Arsenal legend and former English International, Tony Adams has launched the third edition of Airtel’s grassroots soccer initiative, Airtel Rising Stars in Accra, Ghana.

Airtel Rising Stars is a sports talent initiative introduced by Airtel for identifying and nurturing budding under 17 years male and female footballers  from the grassroots onto the national stage. The initiative runs in all Airtel operations across Africa and seeks to bring to light the skills of these young and talented ones by giving them the platform to become world class football stars.

Tony Adams, who played for the Gunners for 22 years and captained them for 14 years was in Ghana to launch ARS as part of Airtel’s partnership with Arsenal which sees the North London club sending in legends in coaches to help bolster the Airtel Rising Stars programme.

He commended Airtel for the ARS initiative adding that “you don’t find too many corporate entities invest in football for young players so it is a great initiative by Airtel and I am proud to be a part of Airtel Rising Stars”, he stated.

“Youth football is the way to go; working with FAs to help unearth talents means that a good stream of players are being found at an early age which is good. Arsenal is happy to be involved with the Airtel Rising Stars programme. Just as we did last year, we will send down some of our trusted youth coaches to take talented players through the Airtel Rising Stars Arsenal Soccer Clinic to be held in Lagos, Nigeria”, he said.
