DSC Arminia Bielefeld cooperates with South African club

Bundesliga soccer club Arminia Bielefeld is expanding its international projects in South Africa. As the club announced on Tuesday, a cooperation with Maritzburg United was agreed. Accordingly, the focus should initially be on “digital training units and trainer training courses as well as the exchange of knowledge in various areas, especially in the promotion of young talent”.

Maritzburg is located in the province of KwaZulu-Natal and has played in the Premiere Soccer League, South Africa’s top division, since 2008. The club’s coach is the former Bielefeld coach Ernst Middendorp, and goalkeeping coach Rowen Fernandez is also a former Armine.

“We saw last year how great the unifying power of football can be across all borders,” said Arminia’s vice-president Maurice Eschweiler. Despite the great distance and the pandemic, various campaigns have already succeeded in “training young talents and coaches in this football-loving country”. The aim of the cooperation is to “connect Arminia Bielefeld internationally with people who love football”.

Arminia started its first international projects in South Africa, the USA and Japan last year. The new commitment in South Africa is intended to expand this cooperation.
