Lagos FA pitches tent at Greensprings Kanu Football Camp
Lagos State Football Association has joined other organisations supporting this year’s Greensprings Kanu Football Camp, which kicks off on Monday, April 4.
The one-week clinic will be handled by Dutch and British coaches, who will be joined by their Nigerian counterparts, to train students from ages five to 17.
Lagos FA, through its chairman, Seyi Akinwunmi, who is also the First Vice President, Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), has agreed to sponsor 12 students to the camp, as well as give technical support to the exercise.
The Lagos FA has been a supporter of the camp since its inception and with this gesture it has re-affirmed its support for grassroots sports development, the organisers of the camp said in a release yesterday.
Aside Lagos FA, Emzor Pharmaceuticals has also thrown its weight behind the clinic by sponsoring 12 students to the camp.
According to the Consultant on Sports to Greensprings School, Oluseyi Oyebode, 12 less privileged students would make it to the camp through the gesture by Emzor.
“We are overwhelmed by the support we have been getting, particularly from the NFF Vice President and Lagos FA boss, Seyi Akinwunmi, as well as Emzor, who have come on board to show their unflinching support to sports development through the gesture.
“Female footballers will be giving more prominence this year due to the presence of the West Bromwich female coach. We are still hoping that more corporate bodies will identify with the camp,” he said.
As it has been doing over the years, the management of Greensprings will sponsor 10 students to the camp as part of their social responsibility.
