Ismail Ahmed, CEO of WorldRemit explained:

“By making it easier to send money, we help our customers do more for those they care about. Our customers are working hard to use the opportunities they have been given to support their community and we believe we should follow their example.

“When we set up our partnership with Arsenal, one of our goals was to reward hard-working individuals within the community. Football connects people from all walks of life so this was a natural place to start.”

Simon McManus of Arsenal Soccer Schools said:

"In this Centenary year of Mandela, it is a fitting time to recognise and reward those individuals who have harnessed the power of sport for the benefit of young people across Africa.

“A strong commitment to the community is one of the values we share with our partners at WorldRemit and together we hope to build a lasting legacy and to shine the spotlight on these unsung heroes who give up their time to help to deliver a brighter future for others.

"We are looking forward to working with all the coaches that join us in London as part of the Future Stars programme."
