AC Milan To Set Up Youth Base In Singapore

Amidst a week of hectic Champions League and UEFA Cup matches, this piece of news almost slipped past me.

According to TODAY newspaper, Milan have plans to set up a football school in Singapore. The camp, set to be called AC Milan Junior Camp, will provide training for youngsters between the ages of 6 and 18. TODAY also reported that officials from Milan could be in Singapore as early as next week to meet local officials and discuss plans for the camp.

Milan are obviously trying to extend their sphere of influence (Editor: Milan already have a youth talent initiative in North America) and this can only be good news for Singapore Rossoneri fans and local football. I’m eagerly waiting for developments on this.
