The annual Baby Jet U16 African football tournament is slated for June 6, 2023 at the Cape Coast Sports stadium.


The 2023 edition, expected to witness 32 selected U16 teams from the African continent has been finally confirmed by organizers of the event.


The rescheduled football talent discovery platform was slated for the first quarter of 2023 but had to be moved to June after some organizational decisions.

The programme will also provide an opportunity for the young footballers on mentorship and guidance led by Africa’s all time top scorer at the FIFA world cup , Asamoah Gyan.


The championship has produced some notable talents since it’s inception led by UK based Mathew Anim Cudjoe, Emmanuel Yeboah (FC Cluj), Raymond Anokye Asante (Udinese), Emmanuel Mensah (Cluj) amongst others.


All matches from the round of 8 will be televised with multiple agents scouting for young talents.
