New Delhi, Dec 7 (PTI) Coaches from European nations such as Denmark are set to conduct a two-day training session for the national capital region's U-19 footballers from various schools.

The sessions will be organised at the Ambedkar Stadium on December 11 and 12.

No registration fee will be charged, the city's football association said.

The move comes following a two-day Indo-Danish Sports Week.

Indo Europe Sports and leisure Council, an organisation registered with the Ministry of Corporate Affairs, was formed in 2016 with an aim to promote relations between India and Europe through sports and leisure activities, to promote and develop football among the youth of the country.

The council has so far organised six coaching camps and 10 UEFA Pro License coaches visited India in the last two years
