This year, Novigrad will once again host the preparations of the young selections of the English Premiere League club Manchester City, one of the most famous football clubs in the world. From 17-27 July some eighty members of the Manchester City football academy, or more precisely, the U-21, U-19 and U-18 teams, will stay in the Aminess Maestral Hotel and train on the football pitches of Aminess Hotels & Campsites and Laco stadium.
Football lovers will enjoy watching trainings and matches under the leadership of the renowned French national team player Patrick Vieira, head of the U-21 team, better known as the Elite Development Squad. Apart from the skills of the U-21 team, the spectators will also get an opportunity to watch the preparations of the U-19 and the slightly younger U-18 team, who can boast with the best result this year since they made it into the finals of the Barclays U18 Premier League.
Manchester City once again chose Novigrad, recognizing it as an ideal destination for the preparation of its players. They joined the company of over 200 football teams from all over Europe who prepare in northwest Istria throughout the year. Mild climate, premium sports infrastructure, excellent organization and hotel service are only some of the reasons why northwest Istria is increasingly becoming a European football destination.
