The event slated for October 24 at the Omoba Learning Field, Omoba Layout, Onitsha, is aimed at launching a well-structured, aptly focused, and goal oriented grassroots football movement in Anambra State.


According to the Chief Executive Officer of Bunubunu Cultural and Sporting Limited, Izuchukwu Udegbunam, organisers of the event, who also doubles as the chairman of Anambra State Football Supporters Club, the project with the theme ‘Echezonankeanyi’ has received the blessings of Nigeria Football Supporters Club, National Youth Council of Nigeria Anambra State Chapter, and some local and international football supporting organisations.

The database will be used to conduct affairs pertaining to the promotion of local talents in football, fans’ welfare, businesses, social security, and sporting structures.

He further explained that as a pioneer football supporters and fans congress in Anambra State, the importance of the project needs to be harnessed, as it promises to provide a viable platform for launching comprehensive, harmonised, purpose-driven, business-oriented, and profitable football fans activities in the State.

“It is pertinent also to mention that the success of the project will provide the most reliable and robust research platform on the best method to replicate the effects of high rewards of the razzmatazz of international football leagues to the advantage of our local football industry,” he stated.
