Manchester United Soccer Schools Builds On Family Theme In Abu Dhabi
Youngsters can share footballing education with family member or friend
Youngsters enrolling in one of the four weekly courses starting on Sunday (July 3) will be joining a growing “family” of more than 700 seven to 16-year-olds who have been embraced by MUSS since its launch in the UAE capital last October.

“Manchester United has over 300 million fans worldwide and they are all part of the Manchester United family. This family atmosphere is something we’ve worked hard to create here over the last eight months,” said MUSS head coach in Abu Dhabi, Andy Dixon.
“The youngsters and their parents who come here are made to feel part of the MUSS family, and our summer courses are designed very much with the family in mind.
“We’re encouraging youngsters who enrol to bring along a family member or friend to learn to play the United way this summer, and we’re discounting the course fee for those who do.”
The four weekly summer courses will take place on the unique air conditioned football pitches at the Dome@Rawdhat, now firmly established as the MUSS base in Abu Dhabi and also offering first-class outdoor facilities, making it a year-round centre of activity in the capital for thousands of players.
Running from Sunday to Wednesday, the summer programmes feature separate daily themes built around different technical areas of the game.
Each coaching session will use the current crop of Manchester United first team players as the inspiration and model examples from which the children can learn and develop themselves both on and off the pitch.
The summer courses focus on short passing and dribbling skills, control and creating chances, and culminate with an exciting ‘Play Like Champions’ tournament giving youngsters
the chance to display their newly honed skills in a series of mini matches.
For the first time ever in the UAE, one week will be dedicated to learning goalkeeping skills, with coaches from Manchester flying to Abu Dhabi specifically to train and teach the children.
To book a place and take advantage of the limited family friendly offer, those interested can call 02 449 8480 or visit www.manutdsoccerschools.ae. The price of AED995 includes 12 hours of on-field coaching, an exclusive MUSS Nike training kit with shirt, shorts and socks as well as an MUSS certificate, drawstring bag and water bottle.
