Premier League Star Zaha Announces His Own Football Academy (Check It Out)

Crystal Palace star Wilfried Zaha has announced the launch of his football academy in England on Monday.
The ‘Wilfried Zaha Academy’ will start operations in South London this summer with only kids between the ages of 5 to 12 allowed to enrol for the football camp.

Zaha’s gesture is believed to be one of the ways he is giving back to Croydon – a community in South London where he grew up after he left Abidjan with his family at a tender age.

The academy’s operations have started on Monday with the summer football camp that will go on for about five weeks until August 27.

The football camp has daily morning and evening sessions with development and one-on-one sessions.

“Today is the day guys! Wilfried Zaha Academy begins today and I’m so excited I decided I’m going to give away two signed shirts,” Zaha wrote on his Instagram.

Zaha has spent the majority of his career in South London, after rising through the youth ranks at Crystal Palace between 2004 and 2010
