Benjamin Ackim is the founder of Sports City London Ltd. After successfully attaining a football scholarship to attend the acclaimed Howard University (Washington D.C. ,USA) he went on to gain a Sports Management Bachelor of Arts degree. His experiences, ambition, and dedication to hard work inspired him to start a sports company in London.
A recognised brand in London, Sports City London now delivers quality sports sessions to schools and youth clubs across the capital. The company is now one of the leading organisations in youth engagement (over 2000 5-24yr olds) using sport to develop careers, jobs and employment opportunities for the so called ‘hard to reach’ young people, right in the heart of the most deprived community where he grew up as a child.
Having coached in various countries such as; Germany, France, and USA, Benjamin has international experience which has opened global avenues to pursue his passion for sport.
Following this, the opportunity for development at Sports City London can be replicated to provide in depth knowledge of sports to young people in other countries. His commitment and passion has drawn sponsorships and funding from companies/organisations such as Coca Cola, Clapham Park Project and StreetGames to support the aims and objectives of the company.
He is also listed as a ‘rising star’ in the Powerlist 2015.
