VGC has been introducing public resources from the Wolfsburg Football School since 2014. It has organized the “Volkswagen-VfL Wolfsburg Football School Training Camp”, and invited VfL Wolfsburg Youth Training coaches to China to teach, providing opportunities for children in underdeveloped areas in China in terms of competition, exchange, experience, and sharing happiness. Through the use of football as a bridge to promote the cultural exchanges between China and Germany, VGC makes the children feel the infinite charm of football. So far, more than 3,000 Chinese youths from a dozen cities and regions across the country including Jinggangshan and Zunyi have gained the genuine theories of German youth training in football and practical experience training.
In 2015, VGC in partnership with the China Sports Foundation established the Volkswagen Group China Junior Football Development Fund. By working closely with the Chinese Football Association, as well as its joint ventures FAW-VW and SAIC Volkswagen, in response to the development status in such areas as football skill promotion among Chinese youths, talent reserve, and youth training system, VGC also launched three programs, the “Volkswagen Junior Football Camp,” the “Volkswagen Junior Football Summer Camp” and the “Volkswagen Junior Football Train-the-Trainer.” With a focus on the U10 to U12 age groups as the primary target in a bid to support the development of local youth football, VGC invited foreign senior coaches to give players and coaches professional lectures on training strategies, and strengthened the guidance ability of Chinese youth coaches in youth football training to teach how to organize a junior football training camp. The program aimed to strengthen the exchanges between China and Germany in culture and sports, establish a sustainable youth football culture, and provide comprehensive and systematic support for the development of Chinese youth football. To date, a total of 5,000 young football players and coaches have benefited directly from the projects, together with 45,000 indirect beneficiaries.
