INVESTMENT SYMPATHY FUND
"Quest for passion"
Football is a source of pleasure and entertainment for millions unable to indulge in leisure pursuits out of the financial
reach of many in Africa. Football is much more than pleasure in Africa - for the time of the game it is an escape from
the problems that holds millions across the continent within its grasp. Perhaps Brazil has the best football players in
the world and Europe the richest, but Africa is the cradle of passion and joy. African players enrich the European leagues
with athletic skills, technical tricks and a disarming smile. That is why everybody loves African players so much.
In African you do not often see the children of doctors or politicians playing the game of football. It is mainly people
from the rural areas, from the small cities, from the less fortunate families. Africa bursts from hidden talent but how
to reach them?.
"The African Football Academy (AFA) developed a far reaching plan to locate and scout the ‘cream of young Africa
football’ in the places where they live and play, and take them to school to practice and educate them so that one
day they can take off for a bride future in European and United Arab Emirates leagues to develop competitive skills
in a run-up to the AFRICA PEACE CUP 2008
and the 2010 World Cup Football in South Africa. Only the very best can make it to the top!”
In cooperation with the Africa Peace Cup Foundation and support from star players around the globe, the Africa Football
Academy (AFA) proudly introduces the first in its kind Social Awareness Football Investment Fund, with the goal to
establish football-schools for elite talent in (West)Africa. During a Target Market Quest, AFA professionals will judge
extremely talented football players (age 15-18y) from Guinea, Ivory Coast, Liberia, Mali, Senegal and Sierra Leone with the
objective to offer 50 of them a football scholarship each year with full college education and master classes in the
Mano River Region. The lucky few receive a full time residential scholarship with a hard commitment from the Academy not
only to provide the intensive full time education and practice, but also to finance the cost of living of the players
entire family during the time of education. This social engagement strongly differentiates the Africa Football Academy from
any other fund in this field and will generate goodwill, sympathy and support around the world.
Camera teams and other media from regional/international television stations are invited to follow this unique reality
Quest for football idols - to inform, entertain and update viewers frequently of the progress made by the future
'Stars of Africa'.
Preliminary research indicates that in 2 to 3 year time AFA would be in a position to present the first talents ready for
the big step to Europe or the United Arab Emirates. This will inspire more young players to participate in next
year quests and motivate investors, sponsors and advertisers to provide the required funding to successfully
establish this prestigious social investment fund. The Academy’s return on investment contains commission fees on
future contracts and participation from clubs, sponsors and industry.
