Medeama agree partnership with American-based International Development Academy

Medeama SC has forged a partnership with an American-based academy, the International Development Academy (IDA).

This collaboration signifies Medeama’s dedication to nurturing young talent and expanding its reach in the world of football.

The International Development Academy is dedicated to developing student-athletes on a global scale, offering them the best competitive environment, exposure, and ample opportunities to thrive.

The American brand has established branches in various countries, including the USA, Spain, the UK, and Italy.

This global presence allows them to reach and develop student-athletes from diverse backgrounds. It’s impressive to see their commitment to providing opportunities for aspiring talents worldwide.

IDA has truly made an impact on the football community by producing promising prospects like Jeremy De Leon, who is currently playing for Real Madrid Castilla, and Arik Duncan, who is showcasing his skills at the University of California Berkeley.

“We are delighted to work with such an ambitious and forward-thinking club,” IDA’s Director Camps and Short-Term Programmes Ben Poulton said.

“Ghanaian football has a rich history and to have the opportunity to work with Medeama to ensure the next generation of players receive further opportunities to succeed is a very exciting thing.”

Medeama President Moses Armah said: “We are excited about the opportunity to work with IDA for the next few years.  I am wishing us all the best of luck and a flourishing partnership that sees our deal extended further.

We are again extremely grateful to IDA for this opportunity and the accomplishment it will bring.

Medeama is expected to benefit immensely from this partnership with the academy side of the Ghanaian giants expected to participate in the Surf Cup International scheduled for Morocco this summer.

Despite being relatively young in the Ghanaian top-flight, Medeama have won the famous FA Cup twice, beating local giants Asante Kotoko twice to win the title.

Based in Tarkwa, a goldmine in Ghana, Medeama have represented the West African country twice in the CAF Confederation Cup with the side impressive heavily in its attempt.

The club also reached the group stage of the 2023-24 CAF Champions League.

The success of the Club is based on the principles of co-operation, trust, humility, discipline, effort and loyalty. We have been one of the most disciplined teams in Ghana and won the Fair Play Award during the 2014/15 Ghana FA/Premier League Board gala.
