Nara Club and Soccer Services Barcelona (SSB) have reached an agreement to use the Ekkono method both with the first team and in the club's Academy.
To do so, the Japanese club announces the creation of a Methodology Department, which will be managed by Ekkono, as well as entrust the management of the 1st team to an Ekkono Licensed Coach.
The main objectives of this collaboration, which will start in February 2021, are to build a game model and homogeneous identity from the Academy to the First Team, and to aspire in the long term to produce highest level young players.
Therefore, the main pillars of the project will be:
• Construction of a unified game model.
• Homogenization of the training methodology.
• Coaching education and tutelage to all club’s coaches
• Creation of a scouting plan to identify the best players
As the president of Nara Club Mitsuru Hamada states, “we are proud to announce the use of such a successful method as Ekkono in our club’s structure. After more than 10 years working together, I have been able to verify the benefits of using the method in professional teams, so I am convinced that Ekkono will help us achieve the established objectives and the growth of Nara Club. "
For his part, Miquel Farrerons, CEO of Soccer Services Barcelona affirms that "Japan is a very special country for us where we have 5 projects. We are very proud that Nara Club has decided to strengthen its structure through our consulting services. We want to thank the ownership and, especially the president, for their trust in us. We are convinced that the use of the Ekkono Method in its Identity version will accelerate the growth of the club, also improving its results at a sporting and social level "
With this new collaboration, the Ekkono Method continues to strengthen its foundations in Japan, where it has been present for more than 10 years.
