    The Seyi Akinwunmi (North-East) Charity Football Tournament will comprise of 18 (eighteen)
    students from each of the North East States as well as 18 (eighteen) each from 2 (two) invited teams
    from an academy in Jos and from an IDP Camp in Borno respectively, making a total of 144 (one

    The objective is to use the tournament to spread the
    message highlighting the value of amalgamating football and education and convince the children,
    their parents and their communities in this regard.

    Each of the Students will be given school bags
    and materials to aid their education, football jerseys and other prizes.

    In addition we will give
    scholarship grants worth N150, 000.00 (one hundred and fifty thousand Naira) to the best players
    from each of the participating States while the host State will have an extra slot for the scholarship
    grant.

    The Foundation will also once again give the contingent from the IDP camp, a special grant
    worth N250, 000.00.(Two hundred and fifty thousand Naira)
    We expect all 6 (six) states in the North-Eastern region and the 2(two) invited teams to each arrive
    with a 20 man delegation (18 players +2 officials) on the 18th September 2019.
