Ex-Real Madrid star Salgado headlines Dubai U13 qualifier in Ghana

Centa14 Sports and Entertainment, in association with the Spanish Soccer Schools in Dubai and MS2, headed by former Real Madrid defender Michel Salgado, are proud to present the U13 Dubai Intercontinental Football Cup Ghana Edition, which will take place on 2-3 December at the Lizzy Sports Complex in East Legon, Accra.

The Ghana Edition of the Dubai Intercontinental Football Cup is the qualifying series for the main tournament in Dubai on 22-24 February. World class teams like Real Madrid and AC Milan will be taking part in the global edition, so this tournament provides an opportunity for our local juvenile teams to stake a claim to rub shoulders with their world-class counterparts.

The objectives of the tournament, among others, are as follows:

I. Supporting children to follow in the footsteps of their footballing heroes

II. Educating players about the practices and principles of sport

III. To raise the level of football in Ghana

IV. To bring to Ghana one of the world’s most competitive and globally encompassing tournaments

In total eight teams will take part in the Ghana event. Seven local teams from round Ghana will be vying for the ticket to Dubai. In addition, Michel Salgado’s Spanish Soccer School from Dubai will take part as a special guest team for a cultural exchange program.
