Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) 1st Vice President, Barrister Seyi Akinwunmi, says the Nationwide League One (NLO) TV App will help to give grassroot football in the country a new meaning.
This follows the decision of NLO Management to launch its television and video viewing application to air the 2021/22 league matches of the nation’s third-tier domestic season.
The innovation would start with the Optima Energy NLO Super 8 match-day fixtures which will hold in Ikenne, Ogun state.
According to the Lagos State Football Association chairman, “The NLO is the birthplace for grassroot football, where all actions should emanate from. Therefore, the earlier we understand this fact, the better it would be for football stakeholders in the country”.
“The app will change the face of NLO games in totality since everyone would be able to watch matches and also monitor the display of players. That will give the entire world the opportunity to see Nigeria’s brand of soccer”.
“The fact is that a lot of us underestimate our potentials as Nigerians. However, there will be no hiding place for national team coaches to say they don’t know a good player anymore since they will have the chance to see such players and assess them”.
“Am very happy with what the NLO Chairman, Mohammed Alkali, has done. I call on everyone to emulate his virtues”.
While stating that the world is now a technology driven arena in every facets of human endeavour, Akinwunmi added, “Technology is the way forward and will surely bring the needed change that will turn things around for the better. In a few years from now, it will be a success story to tell”, concludes Akinwunmi.
