High-flying Buruj Sports Academy will depart the shores of Nigeria on Monday, August 1, 2016 to participate in the Welsh Super Cup which kicks off three days later in Wales.
In order to have a robust coverage of the team’s participation at the tournament, Buruj Academy has concluded plans to co-opt Lagos Television (LTV8) with the media house’s camera crew already on standby to storm the Welsh capital to cover the competition.
In the light of this development, the organisers of the Welsh Super Cup, Team Tours Direct are relishing the prospect of having the presence of the Nigerian media at the event which they believe will strengthen sporting ties between Nigeria and Britain and have therefore urged the British Embassy to fast-track the process of issuing visas to the media house.
In another development, the Managing Director of Buruj Sports Academy, Dr Salaudeen Waheed has showered praises on the top brass of the Nigerian Football Federation and other administrative staff for their cooperation and support as preparations for the Ikorodu-based Academy’s proposed trip to the United Kingdom hots up.
Dr Salahudeen was particularly grateful for the manner Dr Emmanuel Ikpeme and other protocol officials of the NFF responded promptly in recommending the players and officials of the Academy to the British High Commission to be issued visas through an official letter dated 13th July.
The Nigerian team will play its matches at the competition at the University of Cardiff.
It is the second international tournament for Buruj Sports Academy in 2016 after they attended and impressed scouts at the International Cup in Dubai earlier this year.
