One of the first projects on new Croatian football federation president Davor Suker's agenda is to build a football camp in Croatia, so the national team does not need to prepare for games and tournaments in neighbouring Slovenia. The location for the new camp in Croatia could be the Dalmatian seaside town of Makarska after plans were presented on Thursday, writes daily newspaper Jutarnji list.
Ante Sanader, the head of the Split-Dalmatia County together with the mayor of Makarska Marko Ozic Bebek and Josko Roscic from the Baska Voda council, have offered Suker and the Croatian football federation 70,000 square meters of land and a further 10 acres in Baska Voda on the Makarska Riviera to build the camp.
If the plan is accepted then the camp can be built almost immediately as the land is owned by the council. If the plan is accepted, it will then see the Croatian national team preparing in the attractive seaside area on the Dalmatian coast instead of in Catez, Slovenia.
