Recently launched in Singapore is Borussia Academy, offering football coaching for girls and boys from four to 18 years of age. Academy Director ULLI NIEDERMEYER tells us more. CURRICULUM “We follow the German football training curriculum, which is one of the best in the world. We also take our teams every year to Mönchengladbach in Germany for tournaments and training camps. You never know, maybe one day we’ll discover a talented player who will play in the Bundesliga!” COACHES “Our coaches have truly international experience, as both players and coaches. They are from Germany, Cameroon, Benin, Singapore, England, Mali and Australia.” ACADEMY “The Borussia Academy is brand new; we opened in August 2018 and it’s a partnership between Asia Pacific Sports Management, the Bundesliga club (the top tier of the German

football league), Borussia Mönchengladbach and GESS. As one of the biggest clubs in Germany, Borussia Mönchengladbach is known for its development of young talent, and we’re looking forward to being able to bring their 118 years of experience and passion to Singapore.” FACILITIES “We are privileged to have one of the best indoor and outdoor facilities on the island at the GESS campus on Dairy Farm Road. We’re looking forward to holding many events for Singapore-based teams and also international tournaments.”
