The managing director of 5Stars Football & Consultancy, Olumide Aturu, said the 2021 Pan-African Cup which is the first of its kind project, is for the premium rise, growth and profitability of grassroots football from Nigeria to the rest of the world.
He stated further that the Pan-African Cup would showcase the abounding talents and will foster the bond between both Nigeria and Ghana, its players and the football fraternity.
“The 5Stars Pan-African Cup project is a 5 Stars Football and Consultancy Limited initiative aimed at promoting grassroot football beyond boundaries, ensuring national representation and profitability of sports across nations, discovering talents and building stronger relationships with diverse business brands, products and services in Nigeria, thus extending to rest of the world.

This project’s location will be rotated every year around bidding nations, across African nations and the globe at large.
“This first of its kind football competition will automatically attract both local and international brands, players, the huge sport-loving crowd on social media across nations and create premium attention for the development of grassroot football in Nigeria and in extension to other African countries. This project will create new roadmaps for grassroot football rising in Nigeria and Africa, scouting opportunities for talented players to play football locally and abroad,” he stated.
