Two heads they say are better One, and three heads are better than two. On 14 July 2009, three great minds, Mohammed Jiji Alifoe, Kurt Okraku, and Prince Abdul Hamid formed a second division side bearing the name and depicting the attitude of Believers ‘Dreams FC.’
The team that dared to Dream started it voyage playing on the crummy pitch of Botwe community Park and didn’t waste time to make a statement.
In 2014, Dreams FC earned promotion to play in Division One. Just a year playing in Division One, Dreams FC achieved an incredible feat by securing promotion to play in the country’s ultimate league.
But the incredible feat was thrown to the gutters when Tema Youth filed a protest against Dreams FC for using an unqualified player when the two clubs met that season.
Dreams FC lost the case and were demoted back to Division One. Dreams were having a nightmare, but just how the club’s motto reads “Still believe”, Dreams FC never stopped dreaming or believing despite the challenges that befell them.
Dreams FC made an instant return to the Premier league in an unprecedented fashion. They garnered a total of 71 points from 30 games, keeping an impressive record of 22 wins, five draws and three defeats.
Since earning promotion in 2017, Dreams have barely put a foot wrong and they’ve never looked back. They’ve established themselves as a Premier league side.
Dreams FC secured a 9th place finish in their maiden Premier league season and also secured their first top flight trophy after defying all odds to defeat ‘grandparents’ Hearts Oak 2-1 in the final of the G8 competition.
Although Dreams FC have successful completed just one Premier league season since their promotion in 2017, their status as an “established premier league club” can’t be questioned by anyone.
Dreams FC’s fast rise is really a testament that no dream is unachievable.
Today, Ghana football celebrates the club that dreams of putting Ghana football back on the African map.
The club that has helped several players achieve their dream; the likes of Baba Rahman, Leonard Owusu, Montari Kamaheni, Emmanuel Lomortey, John Antwi, Benjamin Tetteh, Emmanuel Sowah Adjei, Samuel Alabi and many others.
