Amazing 2018 Edition. 

With 212 participants, the 2018 edition kick-started with an opening ceremony where Super Eagles legend Kanu Nwankwo enjoined the boys and girls to put in their best efforts during the training. Abbey Fawaz was the recipient of the 2018 full sports scholarship to study at Greensprings school.

How GKFC is Changing Lives

When you do these drills, you will see how well you'll play. The coaches want you to improve, they want you to be successful.

It has really improved my goalkeeping skills. I have learnt how to dive and sprint faster.

The coaches have been excellent with their drills and this has helped improve my balance.

As a young boy i have always dreamt of being a great footballer. When the opportunity to attend GKFC came i was excited. The camp has helped improve my skills and confidence. I am a member of the Under 15 team of Nigeria, an achievement i never thought would be possible in such a short time.
