Charlton legend John Robinson is partnering with the club and community trust to set up several programs, ranging from a development academy, camps, and talent identification in Abu Dhabi, whilst also offering players opportunities to gain scholarships at the University of Greenwich.
Robinson said: “This is a great opportunity and I'm really excited about it. My Charlton story started back in 1992 and for this to be the next chapter - representing the club in its first overseas venture since Thomas Sandgaard's takeover - makes me very proud.
“We have a great partner in Abu Dhabi called PASS, who have over 1,000 children taking part in their weekly training programmes.
“The dream for us is to grow the club's international supporter base through our engagement with them and, in the long term, provide players the opportunity to experience what Charlton has to offer and hopefully have players a pathway into the club's academy and first team.”
