ANB Futbol is proud to recognize the accomplishments of Jordan Araujo for signing a professional player contract with the newly promoted premiership club.
Jordan (1999 born) traveled to Portugal in July, 2017 to participate in the Brighton & Hove Albion U18 preseason training camp. He was then invited to join the club in England, and after performing well in exhibition matches, he accepted a professional offer presented by club representatives.
Jordan has been a member of ANB Futbol since he was 9 years old, playing in various age levels throughout his development, most recently on the U20 team which won the Soccer Academy Alliance Canada (SAAC) league and cup titles in 2016. He participated in various professional youth tournaments in Europe and many American universities offered scholarship opportunities, but Jordan decided to fulfill his life-long dream of becoming a professional futbol athlete. He holds European documentation which allows him to sign as a seventeen-year-old under FIFA rules.
ANB Futbol Academy Director, Bassam Naim, is ecstatic with the signing:
“Jordan has been with ANB Futbol for most of his futbol life and everyone in the organization has seen him grow as a player and a person through patience, hard work, and the full backing of his family and ANB Futbol. I could not be more proud to have been involved in his development and I look forward to seeing him face the next steps in his futbol career.”
“We would also like to thank his agent, Nicco Roffo of the Stellar Group, adidas, SAAC, and most importantly, Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club.”
According to Nicco Roffo, futbol intermediary of the Stellar Group:
“I could not be any happier for Jordan. He is a talented player, a top young man, and he deserves everything that comes his way. All of his hard work has paid off and I expect it to continue to do so. I am pleased for both him and ANB Futbol and I look forward to his future Success!”
