Talent scouting
"The African Football Academy (AFA) developed a far reaching plan to locate and scout the ‘cream of young Africa football’ in the places where they live and play, and take them to school to practice and educate them so that one day they can take off for a bride future in European and United Arab Emirates leagues to develop competitive skills in a run-up to the Africa Peace Cup 2008 Match and the 2010 World Cup in Africa. Only the very best can make it to the top!”

In cooperation with the Africa Peace Cup Foundation and support from star players around the globe, the Africa Football Academy (AFA) proudly introduces the first in its kind Social Awareness Football Investment Fund, with the goal to establish football-schools for elite talent in (West)Africa. During a Target Market Quest, AFA professionals will judge extremely talented football players (age 15-18y) from Guinea, Ivory Coast, Liberia, Mali, Senegal and Sierra Leone with the objective to offer 50 of them a football scholarship each year with full college education and master classes in the Mano River Region. The lucky few receive a full time residential scholarship with a hard commitment from the Academy not only to provide the intensive full time education and practice, but also to finance the cost of living of the players entire family during the time of education. This social engagement strongly differentiates the Africa Football Academy from any other fund in this field and will generate goodwill, sympathy and support around the world.

African players enrich the European leagues with athletic skills, technical tricks and a disarming smile. That is why everybody loves African players so much. Football is a source of pleasure and entertainment for millions unable to indulge in leisure pursuits out of the financial reach of many in Africa. Football is much more than pleasure in Africa - for the time of the game it is an escape from the problems that holds millions across the continent within its grasp. In African you do not often see the children of doctors or politicians playing the game of football. It is mainly people from the rural areas, from the small cities, from the less fortunate families. Africa bursts from hidden talent but how to reach them?
