Play with ex-pro footballers on a summer holiday under the Spanish and Greek sun, Ikos Resorts, press release

When dreams become reality: stand on the pitch with famous footballers like Joe Cole, Ashley Williams, Bobby Zamora or Robbie Keane and get personal tips. The luxury resorts Ikos Andalusia in Spain and Ikos Olivia on the northern Greek peninsula of Halkidiki are partnering with Football Escapes to make it possible between April and August 2022.

Experience former top players up close

Ex-professionals from the world-class soccer league meet youngsters in excellent beach resorts and thus offer the perfect combination of exclusive holidays and first-class training for the kids. Football Escapes, a renowned English organizer of football camps around the world, is once again collaborating with Ikos Resorts in 2022 to bring unforgettable moments to even more young football enthusiasts. After the very successful camps at Ikos Andalusia last year, guests at the Greek Ikos Olivia can now also benefit from live sessions with legendary coaches who have been licensed by UEFA or who have been able to perfect their skills through their time in the Premier League.

Dates and procedure

Girls and boys between the ages of five and 15 can use the opportunity of a unique football camp in five-day courses. These can be booked in addition to the actual hotel stay. Ikos Andalusia is rolling the ball with Ashley Williams during the Easter break from April 11th to 15th and is offering two more camps during the summer months – July 25th to 29th (with Joe Cole and Bobby Zamora) and July 29th August 15-19 (with Robbie Keane and Bobby Zamora). Ikos Olivia is delighted to host the special football event for the first time, starting on August 1st. English footballer Anton Ferdinand will be here until August 5th. He will be replaced between August 22nd and 26th by the duo Steve Sidwell and Billy Wingrove.

Sessions with the guest coaches take place every day for two hours. One of the world’s best football freestylers, Billy Wingrove, will also be at the start to play football with the children and young people. After completing the camp, each participant receives a signed certificate and a medal.

The ideal setting with maritime flair

Cheering on the children from afar from the beach lounger and then going for a leisurely swim in the sea – that’s what the parents of the young footballers can expect. You can relax in a luxurious way, whether on the beach, in the pool or with an extensive spa treatment.

Ikos Andalusia is the latest addition to the multi-award-winning Ikos Resorts, making their home for the first time in Spain in 2021, on the beautiful south coast. Spacious suites are distributed in an impressive garden complex including eight heated pools, high-quality sports and leisure facilities from tennis to fitness classes to water sports and an excellent kids club – only 20 minutes from Marbella and not far from Malaga airport.

Not only has Ikos Olivia been recognized by TripAdvisor’s Travelers’ Choice Awards, but it is also the number one all-inclusive resort with a private sandy beach. Here the palate is spoiled with culinary excellence and the elegant setting is a great choice for carefree relaxation. You can splash around in the adults-only pool as well as in the kids’ pool, and the nearest airport on the Aegean peninsula, Thessaloniki, can be reached in less than an hour.

Beaming faces everywhere you look, adults enjoying themselves to the fullest at Ikos Resorts while daughters and sons have the vacation of a lifetime – that’s the essence of Football Escapes Camps this summer.
