Also for the 2023-2024 season, Palermo renews its commitment to the development of a circuit of football schools affiliated with the Rosanero club, this year also expanding the boundaries to the other Sicilian provinces, in the name of sharing good sporting practices and rooting in the territory.
There are 15 sports clubs that this year make up the network of Palermo FC Official Schools, under the supervision of the Palermo Youth Team, led by Fabrizio Giambona.
Among the affiliations there is also an international one, ratified last October, with the Maltese team Melita FC. The partnership between the two clubs immediately activates a virtuous process for the valorization of young Maltese talents and the continuous transfer of technical and organizational skills between the sports staff.
The following are the clubs who have joined the “Official School Palermo” project:
ASD BLU LAND (SR)
ASD VIS PALERMO (PA)
POLISPORTIVA CALCIO SICILIA (PA)
ASD CASTELVETRANO-SELINUNTE (TP)
ASD S.C. COSTA GAIA ADELKAM (TP)
ASD ORATORIO SS. CIRO E GIORGIO (PA)
ASD ATHENA (AG)
VIVI DON BOSCO (ME)
NEW TEAM CALTANISSETTA (CL)
ASD NISCEMI FC (CL)
ASD VALLEDOLMO (PA)
ASD SCUOLA CALCIO SANGIOVANNESE (AG)
ASD LERCARA (PA)
ASD CARINI (PA)
MELITA FC (MALTA)
The collaboration has the aim of developing synergies capable of giving greater impetus and effectiveness to the respective projects to enhance the youth teams, to create excellent football schools in which to cultivate local talents.
Each affiliated club will make the children enrolled in the “Official Palermo School” wear exclusively clothing characterized by the traditional pink/black colors and the “Official Palermo School” logo. Palermo FC will provide the affiliated club with supervision and technical-organizational support in the management of the “Palermo Official School” through the planning of periodic meetings and other activities, making the professionalism of its collaborators available to help improve and streamline the functioning of the “Palermo Official School”.
At the end of the sports season, Palermo FC will have the right to enroll in its youth teams the athletes who are deemed most deserving, exercising pre-emption and thus guaranteeing the valorization of talents in the area.
Furthermore, thanks to the agreement, the staff and young athletes of the affiliated schools will be guests of Palermo FC in the Rosanero’s home matches at Barbera.
