The Chief Executive Officer of Tamale Utrecht Football Academy, Alhassan Abdulai has predicted a smooth run of development at the club after an equally successful 2013 which saw the Academy welcoming the U-17 side of their parent club in Holland, FC UTRECHT.

2013 saw tremendous improvement with regards to the general development of the Academy. The commencement of the Division One league came off in the middle of the year and it hasn’t been bad as they occupy the third position ahead of the resumption of the second round.

The CEO speaking to indicated the new year brings new things and as such management is putting in new ideas to change the face of TUFA in 2014.

“looking at tufa in general, 2014 is a big year, is one of the construction year I will say because there are a lot of projects on the pipe line. New things and new development is our focus this year. Tufa have a good program for the three northern regions which will be put on paper and later see to it’s practical development”

“For the division one I think we are not doing badly at all, though qualifying to the middle league is not our main priority but it will be interesting if that happens and u can see the technical team is doing a good job to put us there. We want to see if we can secure all points in the second round and that mean we can compete at the top. management is putting it’s wait behind to bring quality to the team.

AlHASSAN Abdulai said the visit of the U-17 side of their parent club FC UTRECHT has helped the young boys in the Academy, he is optimistic the ex-change program which also saw three of tufa boys travelling to Holland  will continue to develop the potential the boys have. He stated tufa is designing certain projects which will help our communities and benefit the privilege in the society.
