It was a great moment in the promotion and relegation playoffs in Nationwide League One with Sterling Bank powering the competition across four centres in the country.
Speaking on the support from the bank, the Chief Operating Officer of the NLO, Shola Ogunnowo, appreciated the bank for backing the promotion/relegation playoffs and he is very optimistic that the teams participating will display sublime football that is associated with the cradle of football in Nigeria. “NLO appreciates the efforts of Sterling Bank in supporting the promotion and relegation showpiece and it is expected that the teams will give a good account of themselves on the pitch of play,” Ogunnowo said.
“We have Ilorin Stadium, Rojenny Stadium, Anambra, Aper Aku Stadium, Makurdi and Jos Township Stadium as the four centres where the teams aiming for promotion and those struggling to avoid the drop will play.
“The league secretariat will ensure that these games are well organised and devoid of anything that will bring the games to disrepute. We know that promotion and relegation playoffs can be highly tensed and we are equal to the task of organising quality football at the grassroot league in Nigeria.” Yemi Odubiyi, Executive Director, Corporate and Investment Banking, Sterling Bank Plc, said the bank is pleased to partner with NLO in line with its commitment to growing the critical sectors of the Nigerian economy.
He added: “Nigerians are passionate about football and we are delighted to connect them to their passion point through promotion/ relegation playoffs in the cities of Onitsha, Illorin, Makurdi and Jos.
“We are happy that actions will return to the Nationwide League One with the promotion and relegation playoffs.” In Ilorin stadium, 36 Lions FC of Lagos will slug it out for promotion against Destiny Boy FC, while the other promotion game is between Olisa FC and Green Beret FC. MFM Feeders will be battling relegation when they file out against Valiant FC. The same scenario applies to Magate FC and PSI International FC.
