Super Falcons star, Asisat Oshoala, is set to organize a clinic and championship for young girls under the aegis of her foundation in Lagos State in December 2019.
The event will hold in two phases with the first scheduled to be held from December 4 to 6, and the second phase will hold from December 20-24, at the Campus Mini Stadium. Just like the past four editions of the event, the three-time African Women Footballer of the Year aims to continue mentoring young girls to embrace education in their pursuit of success through sports.

The Asisat Oshoala Foundation has partnered with a Lagos-based Spanish outfit to provide technical support for the clinic, which is part of programs for the second phase.
Oshoala’s Football4girls Africa Project has received huge boost and backing from the Lagos State government, and plans to train five thousand girls on the basic rudiments of football. Three outstanding girls at the event will be picked and awarded scholarships to play and study abroad, inclusive of cash prizes to be won. An All-Star exhibition game at the Campus Mini Stadium will see past and present prominent Nigerian footballers grace the event.
