FCV Academy announce new partnership in Tanzania

FCV Academy and Sportslink are delighted to announce a new partnership giving players in Tanzania the opportunity to develop their game in the UK.

FCV Academy has seen a growing number of African players enrol for both our full-time football and education courses as well as our football-intensive development camps in the last ten years.

Sportslink was founded in March 2019 with its stakeholders having been in and around the game for the past eight years. SportsLink offers consultation, management, representation and athlete development services.

Graham Starmer, FCV International Football Academy managing director, said: “We continue to see players from many parts of the world attend our courses however Sportslink provides us with our first partner in Tanzania.
“Our focus is to help young players across the region take their game to the next level by improving their knowledge of football as well as developing their technical ability and providing them with opportunities in the game.”
“We are delighted to announce this partnership and have been impressed with the professionalism of Sportslink”

This partnership enables Tanzanian based players, who are interested in joining FCV Academy, to be evaluated before being offered a place on FCV Academy’s full-time course.

There will also be an opportunity for players to attend Short Courses and Summer Camps throughout 2020 including a chance to win a free place at some of this year’s Summer Camps. More details on this fantastic opportunity will follow.

Nassor Mohamed Suleiman, founder of Sportslink, is thrilled to be able to offer more young players the chance to develop their football in the UK.
“We are delighted to be working with FCV International Football Academy to provide young, aspiring players with a fantastic opportunity to improve their game."
"These are exciting times for Tanzanian footballers with the recent breakthrough of Mbwana Samatta in the Premier League. This partnership is yet another step in the right direction for Tanzanian football in general. We look to work tirelessly to further aid the footballing infrastructure and the development of athletes from all background situations with programs rendered by both FCV International Academy and SportsLink. If there was ever a time to get behind our children in supporting what they love, this is it!"

Players who are interested in joining FCV Academy should in the first instance register their interest with Sportslink at Tanzanite Park 3rd floor, Victoria, New Bagamoyo Rd. Dar-Es-Salaam, Tanzania.
