Surestream Academy re-opens September


The country’s major football academy, Surestream, re-opens its doors in the first week of September after a prolonged break that lasted over two months.

The academy had suspended its activities after its former technical director, Peter Mponda, resigned and took with him the main team which he re-registered as Fisd Wizards.

However, the academy’s publicist, Linda Gombera- Chiume, on Tuesday said the academy was now ready to continue its goals of developing grassroots’ talent.


“We are still in the restructuring process. We are trying to put things in place because so many things happened and some were not properly done. When the schools are opening Surestream will be opening its doors as well,” she said.

“Most of the academy’s players are under- 18, therefore we want their parents to sign consent forms so that they should be aware of every update at the academy. This will also help in safeguarding the future of the players because their parents or guardians will help them in decision making.”

The academy’s operations manager, Patrick Kulemeka, said they had established a high performance talent development plan.


“This involves both the football and academic components. We want the players to excel both in football and their education, therefore we will closely monitor their progress on both fronts,” he said.

Kulemeka said they went on a scouting mission and got 12 players from the Inter- City Under-14 tournament and another 12 players from the Massa Under-15 Copa Coca-Cola League.

“We will also get other players from the Under-17 Airtel Rising Stars finals,” Kulemeka said about the Surestream Petroleum Limited-bankrolled academy.
