Experience the Greek life
Greece is a country that you should visit, at least once in your life. Not only is Greece the birthplace of democracy, philosophy, theatre, and the Olympics; the affluent historical past of the country has shaped significant universal values we hold today.

Kai Carroll, 18, Australia
“It’s really cool to come and train with Aiolikos FC, to see how football is played in Europe and have a chance to get better. It’s a great way to be seen and maybe have a chance to play football professionally.
In addition, it’s a great life experience, because you learn a lot about a different culture and you meet great people. Lesvos is a very nice place to be and an awesome place to play football. Here, it’s like a family. Everyone takes care of you, makes sure you have everything you need. I fully recommend it.”
Thomas Pelino, 18, California, USA
“The program focuses on young players. It’s a great first step to get playing time and achieve your dreams hopefully, wherever you want to go. The atmosphere is amazing, the players are really nice, I couldn’t ask for anything more.
Lesvos is fantastic. I love the island. Especially for me, coming from California, the weather is cool and the people are so nice. I always wanted to come to Greece. It was on my bucket list. So, when this opportunity came, I didn’t think of it twice. And I like it a lot.”
