There is something extraordinary about the union between FC Nordsjaelland, an unremarkable Danish first division football club to the north-west of Copenhagen, and the Right To Dream academy in Ghana.
It is not just because the club, from the modest 19,000-person town of Farum, is some 5,000 miles away from Right To Dream’s football-oriented residential school on the banks of the River Volta.
What is truly unusual – perhaps unique – is that, rather than being another case of a club co-opting an academy to feed its demand for players, instead it is Right To Dream which has bought Nordsjaelland as a ready-made destination for its graduates.
It is all part of the radical vision of Tom Vernon, a 38-year-old English coach-turned-entrepreneur who founded Right To Dream in his early twenties.
