blanca”, Spain, an elite venue by the sea, offering first-class facilities which are used year after year by professional football teams for their football training camps. With four FIFA-sized natural grass pitches in perfect conditions, a 150m2 Gym, an amazing SPA, menus prepared to the individual request of each group and private areas allowing the team to enjoy their deserved privacy. The hotel has direct access to the beach, allowing the players to enjoy some free time there. The sun was always shining, and the temperatures above 17ºc.
During KV Mechelen’s training camp, Move Sports have arranged 2 friendly games against SC Cambuur from the Dutch 2nd Division, and Holstein Kiel from the 2nd Bundesliga. Our “Malinwa” won 2-0 against Cambuur (39’ Engvall; 56’ Togui), and lost for the same result against Kiel. Two very tough games that were a good test for Wauter Vrancken’s pupils.
But what really made us happy was the evaluation of our work made by KV Mechelen’s team manager: "I can now confirm that we had one of our best training camps in our history of the club. I received a lot of positive feedback from all the players and from the technical staff ".
