Right to Dream Academy will be one of Africa’s representatives at World Finals of the Manchester United Premier Cup which begins tomorrow.
The U-15’s qualified by beating Tunisian giants Esperance 4-2 on penalty shoot outs in finals of African Finals in May after a 0-0 draw in regulation time.
They will be joined by South African newcomers Rosina Sedibane Sports School in the 20th edition of the tournament.
Right to Dream Academy left Accra last Friday to prepare for the tournament.
The school currently enrols students from Ghana, Cote D’Ivoire, Burkina Faso, Benin and South Africa.
The Technical Director of RtD, Gareth Henderby said the tournament will present a good platform for his team to prove themselves.
“The MUPC World Finals are such a great opportunity for these young Ghanaian boys. Many of them love football with a passion, but lack the chance to prove themselves at higher levels nationally.”
Right to Dream Academy will face AC Milan, Real Madrid, Borussia Dortmund, UK champions Arsenal FC and tournament hosts Manchester United.
The 2013 Manchester United Premier Cup will run from August 6 to 9 in Manchester, England.
