Lily Beach is set to welcome back Marcel Gurk, a multiple Guinness World Record holder for football freestyle, as part of the resort’s upcoming Easter programme.

The German star will lead workshops and put on two football freestyle shows during his stay from 15 to 23 April. Guests will be able to enjoy complimentary daily football freestyle clinics, join fun football matches or opt for private lessons on request for a fee.

“After our successful collaboration with him last year during Halloween and receiving glowing feedback from guests for creating an unforgettable experience for their kids and themselves, we knew that we had to bring him and his team back again,” said Desislav Gospodinov, Lily Beach’s director of sales and marketing. “During this Easter, to have someone like Marcel Gurk coming here is a huge opportunity for our guests to learn something novel such as football freestyling from one of the best freestylers in the world. This exciting activity will certainly be a highlight for our guests of all ages during this Easter and also an opportunity for some of our repeater guests who experienced the camp last year to come again and show how much they have improved and learned more tricks from Marcel as well.”

The reigning German football freestyle champion and a successful author, Gurk holds 10 Guinness World Records. He travels around the world as a football freestyler and social media star. During his stay at Lily Beach, Gurk will also be showcasing the resort on his social media, doing some football freestyle tricks throughout the island.
