Opening of Paris Saint-Germain Academy Senegal
Strive Football Group further expanded its global network with the introduction of Paris Saint-Germain Academy Senegal. The training center is located in Saly, Senegal, just outside of the popular beach town, Dakar.
The Academy’s football instruction will be centered around the Paris Saint-Germain methodology which brings the professional training environment offered in France to the new location in Africa. Players will train in one of the best sports facilities on the continent, where they will receive individualized instruction on how to develop their technique and overall skill.
Ravy Truchot, President of Strive Football Group, said:
A lot of Senegalese dignitaries are backing the project and have gotten involved. The support we’ve had from the Sports Minister, Matar Ba, and the head of the national football association, Augustin Senghor, has been invaluable. I would also like to offer my thanks to Vivianne and Herve Renard. In opening the doors of their sports complex to us, they have enabled us to offer our players an ideal playing environment.
Over 900 players attended the first tryout sessions on May 29-30, 2021, proving the success of the PSG brand in Senegal.
Through the connections of the Strive Football Group network, players at Paris Saint-Germain Academy Senegal will be introduced to elite development and exposure opportunities to advance their playing career.
