Marbella Football Center manages the stay and match of the Norwegian national team on the Costa del Sol.
On the occasion of this great news, Marbella Football Center organised a presentation of the arrival of the Norwegian national team at the Carmen Thyssen Museum in Malaga. The event was attended by various authorities such as the Mayor of Málaga Francisco de la Torre, José María Arrabal (Junta de Andalucía), Rune Pederssen (Norwegian Football Federation), Margarita del Cid (Turismo Costa del Sol ).
Next Saturday 27th March, Malaga and its stadium La Rosaleda, will host the international match between the Norwegian national team and the Turkish national team, an official qualifying match for the World Cup Qatar 2022.
The Norwegian national team has chosen the Costa del Sol as the venue for this international break. The circumstances of pandemic and restrictions in the Norwegian country, have given the opportunity to our city to host this important meeting.
Coinciding with the fact that the Norwegian national team will play another match on the 24th as visitors against the national team of Gibraltar, Marbella Football Center proposed to the Norwegian Federation to play their qualifying match against Turkey at La Rosaleda stadium.
Thus, the Norwegian national team will be concentrated in the facilities of Marbella Football Center from the 19th of March; next 24th they will play in Gibraltar and the 27th will be the match in Malaga, Norway vs Turkey.
The match will be the second match of the qualifying phase for the World Cup Qatar 2022. In a group G made up of the Netherlands, Gibraltar, Latvia, Montenegro, Turkey and Norway.
Norwegian football knows the Costa del Sol to perfection and most of the country’s first and second division teams are concentrated in our province every season. The Marbella Football Center facilities are already known by the Norwegian Football Federation with the arrival of youth teams in recent years.
Marbella Football Center, together with our organising agency Football Impact, is a reference in football in concentrations and pre-season stages of professional football teams that choose our province when preparing for their leagues or important matches, as is the case of the Norwegian senior national team.
With several high performance centres for football in the province of Malaga, the Costa del Sol has become the preferred destination when it comes to organising their pre-season training camps, making use of the wide range of hotels and the good climate.
This meeting has even more media relevance, as its star, Erling Haaland, is the most outstanding striker in the world at the moment and a target for big clubs. A team made up of other great players such as Martin Odegaard.
Marbella Football Center, La Rosaleda and Málaga will be the home of the Norwegian national team.
