By BBN Staff: Jardel Muschamp, 16, son of Belizean football legend Hilberto Hilly Muschamp, is making Belizean football history by being one of only three candidates to be selected for FC Barcelona’s PreAcademy Team.
Muschamp was among 68 candidates from 27 states in the US and four different countries that participated in the Baca Academy tryouts from August 10-12 in Casa Grande Arizona and was chosen for his all-around exemplary performance.
In the formal invitation letter to join the Baca Academy for the 2018/2019 school year, Miha Kline, director of recruiting and soccer operations told Muschamp that he has a “very bright future” in the academy.
“We were very impressed by the level of your talent, your performance on the field and thoroughly enjoyed getting to know you off the field as well,” Kline said.
Hiberto Muschamp told Breaking Belize News today that the Academy has given out the majority of scholarships but is checking to see what they can offer his son. Muschamp said that he will be notified on Monday how much they can offer and what he will need to find to supplement the tuition which stands at US$69,500 per year.
“The support from Belizeans has been tremendous, we’ve been getting calls from people that want to help, but we still don’t know how much we will need,” Muschamp explained.
