Michael May Academy players conducted their first training session in Nairobi on Wednesday. This follows a recent partnership with Utawala Star Sports Club, with the academy set on establishing a permanent base in Kenya, with the goal of becoming the best football academy in the region. The football academy will focus on youth and children, with the goal of developing their football talent and providing opportunities for growth and scouting. They train every Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday from 10 am – 12 noon, during the holiday, and on Saturday from 9 am -11 am during the school term. Michael May Football Academy, which has its headquarters in the United Kingdom, also has an academy in Nigeria. “I’m excited to start such an exciting program in Kenya which is home of immense football talent which we want to help nature and expose to the world,” said Michael Ranmi, the academy director in a recent interview. The academy has a vision to build a community not just for football excellence, but an academy where youngsters can learn the interpersonal and professional skills to make them a success in whichever road life takes them down. The mission that the academy has set is to build a fulcrum of football talent for the national team and international football clubs.
