Posted : 07 March 2024

The organizers of the Magic Scouting Tourney have confirmed the date and teams that will compete in the first edition of the football scouting program in Lagos.

The competition's facilitator and former Nigeria international Coach Mathew Olorunleke said on Thursday that the tournament would be held at the Legacy Pitch, National Stadium Surulere, Lagos State.

"The competition will span from March 10 to March 15, and we expect that eight teams will compete in two groups, with standard four-team group pairings.

"The purpose of the tournament is to showcase the best young talents in Nigeria to top scouts from Europe, who will select the next big star in Nigerian football for a chance to thrive in Europe.

"The tournament aims to bring about good young players on the Romanian project for Africa.

"Rapid Bucharest, a top division side in Romania, and the Becali group, one of the biggest agencies in Romania, will send their scouts to the tournament," he said.

The financier of the Magic Scouting Tourney, Akanji Agboola, restated the tournament's goal, which was to help young players thrive and contribute to their development.

"The tournament aims to give young people the opportunity to develop skills and showcase them to the world, empowering them to take an active part in their lives," he added.

The eight teams that will compete in the maiden edition of the Magic Scouting Tourney are Ojodu City FC, SGFC Athletics, Ablaze FC, Magic Stars FC, Rolly FC, FC Bethel, Real Dream FA, and Power of de Cross SA.

Olorunleke added that draws for the tournament have been scheduled to take place on Saturday, March 9, at the National Stadium, Legacy Pitch.
