Futureseed Nigeria Soccer Talent Quest is setÂ to search for 30 grassroots playersÂ in theÂ female and male categories, that will go to Europe for training tour.
The project coordinator, Micheal Obiego, confirmed to Grassroot Soccer Guide that they have designated someÂ centres where the screening exercise will hold.
Some of the citiesÂ selected for the exercise includeÂ Lagos, Ibadan, Akure, Asaba, PortÂ Harcourt, Aba, Enugu, Markurdi, Minna and Kano.
Others are Yenagoa, Calabar, Kaduna, Owerri and Osogbo.
Obiego said they will first pick 110 players in the male and prune them to 15.
â€œFor the female players, we will pick 70Â playersÂ from the centres before we select 15Â players that will make the final list.
â€œ We will now camp the 30 players, both male and female, for some weeks before we take themÂ to Europe on a training tour, he said.
