CNN Inside Africa: Chigoli

This is absolutely fantastic for Malawi, and for football!

I met George, the founder of Chigoli Football Academy, while living in Lilongwe and playing together for the BOBS. He is clearly a visionary, a true believer in the massive potential of Malawi’s kids, and a very good player himself.

It is incredible how far he has developed Chigoli.

This week, the CNN Inside Africa program featuring George and Chigoli was aired, and here are all the links to watch it.

Please share, share, share!

How can you not be a fan of future stars like Deliness, Ravanelli (what a great name, and great player for Middlesbrough FC!), and Tabitha!

The images bring back so many good memories of playing on beaches, dusty pitches, in villages, through to the biggest crowds and stadiums I’ve ever played in! The joy and enthusiasm for the game, through adversity, especially from children, is truly a beautiful thing.

Keep up the good work, George!
