    New Era College Signs Historic Partnership with Africa Must Arise Initiative to Host Soccer Scouting Event

    22 May, 2023

    New Era College is excited to announce its partnership with Africa Must Arise Initiative to host a soccer scouting event on the 22nd and 23rd of April. This event will provide opportunities for young soccer players between the ages of 7 and 23 to showcase their skills and potentially go on to soccer trials for teams from the Spanish football league.

    The signing ceremony, which took place at New Era College's campus this past Tuesday, was attended by representatives from both organizations. Speaking at the ceremony various speakers from New Era College expressed their excitement about the partnership and the opportunities it will bring to the college and young soccer players.

    Our Director of Marketing and Communications Mr Anderson Nlisana remarked, "New Era College has always been committed to providing quality education and nurturing the talents of our students. We are thrilled to partner with Africa Must Arise Initiative to offer this unique opportunity to young soccer players. Developing the next generation of soccer stars is not only important for the players themselves, but also for the communities they come from and the world of soccer as a whole."

    This partnership aligns with New Era College's commitment to promoting sports and physical activity among its students. Through sports, students can develop important life skills such as teamwork, leadership, and perseverance. By hosting this soccer scouting event, New Era College is not only promoting soccer as a sport, but also promoting the values and skills that come with participating in sports.

    The College continues to show its commitment to sports development through their Ghodrati Foundation Sports Scholarship which was launched with the aim of giving promising athletes the opportunity to earn an academic qualification while still developing their sports talents.

    The scholarship has unearthed the likes of Thuto Masasa, Naledi Lopang and Tsholtlego Friecky who will all be representing Botswana at the upcoming Grand Prix as well as the World university games in China later this year.
