This is Next Gen Excellence: A Season of Historic Wins & Bright Futures



The 2023/24 season has been one for the history books at Right to Dream.


From academy breakthroughs to professional club dominance to individual accolades, our global community has displayed exceptional talent and a relentless pursuit of excellence that defines Right to Dream.


Women's Football Takes the Lead

The spotlight shone brightest on our women’s teams this year.


In Denmark, FC Nordsjælland Women made history by securing the club's first-ever domestic double, claiming both the league and cup titles.


But it’s not just about the trophies; it's about how we won them.


This achievement was partly driven by our outstanding academy graduates, who made up 50% of this winning squad, including Emilia Asgeirsdottir (19) and Alma Aagaard (18), who scored the decisive goals in the cup final.  






The wins not only showcase the effectiveness of our youth development model and solidify FC Nordsjælland Women as a dominant force in Danish football but also secure their place in next season’s UEFA Women's Champions League, paving the way for these rising stars to compete on the biggest stages.


Meanwhile, our professional team in Egypt, TUT FC Women, mirrored this success, securing their own domestic double.


Despite entering the topflight just two years ago, the young TUT FC squad – with an average age of 22.7 - have already secured three trophies, having lifted the 2022/23 Egypt Cup title last season.

 

TUT FC are also poised to get their first taste of continental football, having sealed their place in the CAF Women's Champions League UNAF Qualifiers - the North African qualification tournament for the CAF Women's Champions League.



Nurturing Young Talent, Building Brighter Future

Our community continued to yield incredible results, not just on the professional level but across our entire youth academy system.


FCN Girls' Academy swept titles across multiple age groups, with the U13 team lifting the cup title, the U14 and U16 being named double champions, and the U19 claiming the league title, showcasing the depth of talent we're fostering.


With the best girls' academy in Denmark, a new girls’ academy in Egypt, a thriving one in Ghana since 2013, and another set to start in the US, we’re building a global network of empowered female talent, and we’re confident the future is bright for girls and women in football.





Men's Football: Rising Stars & New Chapter

On the men's side, FC Nordsjælland men's fourth-place finish in the Danish Superliga may not have been the ultimate goal, but the season highlighted the emergence of exceptional young talent.


Academy graduate Andreas Schjelderup was named Young Player of the Year, with fellow academy graduate Ibrahim Osman following closely in the vote. Schjelderup was also named the Danish Superliga's Spring Profile 2024. These recognitions highlight the incredible young talent emerging from our ranks.


And with an average team age of 24, the future looks bright for FC Nordsjælland Men.


TUT FC men's team also made significant strides, earning promotion to Egypt’s Second Division (B) after finishing top of their group in the Third Division with an impressive record of 16 wins out of 18 games and scoring 50 goals in 18 games.






The Right to Dream Way

This season’s successes speak volumes about our commitment to nurturing talent from the ground up and empowering women in football on a global scale by providing them with the resources and opportunities they need to thrive.


As our Chairman, Sir Mohamed Mansour stated: "The successes and progress achieved this season across our network of academies and professional clubs in Ghana, Denmark, and Egypt stand as a testament to the collective efforts of the entire Right to Dream community.


“We are particularly proud of the strides we've made in women's football. The domestic doubles secured by FC Nordsjaelland Women in Denmark and TUT FC Women in Egypt demonstrate the profound impact of investing in young female talent and providing the resources and opportunities necessary for them to thrive.”


As we continue to expand our reach and impact, empowering young talent and fostering a global community of football excellence, we are excited about the opportunities and achievements that lie ahead.



“With the addition of San Diego FC next season to our global community, we’re poised to expand our reach and impact further, creating even more opportunities for the next generation of talent to pursue their dreams on the world stage,” Right to Dream Chairman, Sir Mohamed Mansour, said.


This is Next Gen Excellence. This is the future of football, and we’re proud to be part of it at Right to Dream.
