The first edition of the "Goalkeeping Conference" is organized by the Goalkeeping Department of SL Benfica. Taking place on March 23rd, it will present and get together goalkeeper coaches from different backgrounds and nationalities.
FERNANDO FERREIRA (SL Benfica’s First Team Goalkeeper Coach / Head of Goalkeeping): "The goalkeeper position [GK] has specific characteristics which require a close individual and specialist support. The education and development of specific coaches is crucial for the development and evolution of the goalkeeper. With this conference, SL Benfica positions itself as a go-to institution for the development of GK coaches."
The event is aimed at those passionate about football, and more specifically, those interested in goalkeeping.
PEDRO MARQUES (Technical Director Youth Training SL Benfica): "A club with such ambitions as Benfica cannot live without the best professionals both on and off-the-pitch, being our staff development a goal we pursue every day. This conference is part of the CPD program for our coaches, but will also be available to colleagues from other areas and other clubs. We are confident that with the speakers being lined up and the opportunity for networking and knowledge share, everyone will take a lot from this day."
