Western Sydney Wanderers FC are delighted to confirm that forward Mohamed Adam will be an ambassador for the 2020 African Cup NSW.
The Western Sydney product was promoted to the Wanderers first team last July and made a dream start to his senior career after scoring on his club debut in the FFA Cup.
Adam migrated to Australia in 2004 from Sudan and is proud to be working with the community as an ambassador for the 2020 African Cup.
“I feel very privileged to be an ambassador for the 2020 African Cup NSW, playing in the A-League and having a lot of young kids looking up to me gives me that sense of motivation to keep fighting for the South Sudanese, Sudanese and African community in general,” said Adam.
“The African Cup NSW is a wonderful opportunity for young talent to showcase themselves and show what they’re about, taking their game to the next level.
“Words can’t describe how much talent there is in the African community. Without opportunity, there’s not much of a chance that you can show your talent so I feel like with this African Cup being held at our facility (Wanderers Centre of Football) players can take their game to the next level.”
African Cup NSW Committee President Bernard Muchemwa said he was proud to have Adam on board as an ambassador.
“As a member of our community who has found success in the game, we are thrilled to have Mo come on board as an ambassador for the African Cup NSW,” said Muchemwa.
“Mo provides a great example for our community and embodies the opportunities we would like to provide our players through this partnership with the Western Sydney Wanderers. He is not only an excellent player on the pitch but has also supported the community off the pitch.
“We are proud of how he represents us on the national stage and we look forward to welcoming him at this year’s tournament.”
