Turf Season registration opens

01 August 2016, 12:23

Registrations open as Turf Season begins search for Nigeria's best youth football talent with the ultimate prize of a football contract in Europe at stake.

Turf Season is searching for the best youth football talent in Nigeria to take to Europe. If you have skills or know someone who plays great football and deserves to win the grand prize of a football career opportunity in Europe, please click here to sign up now or visit www.turfseason.com for more details.

Turf Season is a football reality TV project for promoting football talents. There is no doubt that Nigeria has a huge deposit of talents in the grassroots. The fact that we have won the FIFA U17 World Cup five times at this level already over-emphasizes this. However, the career opportunities for them have been very few and as such many beautiful football careers die early.

Turf season will celebrate these hidden gems and put them on Africa’s big screen expanding 20 weeks on cable and local television. With an estimated average of 50 million viewers per week across Africa, our project will be a robust platform for these players.  Turf Season will give participating young talents the much-needed profile to attract and secure football career opportunities both locally and internationally.

Turf Season will also be an opportunity for these upcoming talents to learn about the football career as it will offer not just entertainment but an avenue for the Nigerian grassroots football talents to learn the rudiments of the football career.

The focus is not just football as participants will learn other skills to help them prepare them for life after football.

Participants will be well-groomed and exposed to expert football knowledge and tutelage. They will also have to undergo physical, technical, tactical & psycho-social drills to merit a place in each episode. This will invariably teach audiences and players themselves what it takes to be on the turf.

Turf Season promises to be an exciting football project and it's open to fresh football talents between the ages of 15 to 19, who have no professional experience in the game.

To take part in the upcoming auditions sign up now or visit www.turfseason.com for more details.

For sponsorship and advertising enquiries, please contact the project manager on 08125316507 or via email: info@turfseason.com
