In addition to the training sessions, the young athletes had the opportunity to participate in friendly matches (one in each age group) and gain valuable experiences against the academies of professional football clubs from the Greek Superleague. The players born in the years 2003-04 played against Atromitos FC, those born in 2005 faced Apollon Smirnis FC, while those that are born in the year 2007 competed against Olympiakos FC.
