The Rwanda Football Federation (FERWAFA) have announced that through their unifying project that plays a role in the development of football in their country, Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) Academy Rwanda will welcome its first intake from September 2021.
A total number of 200 young Rwandans are set to join the PSG Academy.
The academy is part of a three-year sponsorship deal that was signed in December 2019 between Rwanda and the French football giants.
“The first intake will be defined by detections made by the Academy’s team of coaches, in 30 schools from Huye district to allow as many children as possible, boys and girls, to get this opportunity. In total, nearly 2,000 children will be observed, including nearly 500 girls,” reads the Federation’s statement.
“Beyond the detections, the coaches’ tour presents an opportunity to unite an entire region around the project, to develop football and its values in Rwanda.”
The academy was initially supposed to start operations in September last year, but the plans were pushed to a later date due to the Covid-19 related issues.
