Things are done differently at FC Nordsjaelland. a modest Danish club based in the small town of Farum. The club’s ethos is one of integration, development and sustainability, and they are perhaps one of the leading examples of building a team the right way.

The aim, eventually, is to boast a starting XI made up entirely of academy produced players, half of whom will be from Africa. This unique strategy has been in place since 2016, when Tom Vernon, the founder of Ghana-based academy Right to Dream, took over at FC Nordsjaelland.
