More than 1,000 keen footballers have registered for the first reality TV series in Croatia revolved around football.
The selected participants for the TV show ‘Utakmica Života’ will live and breath football for two months together with the 11 most talented players having the chance to play against an All-star selection of leading Croatian club Dinamo Zagreb.
The best player in the show will then win a 1-year scholarship contract with Dinamo Zagreb.
The TV series will be broadcast daily from 18 May 2018 on HNTV and YouTube.
“The interest in the show from young talent has delighted us. The entire professional team of this project will provide ideal conditions for the camp starting on May 12 in Zagreb. I believe that with this project, many people will change their lives and realise their football dreams,” said Ivan Rukavina, who together with former Croatian international Danijel Pranjic started this project.
Candidates will have to pass testing around the country later this month with 30 young players selected to enter the camp and show.
The project has had the backing of the likes of Croatian stars like Luka Modric, Ivan Rakitic and Mateo Kovacic, who have helped promote it on social media.
