It seems that PAOK were destined to kick off their summer preperations in the Netherlands once more! The change of the siutation around PAOK’s participation in the Conference League qualifiers has brought about a domino of developments and PAOK have had to cancel the club’s original reservation in Austria.
Thus, for another year, PAOK will have the main phase of the club’s pre-season program in the Netherlands, returning to the familiar surroundings of Apeldoorn.
The promotion of PAOK from the second to the third qualifying round of the Conference League has given the opportunity for the club to adjust its program. The first training session has been moved from from 22.06 to 29.06, and the departure to Holland for the main stage of pre-season has been switched from 29.06 to 12.07. This meant that Das Sieben in Tyrol, Austria was a no-go due to lack of availability. PAOK, therefore, will return to the Bilderberg Hotel De Keizerskroon in Apeldoorn, where it will stay from July 12 to 26.
Onside, PAOK’s official collaborator for pre-season preparations, moved quickly and contributed the most for the club’s reprogramming of its summer camp, arranging all the necessary details together with the club’s leaders.
Onside is a company that specializes in similar projects and collaborates with many major teams such as Dortmund, Gladbach and Standard Liege.
The company is based in Germany, Spain and Austria and in the past two summers has organized over 151 pre-season camps, 337 friendly matches and nine friendly tournaments and is helping PAOK once again with its experience.
