Nigerians have been promised more grassroots football competitions by VCN Sports following the success of its just-ended U-17 football competition, which featured teams from across Lagos and its environs.

Speaking at the end of the VCN U-17 Cup, MD/CEO of VCN Sports, Victor Nwaribeaku said his dream is to produce more quality players for the country through such youth football programmes.

At the final played at the Legacy Pitch of the National Stadium, Lagos, Dominion Hotspur of Surulere beat Atico Football Academy of Ikosi, Isheri, 2-1 with Skipper Adam Olarenwaju accounting for his side’s two goals.

Among the dignitaries at the final were former Super Eagles stars, Victor Agali, Etim Esin, Friday Elahor, Seyi Fetuga, Ifeanyi Udeze, and Friday Ekpo.

An elated Nwaribeaku said besides the high quality of play, he was inspired by the presence of Esin, Elahor, Fetuga, Agali, Udeze and Ekpo.

“It is hard for me to explain how we at VCN management are feeling. Personally, I thank God for the success recorded and we shall continue to inspire young and talented footballers towards realising their ambition to play for Nigeria and get good football clubs.

“The ex-internationals were invited to motivate the teams and I am happy that they honoured VCN with their strong presence,” said Nwaribeaku, who presented N200, 000 to the winners and N100, 000 to the runner-up.

Ademola Junior Football Academy of Agege outscored Browlfac of Ikorodu 2-1 in the third-place game to win N50, 000.
