After years of training at Catez in Slovenia, the Croatian national football team will soon have a new training camp.
Work began Wednesday on a new football-camp building in Tuhelj in northern Croatia. The Croatian Football Association (HNS) called a special press conference at Mihanovic castle in Tuhelj to mark the occasion.
HNS chief Ante Markovic said: "This is an historic day for Croatian football. Here we will have everything that we need, which makes me extremely happy. Austria has 29 camps and earns twice as much from them as it does from ski tourism. This camp is just the first of many planned for the future."
Located on 13 hectares of land adjacent to the Tuhelj spa, the camp will feature six football fields, two of which will have artificial grass, a hotel with 160 rooms, a hall seating 500 people, a swimming pool, a running track, a gym and a sauna.
The camp will cost 90 million kunas (around 13 million Euros), most of which HNS will provide. It should be ready for use in two years.
