Christiana Saha’s goal to play for Sydney FC and The Matildas is on track thanks to a new Sky Blues club partner in Australian Turf Analysis.
Australian Turf Analysis have kindly covered the scholarship costs for 10-year old Christiana’s Academy Training Program participation with the club.
The Female Academy Training Program (ATP) is helping identify talented players to join the club’s inaugural Female Football Academy upon completion of Sydney FC’s Centre of Excellence, Sky Park which is due to open next year.
Players aged 12-14 form the ATP which will provide the foundation of the club’s first Female Football Academy.
Christiana’s father Rathin has been overwhelmed by the support that his daughter has received.
“Christiana’s dream is to play for Sydney FC and Australia and this will only be possible with economic support in her grassroots development, plus the recommendation from Sydney FC and her continuous training.
“I would like to thank Sydney FC and Australian Turf Analysis for the opportunity they have provided for Christiana.”
CEO of Australian Turf Analysis, John Legge, said he is a firm advocate of the women’s game and is excited to provide support to a young player at Sydney FC’s Academy.
“I’m a big believer in the growth and promotion for the women’s game.
“I reached out to Sydney FC and asked if I could help support their female program in any way and they helped set this all up for Christiana and I.”
ATP sessions take place every Sunday night at Macquarie Park and Kareela. To find out more about Sydney FC’s Academy Training Program, click here.
