La Naranja Mecánica
The soccer project, La Naranja Mecánica, is named after the nickname that was given to the Dutch national soccer team by the people of Latin America. Since the early 1970s Dutch football has had a good reputation for its attractive offensive style of play.
This attractive way of playing came about, among other things, because this small country developed for years a good structure and adequate training to play soccer at the highest level. Our La Naranja Mecánica soccer project works according to this structure and this training, adapted to the Colombian culture and the local population.
This project runs at several homes located in the city center and we operate independently in the Carambolas and Bello Oriente neighborhoods (comuna 3). In total, around 250 children participate in the activities of the soccer project, boys and girls between 6 and 18 years old.
