From San Diego to Egypt: FC Nordsjaelland's Training Camps Connecting Community

FC Nordsjaelland women team training at Right to Dream Egypt

The global Right to Dream community embraced a unique opportunity for growth and exchange in January.

FC Nordsjaelland men's team strategically chose San Diego, home to our newest MLS club San Diego FC, and Right to Dream Academy, for their winter training camp. Simultaneously, FC Nordsjaelland women's team headed to Cairo, where they prepped for the rest of the season at Right to Dream Egypt Academy.

During their stay in San Diego, FC Nordsjaelland men visited the construction site of the San Diego Academy and Snapdragon Stadium, the future home of San Diego FC. The visit underlines a community-wide commitment and keen interest in developing new platforms for more talents to thrive.

Meanwhile, the women's team found a unique home at our academy in Egypt, forming connections beyond the field. They engaged with and trained alongside Egyptian Women’s Premier League side TUT FC Women's Team, part of the Right to Dream community. Such interactions foster an environment that not only celebrates diversity but also deepens the understanding of each other’s journeys and dreams.

These experiences exemplify the interconnectedness of our global community, spanning Ghana, Denmark, Egypt, and the United States. They reinforce the belief that learning and growth extend beyond borders.

Chris Sargeant, Head Coach of the FC Nordsjaelland Women's Team, captured the essence of the experience, describing it as "an amazing cultural journey that left a lasting impact on the squad. It's always healthy to experience new cultures."

As the winter training camps wrap up, the impact on the global Right to Dream community resonates far beyond the pitch, echoing some of the community’s core values: learning, holistic development, diversity, and understanding.

More than just advancing our game, it's about building a global community connected by a shared love for football and a commitment to mutual growth.
