The second edition of the Seyi Akinwunmi Charity Mini-Tournament will take place at the Campos Square, Lagos on Sunday, 27th December 2015.
The chief organizer, Barr. Seyi Akinwunmi, who is the 1st Vice President of Nigeria Football Federation, confirmed on Friday that the programme, which first edition held with aplomb last year, will start at noon on Sunday.
Conceived as a special project to give back to the society, by an individual who is much in love with the young ones, the Seyi Akinwunmi Charity Mini Tournament is the eponymous charity event organized by the Seyi Akinwunmi Charity Foundation.
Its objectives include rehabilitation of ailing ex-international footballers. Embedded therein also is a Courage Education Foundation (CEF), a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the empowerment of the Nigerian child through the provision of quality education available to all Nigerian children irrespective of sex, faith or ethnicity, as well as Consolidation of The Future Stars Project, a grassroots football development program targeted at kids (mainly under 13 years of age) and hinged on the binary factors of sporting and academic excellence.
As happened last year, several youth teams in different categories (male and female) have signed up to showcase their skills at this year’s event, with NFF President Amaju Pinnick and Seyi Akinwunmi himself set to display in the veterans’ game that rounds off the program.
