By Marcelo Bandeira
In order to further expand the network of contacts, ALsports held an institutional visit to the training centers of Cruzeiro Esporte Clube – Toca da Raposa I and II at the beginning of the second half of the previous year. Representing the company, the intermediary Arthur Lobo had the opportunity to know the operations focused on the preparation of the professional cast and the dependencies for the children of Raposa.
The Toca da Raposa I is the place pointed to the Cruzeirense base categories. The TC is structured with four training camps, one of which is synthetic grass, housing, locker room, gym, medical department, administrative offices, dining rooms, auditorium, video room and even libraries for young people to study. It does not stop there. The club also has a modern hotel for a wide program of athlete exchange and a school with elementary and middle school to enable the formation of the group. According to Arthur, space can be used quietly by the main category. “The structure intended for the base is from another world.”
Already the Toca da Raposa II is where the professional cast is. The celestial training center counts on four fields, a high level medical department, thermal swimming pool, sports court, solarium, restaurant, hotel more than 25 apartments and an infrastructure for the leisure of athletes, with cinema and games rooms. “It is considered one of the most modern structures in world football. I would like to congratulate the club for its professionalism, “he added.
It is with great satisfaction that we at ALsports are grateful for the receptiveness of Cruzeiro’s football manager, Marcone Barbosa. Click here to check the photos of the visit.
