Young Talent High Performance Center 'Sports Park Red Devils'
At 1. FC Kaiserslautern, we take our responsibility to provide a platform for young players to develop their talents very seriously. Since the year 2000, young talented FCK players have been trained at the 'Sports Park Red Devils'. The area of 27,000 square meters embraces four turf fields and two artificial turf fields as well as an office building. It is the location, however, that is particularly remarkable for the Fröhnerhof in Mehlingen.
Surrounded by the Palatinate Forest, but still only eight kilometers away from the Fritz Walter Stadium, the 'Sports Park Red Devils' offers talented young players ideal possibilities and facilities to train their physical fitness.
There are, for example, six running tracks in a hillside location for uphill and downhill sprints, an 800 meter long running track made of bark mulch as well as a hillside running trail.
Concerning the organization, the 'Sports Park Red Devils' is well set too. Konrad Fünfstück, head of the Young Talent High Performance Center, Dirk Walter, coordinator of the U9 to U11 teams, and Helmut Zahn, coordinator of the U12 to U15 teams, are in charge of the 15 youth teams and the amateur team of FCK. “Everything is close at hand, there are no big distances; consequently, things can be arranged quickly,” Konrad Fünfstück points out and adds: "Most important, however, is that the lads love playing here with us at the 'Sports Park Red Devils'."
