Allianz Junior Football Camp brings together talented young footballers from across Asia
  • Fifty-seven talented teenager footballers train in Bangkok for chance to represent Asia at the Allianz Junior Football Camp in Munich next month.

Talented young footballers from across Asia came together this week for the regional Allianz Junior Football Camp - providing a chance to develop their games and learn new skills under the tutelage of FC Bayern.

Fifty-seven talented teenagers in the region trained together in Bangkok – with nine young footballers selected to represent Asia at the Allianz Junior Football Camp in Munich next month. The chosen few will also get to meet some of the team's best football players and watch them live in action at Allianz Arena – FC Bayern's home stadium.

The young players, aged between 14-16 years old, came together for the regional camp after finishing top at their home country events in China, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Philippines, Taiwan, Thailand, Singapore and Sri Lanka.

Allianz's annual camp in Asia is the first to be held in the Thailand capital and included fitness workshops, footwork techniques, technical and tactical skills – ending with a tournament on the final day. The training was led by FC Bayern's youth coach Carsten Lakies with the aim to take talented teenagers to the next level and set them up for future success.

Bryan Smith, President and CEO, Allianz Ayudhya Assurance PCL, said, "Allianz has been running this program for 10 years and making many young kids' dreams a reality. We know they picked up football skills at the camp but I hope the teenagers learnt much more about teamwork and take home valuable friendships. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and it's our pleasure to host such an inspiring event for the first time in Bangkok."

Carsten Lakies, Former Player and Coach, International Program, FC Bayern, said, "We all have something in common - a love for football – and I'm delighted to have seen this enthusiasm throughout the four day camp and wish all the best to everyone who took part."

The camp included presentations on the final day for high achievers who showed outstanding performance across the four days.
The Allianz Junior Football Camp is part of the global financial services company's long-term partnership with FC Bayern
