THE HISTORY OF THE CLUB
A DREAM POSSIBLE
TURENI was a football sports association in Abidjan (Ivory Coast) for over 20 years, which produced players currently playing in international teams.
We bought the association in 2018 and turned it into a football club recognised by the Ivorian federation, the ministry of sports and FIFA.
We chose to allow very young and inexperienced players to hone their natural talent with a great team of professionals and technical staff. At Inter. Camdine, there is no status or social class, but pure football quality.
No registration fees, to allow players whose parents cannot afford to pay. We take care of everything.
In this short period of time we have achieved extraordinary results. We won the vast majority of our matches and reached the final of the tournament in Côte d’Ivoire. Now we are well known in Abidjan and we play with first division teams.
CAMDINE is a football team from Ivory Coast created in 2018 by former professional footballer, Mahamadou Nourdine Camama and several investors from the Basque Country.
THE STORY OF MAHAMADOU NOURDINE CAMAMA
I arrived in Barcelona (Spain) in 2003 and, after a few difficult years, I returned to my country, Côte d’Ivoire, on holiday. There I realised that the situation was still precarious and I decided to help these talented and enthusiastic children who reminded me so much of my childhood.
With the aim of supporting football talent, CAMDINE now has players from the best international leagues.
I was more than 10 years in professional football and I have relationships with many international players. My aim is to identify the best players, at an early age, to train them so they can play in any first division team.
I don’t care about the social class of the players, I focus on pure talent.
We are creating a youth academy with our own physical, technical and nutritional trainer so that the players are prepared to play in the first division at national and international level.
This is our goal: to produce great footballers, great people who have a positive impact on the world.
THE VALUES THAT DRIVE US
A problem: many of the selected players come from poor neighbourhoods and are unable to eat even once a day. They suffer from malnutrition and have no access to education.
A solution: Our goal is that every player of the Camdine Football Club has access to good food, education and a home in which to develop.
For this, we count on our next project; we will have our own Inte. Camdine F.C., where our players will have a home where they can receive education, a balanced diet and sports nutrition programmes.
The revenues of the International Camdine Football Club will be reinvested in the team itself, with the aim of creating an economic return system that will make us self-sufficient for years to come.
In this way we will be able to give many children the opportunity to change their lives and become good football players in the future.
