Buruj Sports Academy players and officials have confirmed their participation in the 2016 Welsh International Super Cup after the British Consular issued travel visas to all the 15 players and five officials on Thursday.
The Managing Director of the academy, Salaudeen Waheed, was full of gratitude to God for crowing the efforts of the players and officials with success and of course the extremely polite officials of the British High Commission for their show of faith and support which eventually culminated in the issuing of the visas.
He also promised that his management will do everything possible to ensure that all the members of the contingent conduct themselves in a manner that will portray them as good ambassadors of Nigeria when they arrive in the United Kingdom.
The 2016 Welsh International Super Cup will kick off on August 4 at the sports complex of Cardiff City University and Buruj contingent are billed to jet out of Nigeria on August 1. They will lodge at Ibis Cardiff City Centre Hotel all through their stay.
Meanwhile, Dr. Waheed has opined that more of such trips are on the way and his management will not rest on its oars in ensuring that more talented youngsters are exposed to world class tournaments in different parts of the globe.
