105,000 Naira raised so far

IMG_20160109_111520Welcome to Maracana Stadium.

Coach Michael, has been coaching teams and youths for years at this stadium. Training stars like Brown Ideye and Odion Ighalo. Behind him was a chalked up name “Njoku” who recently had a tribute match organized for him after securing a move to play professionally in Finland.

The stadium is a critical part of AJ’s landscape … aside from the fact that it discovers/groom many of Nigeria’s soccer talents it also plays a much more important role. Per Coach Michael, the stadium sucks in youths from the streets and pulls them away from trouble/crime.

But the stadium is largely neglected, grass is overgrown, there are no flood lights and no seating for players/fans. Fixing the stadium will have a huge impact in the community.

Coach Michael knows this and is already working on raising N150,000 to clear the stadium bushes as a first step … he has been writing letters to Government officials but has not gotten much response yet. Basically he needs our help, the current target is just N150,000 if we can raise that amount we can get one little goal checked off “clearing the stadium.” To help out you can send donations 0064206894 Diamond Bank Okechukwu Ofili or paypal at oaofili@gmail.com include the hash tag #AJStadium

PS: Whatever I get before Sunday January 10th at 12 midnight is what I will send. I will also provide pictures to show the progress.
