Footballers along the East Bank corridor will get an opportunity to hone their skills in the intricacies of the football development when officials of the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sport stage the Football Academy 2014 at the Grove Playfield, EBD August 18-22 next.

Officials are also intent on promoting the development of football while committing to creating opportunities for young footballers. They said that the ultimate goal is to assist the ball weavers to become professionally involved in the sport through education and involvement in competitions and leagues at the community and national level.

Further, the programme is meant to provide support to member associations to organize players in the promotion of football within the country while improving the knowledge and competencies of those youngsters in the area of football development.
