After about a year of planning, the Ondo State Football Agency, OSFA has launched the  Ondo State Football Academy at three zones.

During an inspection tour of the facilities, the vice chairman of OSFA, Elder Dickson  Adejube, said the take off of the academy was a fulfillment of the promise made by the  Ondo State governor, Dr Olusegun Mimiko, to engage the youths actively as well as to  reposition sports in the state.

The former chairman of Ondo State Football Association stressed that Governor Mimiko is  serious in his drive to develop football at the grassroots, adding that with the  successful flag off of the academy in Ondo, Akure and Owo, more towns will benefit from  the gesture in the next couple of months.
