The Nationwide League One (NLO) has sealed a sponsorship deal with FirstCentral Credit Bureau.
The Chairman of the nation’s third-tier league Hon. Silas Agara announced the breakthrough during a press conference held at the NLO Secretariat Board Room in Abuja.
The sponsorship will cover the Nationwide League One- NLO Cup which is billed to kick off in Kano and Uyo on November 24th and the Annual General Meeting (AGM) billed for December 8, to set the pace for the 2024/25 season kickoff.
Hon. Agara, a former Deputy Governor of Nasarawa State told NLO Media Channel, “We are delighted to have the FirstCentral Credit Bureau come on board as one of our sponsors.
“I believe the various reforms that the new board is proposing to the AGM will yield positive gains and make the NLO a more attractive brand to Corporate Nigeria. The reforms are yet to be approved, but due to positive activities from the NLO Secretariat, we have been seeing positive changes.
“You will agree with me that the Nationwide League One with over 300 clubs making it the largest in Africa, is a viable brand for corporate organization in Nigeria, this has brought about our relationship with First Central Credit Bureau.
“Football in Nigeria is massive and an incredible unifier that connects people from all walks of life, as grassroots football is watched daily. It’s on record that 70% of NLO Division One and U-19 Youth League matches were live-streamed via the NLO TV App,” he said.
