Marcel Gurk, a multiple Guinness World Record holder for football freestyle, is due to return to Lily Beach Resort & Spa for a second stint this year.

From 22 October to 31 October, the German football freestyle star will offer a complimentary five-day football freestyle clinic, a two-day football training class, put on two football freestyle shows and join fun football matches. Guests can also opt for private lessons on request for a fee.

“After multiple successful collaborations with him 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. During this Halloween and a time leading up to World Cup, to have someone like Marcel 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,” said Lily Beach’s Director of Sales & Marketing, Desislav Gospodinov.

“This exciting activity happening in tandem with celebrating the World Cup and your favourite teams, will certainly be a highlight for our guests of all ages during this School Holidays period (in Europe) and also an opportunity for some of our repeater guests who experienced the camp previously to come again and show how much they have improved and learn more tricks from Marcel as well.”

During his stay, the reigning German football freestyle champion and holder of 10 Guinness World Records will also showcase the resort on his social media with some football freestyle tricks on the island.

Lily Beach is also planning to celebrate the FIFA World Cup due to take place in November with speciality drinks and food of the major teams.

“In addition, guests joining the football event will get awesome goodies with t-shirts and water bottles and other awards up for grabs when winning special games held everyday after the trainings. We plan to have face painting available during this period as well so that guests can showcase their favourite team with fun face paint,” according to the resort.

“We urge all guests staying during this period to get in on the fun by bringing along and proudly wearing a jersey of your favourite World Cup team and also to make sure to bring a fun costume to wear during our annual Halloween Parade which happens on the 31st of October. Marcel will be also joining in with the Halloween festivities by bringing his own unique costume this year as well.”
