In an effort to produce another set of talented football players from Kwara state, a football tournament called the “Never Stop Dreaming Cup 2023” is set to kick off on April 22, 2023, at the Sheik Abdulkadiri College in Ilorin.
The tournament is sponsored by Taiwo Awoniyi, a striker for both the Super Eagles and Nottingham Forest, and is aimed at discovering new talents in the state.
According to Ameen Akota, the chairman of the organising committee, Awoniyi’s academy, Unicorn FA, will play against Sunshine FC at the tournament’s opening match.
