Right To Dream

Right To Dream

Right to Dream from Ghana participated for the first time in the Gothia Tipselit Trophy (B17) in 2013. They went all the way to semi-finals but got defeated by the Stockholm?s club Brommapojkarna.

Last year they were much better prepared and came with a wider squad to cope with the tough games during the tournament.

Despite a loss in the group they made it to the playoffs on better goal difference. Once in the playoffs, everything worked out perfectly all the way to the final.

On the other side there was the swedes from Mj?llby who had made it to the finals by winning two penalty shoot-outs.  Even this time Mj?llby managed to get to penalty shootings but the Ghanaians showed better nerves and could take home the trophy.

Right to Dream has now confirmed that they will come back to this summer?s edition of the Gothia Tipselit Trophy (B17) to defend their title.

Right to Dream is a registered charity organisation that mainly recruit boys and girls from unprivileged families. They come to the academy when they are 10-12 years old and then they receive training both in school and on the pitch.

The goal is to get those around 18yrs professional contract with a foreign club or sports scholarship with paid training.
Currently the academy has a total of 75 boys,  9 girls and about 30 students that study and play football at American universities with full scholarships.
