National Football Academy: Journalists Learn New Techniques
A workshop to train journalists and communication officers in football training centres and football clubs opened in Yaounde on Tuesday September 18, 2018.
Football is universal. In order to meet with the norms of the International Football federation (FIFA), there is an urgent need to train actors in the sector. It is in this light that a workshop to train journalists, media officers, team press officers and communication officers in football training centres and football clubs opened in Yaounde on Tuesday September 18, 2018.
Organised by the National Football Academy (ANAFOOT), the workshop brings together participants from across the country. Speaking at the opening, the General Manager of ANAFOOT, Carl Enow Ngachu said football is a world link and because of that it is the wish of ANAFOOT to ensure that Journalists and communications officers handle properly communication aspects of their respective clubs and teams before, during and after a football match.
He called on the participants to follow the teachings attentively in order to receive all the necessary material for a better visibility of activities of players and the different teams. The workshop which is the first to be organised by ANAFOOT has as objective to professionalise the communication environment around football, sensitise football training centres and define a national strategy.
For three days, participants will be drilled on diverse topics linked to organisational communication and public relations. The workshop is also in line with one of the missions of ANAFOOT which is training in the domain of football.
