Soccer is rightfully called the number one sporting activity in the world. It plays an important role in the lives of many. Soccer is even more significant to people with limited physical abilities in Nigeria.
As an effort to improve the growth of the sport in Nigeria, Betway has donated valuable soccer kits to the Nigerian Amputee Team. The event will be held at the National Stadium in Surulere Lagos.
Betway, the official kit sponsor of English Premier League side West Ham United, has been involved in many social initiatives since its entry into the Nigerian market.
"We are happy to support the Nigerian Amputee Football Team with this donation. We truly appreciate the players and officials for their efforts in inspiring other Nigerians for flying Nigeria's flag with pride. Betway will continue to support the soccer community and other worthy social causes, all for the love of the game,"
said Lere Awokoya, Country Manager for Betway Nigeria
Responding to the kind gesture, the spokesperson for the Nigerian Amputee Football Team praised Betway for the donation, support and commitment to ensuring the needs of the team are met. He also called on other corporate entities to take on social development initiatives such as this, support the team and other less popular sports in the country.
This gesture by Betway will go a long way in improving the morale of the amputee soccer players who are hoping to represent Nigeria at this year's edition of the Amputee World Cup, taking place in Mexico.
Items donated by Betway include first aid kit, nets, crutches, soccer balls, bibs, training jerseys, soccer boots and sports bags
