Speaking on what it takes to enroll into the academy, 27-year-old Ndazeh, said players pay tuition and not fees since most talented players are from poor backgrounds.

“There is a reality about football. If we look at it critically, we will see that most talented footballers are from poor backgrounds. I believe that God gave them this special talent to better their lives, that of their families and also their communities. After consulting with Alwin Thirok, the Technical Director of the academy, we decided that the fee is free but average players pay tuition of FCFA 70.000 while exceptional talented players are to enroll for free. Players also received two balls and two sets of training jersey.” Ndazey explained.
