Africa Interactive works together with local media talent in Ghana to bring the Nike5showdown tournament in the picture.
For one month Ghana is the center of African football. Between January 21st and February 8th, teens from schools, football clubs and NGO’S from in and around Accra will show their best football skills at the Nike5showdown tournament.
It is a 5 aside game where speed and accuracy are necessary to survive and win. Close to 3000 teens will be part of the tournament. The famous Ghanaian football star and Chelsea midfielder Michael Essien is the ambassador of the Nike5showdown.
During the pre-rounds the progress of the competition, the team stories and dreams, will be captured in both stills and moving images. This work is being done by local Africa Interactive reporters and can be seen on www.nike5showdown.com.
