11 April 2014, 07:40

Abuja - Globacom, one of the leading telecommunication firms and sponsor of the senior men's football team, announced plans to unveil a blueprint aimed at garnering support for the side  as they prepare for the World Cup in Brazil.

This was disclosed by the company Chief Operating Officer, Mohammed Jameel, when he led a delegation from the from the company on a visit to the Minister of Sports and Chairman of the National Sports Commission (NSC), Tammy Danagogo, in his office at the Abuja National Stadium

Jameel stated that Globacom has made football sponsorship its second business in Nigeria and would continue to be at the forefront in football sponsorship.

He pointed out that as an integral part of the National Sports Commission (NSC), Globacom was aware that football was integral to local youth and thus decided to go into football sponsorship in 2003.

He pledged the Company’s continued loyalty to the goals and aspirations of the NSC.

The Sports Minister called on all Nigerians, multi-national organisations and private companies to collaborate with the government in the development of sports through sports sponsorships.

He commended the steps of Globacom in the sponsorship of football in the country and noted that it had regularly contributed to enriching the social development spectrum of the Nigerian citizenry as sports is a veritable tool for engaging more people from different social and demographic strata.

The Minister also canvassed for support from other private organisations, noting that the current trend worldwide is for private organisations to collaborate with the government to develop sports.

According to him, sports offered a ready-made and flexible platform that can be adapted to a wide variety of objectives by companies seeking to develop successful Corporate Social Responsibility.

He urged the Multi-national Company to speed up its efforts at taking sports to the next level and pledged that the NSC would evolve strategies to promote a greater collaboration with the company.
