Remo Stars Sports Club (RSSC) have commenced the process of improving their Youth Development Section by affiliating with grassroots academics across the six geopolitical zones in Nigeria.

The Youth System at the club started in 2016 with a Pan Nigeria Youth Tournament hosted by Remo Stars at the Otunba Dipo Dina Stadium in Ijebu Ode, Ogun State, and many from that event have found themselves outside the shores of the country with CD Feirense in Portugal, FC Lori in Armenia, Fremad Amager in Denmark and the likes.

In a statement, the club Secretary Michael Onikute revealed that the affiliation is in a bid to help promote the younger ones into full-fledged professionals that will become household names in the nearest future.

He said: “We are actually looking at getting affiliated to 20 grassroots academics across the country with dedicated youth players and we might eventually jump the figure up in the nearest future because the club has a great project for the youths.

“We actually believe that is the best way to take the youth out of the street at the early stage of their career and help them plan a better future for themselves and their families, even for the country as a whole.”
