Fijai United Soccer Academy in Ghana is gearing up for the 2023/24 league season with a significant boost from English Premier League side AFC Bournemouth.
The generous donation of 16 boxes of jerseys by AFC Bournemouth has left the academy and its CEO, Jacob Wemegah, expressing heartfelt gratitude.
Over the years, AFC Bournemouth has been a steadfast supporter of Fijai United Soccer Academy, providing them with replica jerseys and essential football equipment, including cones and training gear.
Jacob Wemegah, the CEO of Fijai United Soccer Academy, extended his appreciation, saying, “We want to say a very big thanks to AFC Bournemouth in the UK. They’ve been very helpful to us over some years now. Their continued support has been instrumental in our development.”
The donations from AFC Bournemouth have had a tangible impact on the academy’s growth. Fijai United Soccer Academy has consistently excelled and achieved milestones in Ghanaian football, thanks in part to the support they’ve received.
Jacob Wemegah proudly stated, “We’ve been able to qualify each year, making it to the WRFA Super Middle League under the Ghana Football Association. This year, we reached the semifinal stage and have also qualified for the MTN FA Cup, which is scheduled to be played in the coming weeks.”
Expressing their gratitude, Wemegah continued, “We want to say thank you so much, AFC Bournemouth. We are thankful to the supporters of AFC Bournemouth, the playing body, the entire management, and other sponsors of AFC Bournemouth. Your donations have had a profoundly positive impact on us. We are very grateful, and your generosity is truly making a difference. God bless you.”
