Chairman of Abraysport FC Mr Abdullahi Yusuf has concluded plans to invite foreign football scouts to Ilorin through a scouting tournament named Super Talent Football Scouting Tournament (STFST).
The tournament is organized by First Class Sports Marketing (FCSM) in conjunction with Abraysports International, an organization led by Mr. Abdullahi Yusuf.
Ahead of the tournament, Mr. Abdullahi revealed that he is organizing this tournament to give back to the state by exposing the grassroots players to foreign opportunities.
He, however, confirmed that the process of selection of players will not be influenced.
“Football is business, and a lot of talents are wasting in the grassroots. I want to give back to the state by developing football in Kwara State.”
“The scouts are professionals that can identify talented players, and nobody will impose or recommend a player for them to pick.
Super Talent Football Scouting Tournament is an avenue for talented grassroots players in the country to showcase their talents and to secure a deal abroad.
The tournament begins on 14 – 18 June 2021, with all the matches to be played at the Kwara State Stadium.
A total of ten teams are expected to participate in the tournament.
