Italian football clubs and football camps in London

Football is still the most popular sport in Italy and the UK. The amazing thing about it is that you can play it wherever you want. In a park, on the beach, in a square, what you really need is a ball and a friend to start off with. Playing amatory football is an experience almost all of us had in our lives but being good at it is quite a different matter ! So why not start learning how to play since childhood? There are plenty of football schools all through the UK and some Italian football clubs as well! Playing football with an Italian coach in an Anglo-Italian environment could be also a nice way to socialize and feel part of the Anglo-Italian community, sharing the Italian language and Italian football style with Italian coaches.
