Grassroot Sports and Marketing Limited has packaged a football competition to be known as Post COVID-19 Football for Hope.
The competition is expected to kick-off immediately football activities begin in the country.
According to the Tournament Director Godwin Bamigboye, the competition is aimed at giving hope to the society, the youths in particular, who have been mostly affected in view of the fact that they have been kept away from what engages them positively as a means of empowerment and a potent tool that keeps them away from crime, including drug abuse and other vices.
” The competition therefore tends to re-awaken the youths and encourage them to develop their talents towards realizing their potentials. This nationwide competition is also planned to have some economic empowerment values and benefits to be provided by our partners and sponsors”.
“I am optimistic that this national event will go a long way to mitigate the effects and hardships that is imminent as a result of the lockdown caused by the global pandemic”.
Bamigboye who is the Chairman of the FCT Chapter of the Nigeria Football Coaches Association, advised Government, Corporate bodies and individuals to partner with the competition organizers to achieve the desired aims.
