VFL Wolfsburg Fans Compete in PK Contest During Team Training at IMG Academy
VFL Wolfsburg, the Regionalliga League soccer team from Wolfsburg, Germany, is training at IMG Academy this week in preparation for the Florida Cup 2017. They’ve brought with them a group of loyal and enthusiastic fans all the way from Germany, who have been supporting the team at their training sessions and matches in Florida all week. On Tuesday, IMG Academy held a Penalty Kick Fan Contest at Wolfsburg’s morning training session, to see if the fans had taken any soccer tips, tricks, or knowledge away from spectating at the team’s practices – And after watching the PK contest, it’s safe to say that they did!
Four of the Wolfsburg fans battled it out, shooting against Wolfsburg goalkeeper, Nick-Walter Nürnberger, until they missed or it was saved. After several great shots to the back of the net, Mathias Meier of Wolfsburg, Germany, came out victorious. For his outstanding performance, Meier will take home a 1-week camp at IMG Academy as a souvenir!
VFL Wolfsburg will face EC Bahia at 7pm EST on Thursday, Jan. 12 at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex (Orlando, FL) in the Florida Cup 2017.
