The Edo state’s governing body for sports on Monday extended a warm welcome to the Football Coaches Association of Africa Nations in advance of the next “F” Diploma Coaching Course set for Benin City, the capital of Edo State.
The Edo State Sports Commission, led by the Chairman, an Iconic Long Jumper and Nigeria National Record holder Yusuf Ali alongside the Permanent Secretary, Sabina Chikere, in a brief meeting, welcomed the FCAAN Coaches and Instructors to the state while promising total support for the coaching course by the state government.
“We are proud that a Coaching body like FCAAN has chosen our city for their Coaching Course. We are also happy to welcome Coaches from all over Nigeria to Benin City. This is coming at a time we are also hosting the Betsy Obaseki Cup and don’t forget the NFF Elective Congress is holding here later this month. It is safe to say that Benin City is now the football capital of Nigeria”, Sabina Chikere quipped.
The one-day FCAAN F Coaching Diploma Course holds on Tuesday, September 13th 2022 at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium, Benin with grassroots Coaches from Edo state and beyond already accredited for participation.
FCAAN, founded by Dr Terry Babatunde Eguaoje, a former Super Eagles technical crew member and present Consultant to the NFF on Coaching matters, is the world’s largest Football Coaches Association with over 45,000 members across the globe. Over the years, FCAAN has offered F, E, D and C courses in Nigeria to update Coaches on global best practices and exposure to current Coaching methodologies.
Several Coaches in the Nigerian league and the national teams are holders of FCAAN Coaching Diplomas.
