The TopTekkers International Final recently took place in Manchester, England. It was an amazing event hosted by some quality coaches and the players that took part showed exactly why they were selected to compete in the inaugural competition.

The event is primarily a competition between some of the best players from around the globe in certain age groups who have qualified via the regional and national camps from last year and the early months of this year. 

The players took part in numerous training sessions over the week where they took on challenges, inputted scores and got assessed by the coaching team in a bid to become the first ever TopTekkers International Champion! 

"It's been amazing, just to see the growth from the session that we did in Florida and to now. Even just from the last couple of days has been amazing, in the footwork and his aggressiveness on the pitch as well." - Barry, Parent.

Not only did the players get to be coached by some brilliant coaches they also got to experience training at some of the best venues in the country including Wolverhampton Wanderers training ground, Lilleshaw Hall National Sports Centre and St Georges Park, the home of English football.

"What makes this week so special, not just for the players but for the families as well, is being immersed in England and this soccer culture that exists here." - Paul Bright, TopTekkers Finals Head Coach.

Between training sessions, the players and their families were taken on tours of some of the best stadiums in England including Old Trafford, Manchester United and The Etihad Stadium, Manchester City. They even got to experience an English Premier League game on the opening weekend of the season at Turf Moor between Burnley and Manchester City!

"Totally eye-opening in my experience. Sightseeing, going to the different stadiums and seeing how things are so different from the US." - Rick, Parent.

Watch the video below to see a short recap of the event and what some of the players, parents and coaches had the say about the event.
