StarTimes, official broadcasters of the German Bundesliga in Africa, have commenced the five-day training programme for 100 talented young Ghanaian footballers in Accra.
The programme, christened Bundesliga Football School, is a partnership between StarTimes and the Deutsche Fußball Liga (DFL) which started on Saturday at the Lord’s Wembley in Shukura with the participants being put through their paces by elite youth football coaches.
According to the Head of Marketing at StarTimes Ghana, Mrs Akofa Banson, the programme is a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) project which is targeted at developing Ghanaian youth football to the elite level.
“We are doing this as CSR project to project youth football in Ghana. That is why we are partnering the Bundesliga to run this programme so that we can have some elite talents for the various national teams,” she said.
The exercise will continue at the same venue on Sunday through to its climax on Wednesday with a public viewing of Bundesliga games with some German football legends led by Lothar Matthäus.
