The Betway Talent Search trials kicked off at the Nobisco Park in Tamale where hundreds of young aspiring footballers turned up to showcase their abilities.
The Talent Search initiative was setup to unearth football talents across the country between the ages of 18 and 25. This innovation in scouting fresh, uncut talent was initiated by Betway- Ghana’s leading sports gaming outfit, by way of showing their unwavering commitment to the development of sports in Ghana.
Expectations of the scouting team spear headed by Ghana’s former skipper Stephen Appiah intensified as the lads exhibited great dexterity, with some playing as defenders, midfielders, attackers and goal keepers.
This year’s seasoned scouting team which includes current Black Stars assistant coach Maxwell Konadu, Coach Eric Antwi of Lizzy Sports Complex, Godfred Adoube, Sam Johnson and Mohammed Gargo, all former Black Stars players will be travelling across the country to offer opportunities to young aspiring footballers.
Thrilled by the skills displayed by players, an elated Mohammed Gargo speaking to the media was highly impressed with the skills being exhibited by these young talents in Tamale.
“I am very impressed with the skills and zeal being showcased by these young talents. Many of us got into professional football through talent hunts and justifiers. This is a great initiative from Betway and I look forward to meeting more great young talents as we continue to visit other cities”.
To add to the excitement and to further engage the communities before and during the tryouts, the sport betting outfit deployed the Betway Obstacle Course, a groundbreaking platform to engage footballer loving fans and their communities. Winners of the Betway Obstacle Course walked away with amazing prizes including a motor bike.
