The tournament was made possible tournament courtesy of Allan Nevado a Danish national, who assisting these three academies with football materials .

According to Allan Nevado, "I thought it would be a good thing to create an avenue for these academies to come together for a day and know each other. And the best way to do this is to organise an event such as this." He went on to say that the reasons for singling out Brufut as the host is that last year he witnessed the inter Gilkock football tourney which was hosted by Brufut and "I was impressed with their level of organisation."

"This is why I selected Brufut to host this year's tourney and I hope the other academies learn from Brufut as I wish the event to be an annual one."

As host, Buba K Jallow the Technical Director of Gilcock, said "we are working tirelessly to acquire funds to successfully host our guests during the event. This is not the first time we're hosting such an event. From experience the major problem in organising such an event is the money to provide food and refreshments for the participants. Therefore I appeal to companies, institutions and individuals to come to our immediate aid regarding financial assistant," Buba said.

Buba therefore called on individuals, companies and institutions to contact Sang Mendy the public relations officer of Gilkock on 9830861-7893861or 6430633 for any assistance.
