The Right to Dream Academy (RTD) is one of the best football academies in Africa which has unearthed talents for the past two decades and now operating in three countries namely Ghana, Egypt and Denmark. The academy founded by former Manchester United scout Tom Vernon, started in 1999 training a small number of boys in Accra and grew into a residential school and training center.

Since then, a new $2.5million purpose-built facility was launched in 2010, a fully residential international school which has continued to grow its offering of scholarships to talented children drawn from all over Africa.

Right To Dream players and student-athletes receive the best possible development experiences to give them the best chance of reaching their maximum potential via the academy model through education, football and most importantly in developing their character to the fullest.
Since the foundation of the academy was laid in 1999, 144 students have graduated from Right to Dream. 61 of the graduates play, or have played professional football, and 43 have represented their country’s national team (14 at senior level, 29 at youth level). 
Seventy-six (76) of these inspirational young people accessed university scholarships in the USA or in the UK as student-athletes.
The Right to Dream Academy was ranked the 15th best youth academy in the world by US based media outlet Bleacher Report in 2013.
In December 2015, Vernon bought FC Nordsjaelland with the help of investors and many Right to Dream graduates have gone on to play for the Danish Superliga side, as well as joining other European clubs and pursuing college careers in the United States.
In January 2021, Man Capital, the UK-based investment arm of the Egyptian Mansour Group, announced a €100 million ($118m) partnership with Right To Dream. The newly-established Man Sports now has majority control of the organization, with Tom Vernon remaining the other significant shareholder.
Mr Mohamed Mansour, the founder and chairman of Man Capital, became chairman of the board of Right To Dream, while his son, Loutfy Mansour, also joined the board.
The partnership's first major project is to build a Right To Dream academy for boys and girls in Egypt. To be located in West Cairo, it is expected to welcome the first group of student athletes in 2022. A professional women's team will also be launched in Egypt.
