A call has gone out for the investment into professional league clubs.
Strategic partners to the Nigeria Premier Football League (NPFL), GTI Asset Management & Trust Limited, who made the call said it will strengthen the league following the ongoing revolution that elite club football is undergoing in the country.
GTI/TNFF Head of Media and Publicity, Andrew Ekejiuba, who made the call told sport journalists in Lagos that the coming of GTI into the country’s football ecosystem has paved way for elite club football to thrive.
He therefore called on Individuals, Philanthropists and Corporate Nigeria to take advantage of the development.
He further revealed that after the successful hosting of 2022/2023 Nigeria Premier Football League (NPFL) Championship Play-offs and the just concluded Naija Super 8 pre-season tourney, at the Mobolaji Johnson Arena Onikan, Lagos, has clearly demonstrated that the upcoming NPFL season is going to be keenly contested with massive followership for each of the 20 clubs expected to do battle.
“This is a clarion call GTI is making to individuals, philanthropists and Corporate Nigeria to take advantage of the ongoing revolution that elite club football is witnessing in the country and invest in them.
“There is nowhere in the world that government is saddled with the responsibility of elite club ownership because it is capital intensive and pure business. From the English Premiership, German Bundesliga, South African Premier League and Italia Serie A the story remains the same.
“Government at all levels can only involve themselves in elite club football by creating conducive and secured environment for club football to thrive. Nothing more,” Ekejiuba said.
