Pesco, a local sports and events management company, has taken the first step towards the launch of their Liverpool FC coaching programme in the UAE by opening a representative office in Dubai in Al Barsha.

The office was opened on Sunday September 27 by Dan White, Head of Soccer Schools worldwide for Liverpool FC at a function that was also attended by Nisal Mohammed, programme director, Pesco.

The opening of a Dubai office will kick-start the  Liverpool FC coaching programme, the first of its kind in the region, which will deliver football development sessions for youngsters across schools in the UAE.

The youth coaching project, which will initially focus on schools in Dubai, is scheduled to start in mid-October.

The programme will provide youngsters between the ages of 7 and 15 with the opportunity to learn to play the ‘The Liverpool Way’, improve their football skills and develop in the technical, tactical, physical and social aspects of the game through age-specific coaching sessions.

Under the supervision of coaches from Liverpool in the United Kingdom,  the programme will also focus on improving key life skills of the young participants, including teamwork, confidence, motivation and communication.
