Gernot Rohr, German Football Ambassador 2016, supports the FOGEBU Football Academy in Burkina Faso.
Gernot Rohr was the national coach of Burkina Faso and with his prize money our 2016 awardee supports the FOGEBU football academy. A few weeks after the event, thanks to the support of Richard Tiené and the German Embassy, he was able to hand over the donations to the President of the FOGEBU Academy, Mr. Kouate.
Various clubs and academies around Ouagadougou took part in the tournament and the team of the FOGEBU academy emerged victorious in the final with a 1-0 win. We are very pleased with the commitment of Gernot Rohr and hope to continue the support of further projects together with the German Embassy in Burkina Faso.
