Galaxy Sports Development China established a tripartite collaboration between JM Liberty Academy, Galaxy Sports Academy, and its Chinese partners. The parties through this tripartite agreement consented to invest in the player in other to reap the benefits therein



The Memorandum Of Agreement was signed by Mr. Austin Akpehe and Mr. Jerry Avungu to initiate a unique mode of operation which aims at not only developing and exposing young Benue State football players abroad but Nigerian football players at large.
