Join World-renowned Football Freestyle Champion, Marcel Gurk, at Lily Beach this October

The Women’s World Cup has just ended but that doesn’t mean football fever is over. Lily Beach Resort & Spa is thrilled to be welcoming back Marcel Gurk, multiple Guinness World Record Holder for Football Freestyle, this coming October. Marcel, along with his talented brother, Pascal, will share their skills with our guests at an exclusive football camp from 22nd to 31st October 2023 so if you will be staying with us then, get ready to learn some tricks and take advantage of some football training!

Marcel is the reigning German football freestyle champion, a successful book author, holds 10 Guinness World Records (still holds three, including the most football “clipper” tricks performed in one minute (male), the longest time balancing a football on the shin, and most football neck throw and catches in one minute), and is one of the best football freestylers in the world. He made it to the semi-finals in ‘Das Supertalent’, and travels around the world as a football freestyler and social media star – thrilling the audience with his extraordinary tricks.

We are excited to be able to offer our guests daily training sessions with Marcel from 22nd to 26th October and with Pascal on 28th and 29th October. There is also the opportunity to book and pay for private lessons if they wish to have one-to-one training. If spectator sport is more to your liking, there will be thrilling live performances showcasing Marcel’s football freestyle skills that will leave you mesmerised and give you an insight into how the gravity-defying tricks are possible, including a special treat of tricks on Halloween!

Lily Beach’s Football Camp is the perfect way to add even more excitement to your holiday at our resort and offers children the chance to benefit from professional sports training, and the whole family some new skills to try out together. We hope to see you there – if you haven’t already booked your stay it’s not too late but don’t delay as previous years’ football camps have been extremely popular.
