It is with great pleasure that we announce that our player, who further improved at this Football Improvement Centre, has made their first international signing.
Cristhian Garcia, who initially came to our Olympiacos Melbourne Helping Kids Football Centre, has just signed with Cypriot professional club, Olympias Lympia. Christhian will now proceed to completing his medical before he begins his first game.
All staff and teammates are beyond delighted with the results achieved. His commitment to being helped allowed him to progress through our different initiatives, and ultimately achieve this outcome.
Cristhian will now be playing for the Cypriot 2nd division professional club where he can begin his professional European journey.
CEO Steve Papadopoulos said “We are over the moon with the results from Cristhian. At 31 years of age, and with a young family, he remained committed and wanted to achieve his dream. We aim to help anyone that comes to our centre, no matter their age or circumstance. It’s the equal opportunity we give to everyone that’s what matters to us”.
Christhian came to the Olympiacos Melbourne – Helping Kids Football Centre after migrating to Melbourne from overseas. He found a place of refuge, surrounded by coaches and teammates who cared for him as a person. This allowed him to grow as a person as well as proceed through our initiatives and improve his skill.
On completion of the Helping Kids Football Centre, Cristhian proceeded to our Football Improvement Centre where he improved his skills to play better for his team.
His passion continued to grow where he became committed to playing professional football in Europe.
“Thank you Olympiacos Melbourne, I could not have done it without your help”, stated Cristhian.
We wish Cristhian all the best in his medical and look forward to seeing him realise his professional dream.
