Dream Chasers, Dare to Dream
Twenty four kids, one coaching team, one dream.
Earlier this year 24 of the best Indonesian young talents embarked on the soccer adventure of their lives, joining a professional development program in England.
Under the tutelage of England legends Dennis Wise and Des Walker the boys underwent an intense training regime and a weekly competitive match against professional oppositions, ranging from the lower 3rd division sides all the way to Premier League's elite academy sides such as Arsenal and Chelsea.
Their lives in England were documented as part of an 18 episodes program, and their matches broadcasted live in their home country attracting as much as 4.7 million live streams during each game. The team is called the Garuda Select, and the program is set to continue until 2028.
On February 2020 the program will be replicated on a global scale, inviting talents from all over the world and placing them in the scenic town of Como, Italy , where they will train and compete against Europe's top sides. They will be guided by coaches from a top European club who are challenged to develop the boys and judged on how many of them will win a professional contract at European clubs within 6 months of training them.
