Glo Academy screening records impressive turnout on day one

Glo Academy screening records impressive turnout on day one

Potential candidates for maiden Glos Soccer Academy going through pre-screening formalities

There was an impressive turnout on the opening day of screening for the maiden Glo Soccer Academy in Kumasi.

Hundreds of young talents between the ages of 14-17 thronged the Paa Joe Stadium (KNUST) from as early as 6:30am to get screened for what proves to be the biggest reality show in West Africa.

Over 70 potential participants had been successfully screened by 3pm on Monday.

The process was however delayed as registration centers had to be mounted to accommodate a large number of teenagers who sought to register at the venue instead of simply texting their personal details and preferred screening centers to the text code ‘3836’ provided for the purpose.

Despite this setback, officials were satisfied with the turnout and workdone on Day 1 of the two-day screening process in Kumasi.

‘‘The first day has been very encouraging; we may have been able to screen a much larger number of players if many of them had not decided to register personally at the screening venue, ‘’ Kayode Mobolade of the Events and Sponsored Assets Unit of Glo Mobile Ghana said.

“But by all indications, we will be able to screen twice as much the number we screened today.”

Selection team giving pep talks to potential candidates

The Kumasi screening ends on Tuesday at 5pm after which the selection team will head for the Northern Regional capital of Tamale for another two-day session from October 12.

The screening process in Ghana will end on October 18 after another two-day session in Accra at the Lizzy Sports Complex.

The selection process will then travel to six other venues in Nigeria and the Republic of Benin before a shortlist of 33 players will be made to enter the maiden Soccer Academy House in Nigeria.

Sixteen (16) finalists will be selected to attend a training tour of the Manchester United Soccer schools after one month of training with the others winning mouth watering prices.

To register in Ghana, prospective candidates for screening are expected to load GHC30 to their Glo line and text their name, age, and preferred screening location to 3836.
