IDA is proud to announce our newest international partnership with FC Deren, professional youth club in Deren, Mongolia. Starting in 2022, IDA will provide players and staff with various development opportunities and pathways into Europe and the United States.
As the newest IDA Club Partner, FC Deren will gain access to IDA’s elite residential academy programs, high performance training camps, international tournaments and events, US college scholarships guidance, and more. The club recently travelled to Salou, Spain to compete in the inaugural Surf Cup International Tournament Powered by IDA. FC Deren youth players displayed their talent on the global stage as they played against some of the top European and international clubs.
“It has been an incredible experience for our young players” said Christian Wolf, FC Deren CEO. “The organization of the event was superb, and we left Salou thinking we would love to collaborate more with IDA”. FC Deren U12 and U14 had the opportunity to compete against elite youth football academies, such as FC Barcelona for example.
“We have many talented players in Mongolia who can benefit greatly from international exposure and experience,” Christian continues. “This partnership will provide those pathways and opportunities necessary for our players to maximize their potential.”
Rick Angelicola, IDA Director of Global Partnerships said, “Every player is unique. We want to empower players to excel at the highest levels as athletes, students, and most importantly as young men and women that make a difference. As IDA continues to expand, it’s important that we partner with the organizations like FC Deren that share the same core values. We’re excited for what’s to come.”
