Cantonments Football Club

At Cantonments Football Club we believe in the simple concept of winning football played attractively. Our primary goal is to develop our team and our players; teaching them to play high-quality, attacking football while respecting the laws and spirit of the game. We aim to be successful on and off the pitch by gaining promotion through the Ghana Football Association league championships and fostering a community atmosphere amongst players of all ages. We accept that the future of our most talented players may well lie with bigger clubs in Europe and we are committed to providing them every opportunity to fulfil their aspirations. It is by working together as a team and as a community, with effort and commitment that we will all achieve our goals.

Youth Development

The development of young football players has always been a feature of our club and with our Youth Academy now boasting teams from Under 10 up to Under 17, we are well-placed to continue this process for the foreseeable future. We believe that the best environment for children is to live with their families and attend a local school, training with their friends rather than being sold to the highest bidder. Our Youth Academy provides each player with age-specific coaching and the chance to play competitive Ghana Football Association youth league matches. Furthermore, the children will progress through the different age groups, with the pick of each year's graduating class offered the chance to enter the world of adult football by joining our Senior Team squad. Cantonments Football Club plays and teaches football the right way, with education, enjoyment and social inclusion as the cornerstones of our success. It is because of this that you won't see a single Youth Academy player advertised on this website. These children are not for sale because we believe this is the best place for their development, both as football players and as people.

Cultural Exchange

For a number of years now we have worked with the UK-based NGO Projects Abroad who offer volunteer placements throughout the world. We see this partnership as a way to broaden the minds of our players and staff by introducing them to people of different cultures. Not only do we gain valuable life lessons from the volunteers that work with us, but we in turn get to educate them about our culture and way of life. Volunteers often discover that something as simple as learning to speak some words and phrases in the local languages Twi and Ga can open up a world of possibilities, helping to forge long-lasting friendships. Moreover, our players benefit from having a variety of positive role models, many of whom help them improve their standard of spoken English and inspire them to work hard at school. Cultural exchange is a fundamental part of life at the club and we look forward to working with Projects Abroad volunteers for many years to come.
