The first generation of Feyenoord Fetteh Football Academy footballers will be playing for a place in the top division of Ghanaian football during the next few weeks. The first division in Ghana is split into six groups and the Feyenoord Ghana boys had a great season, culminating in a regional title. That puts them in with a shout of promotion. The Academy's success is noteworthy, considering Fetteh works with players aged 15 to 17 years old.

There's still a long way to go before Feyenoord Fetteh Football Academy can secure promotion however. The Academy starts with a match against the number two in the same region and the first and second teams from another region. Fetteh must finish in the top two in the pool to progress to the final six-club pool, from which the top two are directly promoted to the top division and the third-placed club pits its wits against the third-bottom team in the top division in a two-leg playoff. Feyenoord Fetteh Football Academy chief Karel Brokken is confident that his boys can end the season on a high note. 'We do have a great chance to win promotion, provided the referees are not against us and the pitches are good. All the boys are hugely motivated, so I believe we can do it,' says Brokken. It would be a fabulous achievement for Feyenoord Fetteh Football Academy to get into the top division, as such a young team has never played at the highest level in Ghana before.
