Nine-time Nigeria Premier Football League champions Enyimba are on the verge of sealing a partnership deal with the Norwegian side Hamkam FC.
The club's Sporting Director, Ifeanyi Ekwueme, said the partnership would be of immense benefit to the youth team.
According to him:
"This is one of the numerous benefits of having a sound Chairman in the person of Kanu Papilo Nwankwo, 'FIFA Ambassador,' and we are indeed grateful to His Excellency, the Executive Governor of Abia State, Dr. Alex Otti, for putting a round peg in a round hole," Ex-International Ekwueme noted.
He revealed that the People’s Elephant youth team would be trained by the European club's officials with a plan to select the best to further their careers abroad.
“It’s a partnership deal between Enyimba and a team in Norway,” he stated.
“Hamkam will be sending their Sporting Director, Team Manager, and club officials to train our youth team as well as watch our main team also during a seven-day program, and at the end, the lucky players will join the team.”
