Sponsors preach fairplay, discipline as schools prepare for zonal prelims


Sponsors of the ongoing Delta State Principals’ Cup, Zenith Bank has charged all the remaining 26 teams in the competition to embrace fair play and discipline.

The frontline bank in partnership with the government of Delta State under Governor Ifeanyi Okowa revived the competition in 2017 to boost grassroots football development in the state.

The third edition of the tournament organized for secondary schools in Delta State will enter intensive stage from January 21 with the zonal elimination series.


Group Managing Director of Zenith Bank, Peter Amangbo during the week advised all the participants in the competition to be fair on and off the pitch.

Amangbo said: “All the players of different schools should be friendly with one another because we expect they will meet in future. It is also important for them to demonstrate discipline, which is an integral aspect of the game.

“Officials and all organisers should be fair to the young ones so that a true champion will emerge in the end. The issue of fair play cuts across all those involved in the tournament. We are very proud of this competition and expect the best as the tournament enters crucial stages.”
