Green said while things had been gradually taking shape, full academic activities would only begin after the project must have been handed over to the state government.

“We will talk more by the end of this month when the building will be handed over to us by the contractors. But right now people can only see our activities on our website,’’ Green, who is a former Executive Committee member of Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), said.Real Madrid Academy Construction to be Handed Over to Rivers Govt

Gov. Wike had given the contractors an August 2020 deadline to complete the projects.

This was to enable the government get the Academy ready for full academic activities by the end of this month, since its unveiling on Sept. 21, 2019.

The COVID-19 pandemic has however affected the August delivery date.

The Academy is expected to admit in first stage 150 students whose ages range 6 to 17 years at the beginning of the academic session.

The Academy is located at the Yakubu Gowon Stadium in Elekahia, Port Harcourt.
