Elite Youth Soccer Training in Germany – GFL’s Munich 2018
Germany is renowned for world-class player development. GFL’s youth soccer trips to Germany include playing against some of the best Bundesliga academy teams and the opportunity to be seen by top scouts. I know this. I have traveled to Germany with GLF’s Eddie Loewen.
Many youth soccer trips to Europe are merely opportunities to train at the soccer fields next to the big name clubs.
Very seldom is there interaction with top European coaches and usually, youth soccer teams from America play a club’s “community” team or play down so they can win — GFL Soccer is different.
“It will be an eye-opening, life-changing and inspiring experience that will elevate the player’s stage of development,” said Eddie Loewen, former German professional soccer player who proud to open doors for talented American youths.
GLF is about real opportunities with scouts and an immersion into the real German youth player development environment. “Players will develop a new and more professional mindset to training, competition, and self-discipline,” said Lowen who is a founder of GFL.
These are not trips to open your wallet but soccer experiences to open a player’s mind and help take their game to the next level.
Unlike other companies what organize soccer trips abroad, GFL is highly connected in the world of German soccer.
GFL has been selected to offer the DFB UEFA C & B License Course for soccer coaches in affiliation with the BFV (Berliner Fussballverband) and the DFB, the Deutscher Fußball-Bund, which is the German Football Association.
When you go on a GFL trip, you actually play against top Bundelisga Youth Academies. American youth soccer players are offered the opportunity to really discover their level of ability and be seen by scouts.

Players will also attend two Bundesliga Pro Games, be able to watch closed training sessions of FC Bayern and TSV 1860 Munich professional teams and actually be able to meet FC Bayern Players.
If a player has serious dreams of being their best, this is the type of trip that can provide the training and encouragement to take their game to the next level.
With hands-on training from former professionals turned coaches, Eddie Loewen and Arne Friedrich, this trip immerses players in the world of the beautiful game.
Friedrich played for Germany in five major tournaments including the 2010 World Cup roster in South Africa. One of the best defenders of the World Cup, he even scored a goal for his country in the quarter-final against Argentina.
THIS IS A PLAYER DEVELOPMENT ORIENTED TRIP.
Friedrich is a German football legend — the former defender played 82 times for the German National Team and was the Coach/Manager of Germany U18 National Team. This year, you might have seen Arne Friedrich on TV as an expert commentator on the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
The youth soccer player development trip to Munich is open to top girls and boys players.
