Staruf Football Academy

There are loads of football academies in Nigeria no doubt but only a few of them have what it takes to groom future stars for the country.

Nigerians are passionate about football and many parents want their children to develop their careers in football, but what seems to be lacking is a well-organised football academy.

This is where former Super Eagles Goalkeeper Peter Rufai comes in with his Staruf Football Academy.

Staruf Football Club Limited was incorporated in Lagos, Nigeria with Registration Number 1064534. It was registered on 12 Sep 2012. The company’s registered office address is NO.18 Ayindegiwamasha, Surulere, Lagos.

Peter Rufai Football Academy provides an avenue where talented young lads can train and learn the rudiment of the game at a tender age.

Although football academies are founded in Lagos State almost every day, only a few of them can stand the test of time.

Most of the academies lack basic sports facilities and a good football pitch where the players can train and display their talents.

But Staruf Football Academy is with a difference based on the testimonies of many young players who have registered with the academy.

Because the academy grooms aspiring youths to become world stars, many young players have left their former clubs to register with Staruf Football academy.

The academy players have learnt a lot from the institution. They are very comfortable as the academy has a big bus that conveys the students to match venues.

They have lots of jerseys for training sessions and lack almost nothing because the management is up and doing.

Over 200 players have registered with the academy. And it is believed that young lads who want to make a career in football will get it from this academy with the wealth of experience in Rufai when you consider his playing days. And the players so far are learning fast on the game.

They take part in competitions like Oba’s Cup, Boska Cup and other high profile competitions that can bring the players to the limelight.

Parents and guardians of current players at the academy believe in the youth programme. The management itself has vowed to continue to give the players the best throughout their stay in the school.

They have even gone as far as playing a friendly match with Golden Eaglets and Flying Eagles for exposure sake so that by the time they start their professional career, it will be easy for them.

The Lagos State Government is also known for its support of this academy.

Peter Rufai Football Academy has also been established in Belgium and Spain, and some other parts of African countries.

There is the opportunity for good players to be sponsored to Europe for trials and to participate in the international championship in Europe as the players equally need international exposure in order to compete with their counterparts in the world.

Coach of Staruf Football Academy, Saheed Adeyinka, once attested to the fact that there is a lot of improvement in the academy.
