The Pantelis Kyriakidis Tournamant and an informative workshop
Time stopped for Pantelis Kyrikidis and his family on that fateful night of May 24 in 2009. Unfortunatrely, one single moment was enough to change the young PAOK Academy player’s life on his way home from a football tournament with his father. In a fatal traffic accident, he lost his father. Pantelis is still fighting, stuck in a deep coma…
As it does every year, PAOK FC and the club’s youth academy department support Pantelis by hosting the «Pantelis Kyriakidis Tournament» on December 21, 22 and 23. The games will take place at the Champions and Lions stadiums, and will be contested by players of of different age levels from PAOK’s extensive network of affiliated academies.
On the occasion of the tournament, the PAOK Academy have also decided to organize a special workshop, during which the club will present our educational philosophy and training methods. The coaches and heads of the affiliated academies are, of course, invited to attend the briefing which will be held at the Toumba Stadium press room on Sunday, December 22.
General Manager Vangelis Pourliotopoulos, Technical Director George H. Georgiadis, Head of the Analysis Department Giannis Vlachos, as well as coaches of different age groups, will present the training plan used by PAOK’s academy teams.
