Athletic Bilbao is also coming to the U12 İzmir Cup, which will be held by our club on April 6-7-8-9. Our European Director Murat Korkmaz and our Corporate Communications Director Can Erbesler, who had a series of contacts in Spain, came together with the Barcelona authorities and presented them with invitations to participate. Our delegation, continuing their contacts, met at the Athletic Club Facilities, Academy Coordinator Diego Gil de Gomez and Deputy Coordinator Txus Gojenuri, and handed them their invitations. Athletic Bilbao Academy Coordinator Gomez emphasized that although U12 is played 6+1 all over Spain, they always play with the 8+1 system for the development of their players and that's why the U12 İzmir Cup is very valuable according to their evaluations. Gomez also conveyed to our team that they examined the past participation reports of the U12 İzmir Cup and that the teams returned to their countries very happy.
