Manchester City partner with QNET

May 29, 2023

English professional football club Manchester City have teamed up with international lifestyle and wellness-focused direct selling firm QNET to provide young Africans with a platform to showcase their talent.

The “ManCity Football Clinic” programme has selected 26 young players from disadvantaged communities, getting them access to the best trainers and coaches, including former Nigerian footballer Johannes Bonfrère. These 26 players, all of whom are under 18, have been selected from six states in Nigeria. QNET hopes to hold a similar programme in Ghana in the near future. 

Trevor Kuna, Chief Transformation and Reputation Officer at QNET, commented:

At QNET, we believe that sports are more than just a game – they teach important values like teamwork, discipline, and perseverance. These are values that are at the core of our brand. That’s why we’re proud to have collaborated with Manchester City to bring this unique opportunity to the youth in Africa, regardless of their background. Our aim was to empower them to achieve their dreams and help them develop into confident, well-rounded individuals.

Johannes Bonfrère, former Nigeria international, said:

As a coach with a deep passion for nurturing young talent, I believe that this football clinic is a major step that holds tremendous potential for the future of football in West Africa. It provides a platform where aspiring footballers can receive extensive coaching, refine their skills, and develop a deeper understanding of the game. I am confident that this initiative will play a crucial role in shaping the next generation of football stars.

QNET has previously worked with Man City to arrange similar programs in Indonesia, Turkey, Malaysia, Thailand, Kazakhstan and several African countries, with the last programme having been conducted before the COVID-19 pandemic. 

QNET has served as a direct selling partner of Manchester City Football Club since 2014.
