Kuredu Resort Maldives to host Christmas football workshop with Rio Ferdinand, Football Escapes
Kuredu Resort Maldives has announced plans to host a special Christmas football workshop with a team from Football Escapes led by England legend Rio Ferdinand.
This great opportunity is open to all guests visiting the resort aged 5-15 years old.
Football Escapes provide premier football coaching courses in partnership with some of the finest and most exclusive resorts around the world, and this will be the third year they have partnered with Kuredu. The course will be led by former England and Manchester United star Rio Ferdinand, supported by a great team of UEFA licensed coaches, all of whom come from renowned English Premier League clubs.
“Why spend Christmas day slaving over the Turkey when you could be relaxing in the Maldives? Escape the grey skies and join me this Christmas for a holiday parents and the kids will never forget at Kuredu Island Resort & Spa. The island is beautiful, with incredible snorkelling, a nine-hole golf course and believe it or not, a full size 11-aside pitch! I brought the family here last year and we absolutely loved it. There’s so much to do and it’s all in the middle of paradise,” Rio Ferdinand was quoted in a statement issued by Kuredu, as saying.
The course offers five days of coaching with two hours of daily football activity. Each child that enrols in the course will be provided with a full kit, as well as a signed certificate and medal on completion of the week’s course.
This fantastic opportunity ensures the whole family has a fun-filled festive holiday. Whilst the children join Rio on the pitch, alongside Football Escapes’ fully licensed professional coaching team, the rest of the family can relax in utter bliss. And when the football’s over, everyone is welcome to join the team around the pool or at the bar.
Located on a 1,800 metre by 325 metre remote island in the northern atoll of Lhaviyani, Kuredu is accessible by a 35-minute scenic seaplane flight from the main Velana International Airport. This 4.5-star resort has 383 rooms, including beach and water villas, making it the second largest resort in the Maldives.
The island boasts a dive and snorkel centre, a water sports centre, a spa, golf and tennis courses, a kids’ club, and an extensive choice of restaurants and bars. Kuredu guests can also dine in 5.8 Undersea Restaurant at the neighbouring Hurawalhi Maldives resort.
