Ikos Resorts Partners with Football Escapes to Offer WorldClass Kids Coaching at Ikos Andalusia

New Family-Friendly All-Inclusive Resort to Offer Coaching by Former Premier League Footballers Robbie Keane and Bobby Zamora

Ikos Resorts is delighted to partner with Football Escapes, to offer two coaching programmes for youngsters led by former Premier League players at the new Ikos Andalusia in Spain, opening its doors for the first time on 1st April 2021.


The first programme will take place during the Easter school holidays on 12th – 16th April 2021 and will be led by Robbie Keane, former premier league striker for Tottenham Hotspur and captain of the Ireland’s football team for 10 years. The second course will take place during the summer school holidays on 26th – 30th July 2021 and will be hosted by Bobby Zamora, former Premier League striker for West Ham United and Fulham FC who also represented England on the international stage.


Children of all abilities aged between 5 and 15 will have the opportunity to brush up on their ball skills set against the stunning backdrop of Ikos Andalusia with two hours of daily coaching across five days for both programmes, whilst parents can cheer on their budding footballers by the sidelines. Each child that enrols on the course will be provided with a full Football Escapes kit including a personalised shirt, shorts, and socks, as well as a signed certificate and medal on completion of the course.


Ikos Andalusia is a brand-new luxury all-inclusive resort from the award-winning Ikos Resorts, crowned the world’s best all-inclusive resorts in 2020’s TripAdvisor awards*, and the group’s first property in Spain. Following the successful launch of Ikos Resorts’ Infinite Care Protocol last season during which zero COVID-19 cases were recorded, Ikos Andalusia will open its doors for the first time with the same best-in-class health and safety measures in place and an emphasis on space and privacy.


The 411-room hotel will feature spacious suites for families spread out across its expansive 21 acres, eight outdoor pools with both adults-only and children’s pools, kids clubs, and a range of off-pitch outdoor activities for the whole family to enjoy including one complimentary green fee at Los Naranjos Golf Club, stand-up paddle boarding, canoeing, tennis, and bicycle hire. Families can sample the resort’s vast culinary offering including seven al fresco restaurants and signature à la carte menus curated by Michelin starred chefs, safe in the knowledge that spacious seating arrangements ensure social distancing. The elegant beachfront resort is located 55-minutes from Malaga airport, 20-minutes from the cosmopolitan centre of Marbella and 15 minutes from the historic town of Estepona.
