The action-packed schedule began with Spanish goalkeeper Adrian San Miguel Castillo. He graced the sandy shores from the 19th to the 23rd of March. Adrian is a key player for Liverpool FC and the Andalusia National team. During his time at the resort, he helped younger guests understand how to deal with pressure and develop key life skills. This also included developing a performance mindset.

Football Camp Experiences with Wayne Bridge

Next on the roster was Wayne Bridge who came to Siyam World from from 22nd to 31st March. He is a renowned English left-back, who returned to Siyam World for a second time already. With his infectious energy and wealth of experience from clubs like Chelsea and Manchester City, Wayne inspired guests to “tackle” challenges head-on and score big on and off the field.

Francesco Totti Lights up Siyam World Football Camp

Following Wayne’s lead was the legendary Francesco Totti, lighting up Siyam World for a second time as well. He visited from 28th March to 4th April. Totti is known for his flair and loyalty to AS Roma. He brought a touch of Italian passion to the Maldives, teaching participants the art of precision and creativity in football. 

Once described by Maradona as “the best player he has ever seen”, the gifted World Cup winner and legendarily loyal one-club player (AS Roma) will be on hand to help holidaymakers hone their football skills and play to their full potential.

Closing out the star-studded lineup was Michael Owen. He is the youngest-ever Ballon d’Or winner, who graced Siyam World from the 1st to the 5th of April. Michael Owen is joining as part of the recently announced partnership with Football Escapes. Michael’s lightning-fast moves and goal-scoring prowess electrified the pitch, inspiring a new generation of football stars. Throughout the action-packed week, participants savoured daily football sessions led by Owen, a team of UEFA-licensed coaches, and internet sensation Eman – popularly known as SV2 from his viral YouTube skills videos.

Dressed in their personalized Rascal training kits, young players aged from five to 15 seized the perfect opportunity to refine all aspects of their game, from tactics to technical skills. To add to the holiday experience, families enjoyed a memorable parents’ match, providing moms and dads with a chance to showcase their skills on the pitch.

Later this year, and in collaboration with Football Escapes, Rio Ferdinand will also be hosting a football camp from 28 October to 1 November.

He will be bringing the skills he learned whilst playing for West Ham, Manchester United and Leeds United plus the England national team. 

At Siyam World, we are undoubtedly a paradise for sports enthusiasts, offering exceptional facilities for both water and land sports. My passion for football, which began in childhood collection jerseys of football legends, is embodied in our FIFTA- regulation football field. We host many football aficionados, including owners of prized jerseys and past champions who still share a deep love for the game. Siyam World is where sportsmanship thrives, providing an unparalleled destination for active trave;ers, says Ausy Waseem – Resort Manager at Siyam World.
