Double for the AVITA Resort****Superior
Austria and Nigeria training in the Bad Tatzmannsdorf FOOTBALL ARENA
The Bad Tatzmannsdorf FOOTBALL ARENA has matured into an absolute success concept since the UEFA EUROs 2008 and with its unique combination of training and regeneration, enjoys the trust of top teams from all over the world. With exceptional training and regeneration conditions, the teams acquire the finishing touches for the upcoming challenges at the AVITA Resort – the only UEFA-certified hotel in Burgenland.
This year is a truly special treat for footballers. The starting signal for the 2018 summer camps is happening straight away with a double package: the Austrian A national team and World Cup participants Nigeria are simultaneously preparing for high-class football challengers at the AVITA Resort.
Austria’s national team surrounding Captain Julian Baumgartlinger, David Alaba and Marko Arnautovic will encounter the best teams in the world in the coming "weeks of superstars". On 30 May, the World Cup host will be hosted in Innsbruck, on 2 June in Klagenfurt, World Cup champions Germany and on 10 June, the football wizards of Brazil. For the match against record-breaking World Cup champions Brazil, the team under Franco Foda will warm up at a team camp in the AVITA Resort from 6 to 9 June 2018
Highlight: Open training of the Austrian national team on 6 June at 5:00 p.m. in the Bad Tatzmannsdorf FOOTBALL ARENA.
From 3 to 11 June 2018, the Nigerian national team will also prepare for their upcoming football World Cup at the AVITA Resort. The "Super Eagles" - one of the most successful national football teams in Africa – reached the last sixteen of a football World Cup for the 3rd time in 2014, have won the Africa Championships three times and became Olympian champions in 1996. In Russia, Nigeria – currently No. 47 in the FIFA World Ranking – will meet Argentina, Iceland and Croatia in Group D. Nigeria is thus one of the few teams that will prepare for the FIFA WORLD CUP 2018 in Russia in Austria.
Hotel Manager Peter Prisching: "It is a commendation and an honour that these two top teams are pitching their training tents with us. My entire team is greatly looking forward to it and we will once again do everything to offer the teams the perfect conditions.”
