Spanish soccer legend David Villa will be making two personal appearances in Vancouver before the end of 2018.

The striker, who currently plays for New York City FC in the MLS, has 71 goals over four seasons with the club and is the all-time leading scorer for the Spanish National team.

Formerly a member of Valencia, Barcelona, and Athletico Madrid, he transferred to the MLS club in the summer of 2014.

Villa will be attending his “Meet and Play” youth camps with DV7 soccer, a training school and academy for players aged 6 to 13.

The camps focus on developing technical and individual skills of young players, creating smarter players through better game understanding and decision making, and sharing Villa’s personal style of play to help develop them further.
