Supersport’s Takes Let’s Play To Fugar, Edo State

Children in the serene city of Fugar, the capital of Etsako Local Council of Edo State, could not hold their excitement when Satellite sports broadcasting channel, Supersport, brought Lets Play, its grassroots sports development programme to the city.

The event preceded the annual Okpekpe 10km Road Race, which brought runners from across the world to the surrounding communities.

Hosted by Emma Momoh, who is the Chairman of Etsako Central LGA, the programme featured over 2,000 children, aged between six and 13years, from various primary schools in the area.

The kids were given the very basic football skills training by a team of 30 coaches from the Edo State Sports Council, led by the Technical Director of the NFF, Amodu Shuaibu. Also present to support the coaches was Victor Ikpeba, Let’s Play Ambassador.

Speaking at the event, Momoh said, “the kids have just been given a once in a lifetime experience. Let’s Play is what they have been hearing about and today have experienced.”

Supersport General Manager, Felix Awogu, expressed his belief that “Let’s Play has begun to carve a niche as it enters its 10th year of existence. Launched in Nigeria in 2011, Let’s Play has impacted the lives of over 20,000 children across the country through sports.”
