"The visit is aimed to assess our project and discuss ways in which both clubs could extend support and establish a potential partnership.

"During the visit, the rep from the Dutch club donated AZ Alkmaar jerseys to us, and also engaged with key stakeholders and observed firsthand the progress and potential of the football initiatives in KofCity."
