Easter celebration with Football legends at Amilla Maldives Resort and Residences

PUBLISHED March 04, 2020

Amilla Maldives Resort and Residences will be kicking off Easter with a little help from two legends of football. Former Chelsea, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich winger, Arjen Robben, joined by the captain of the Maldives national team, Ali Ashfaq, will be leading a special football camp for kids.

Scheduled to be held between 7th and 10th April, Amilla Easter Football Camp 2020 will see the international duo coaching youngsters staying at the luxury Maldives resort, as well as pupils from the neighbouring Eydhafushi School, which is located on the most populous island in Baa Atoll - Eydhafushi. The kids from around the world will be able to come together to brush up on their footy skills, learn some new ones and have a lot of fun at the same time.

Amongst his many accolades, Robben played three times in the World Cup for the Netherlands and three times in the UEFA European Championship. He was named in the FIFPro World XI and received UEFA Team of the Year, he helped Chelsea bring home two Premier League titles and scored the winning goal for Bayern Munich in the 2013 Champions League Final.

Ashfaq plays locally in the Maldives for Club Green Streets and is also captain of the Maldives national team. Nicknamed Iron Man, he is the all-time top scorer for the Maldives and is widely considered one of the best players in South Asia. An icon of Maldivian football, Ashfaq helped the Maldives earn its first ever international cup at SAAF 2008 and was the first ever Maldivian footballer to transfer to a professional team overseas (Brunei DPMM).

Both players are delighted to be bringing their star power to Amilla Maldives and hope to help inspire a new generation of footballers to keep fit, enjoy the beautiful game and maybe even follow in their footsteps one day.

The theme of the resorts Easter celebrations this year is Willy Wonkas Chocolate Factory and there will be treats galore all over the island!
