Written by on April 30, 2022
Gov. Chukwuma Soludo has urged Bayern Munich FC of Germany to consider establishing an Academy in Anambra as part of an effort to deepen the game of football in Nigeria. Soludo made the request while welcoming the Bayern Munich technical team who were in the state for the National Youth Cup on Saturday.
The governor who spoke through Tony Oli, chairman of Anambra Sports Development Commission, said the state was happy to have provided a good football stadium which qualified the state to play host for the programme.
He said Anambra was home to football and promised to provide the enabling environment for a successful outing while expressing hope that youths from the state would make the final 10 players that would be selected for nurturing.
Obinna Edeh, Proprietor of VOE Foundation and representative partner of Bayern Munich in Nigeria said no fewer than 100 budding talents of age range 15-16 from 10 football clubs across the country were selected for the tourney.
