Supporters Club plans innovations to lure fans to NPL

19 December 2012, 13:27

Lagos - Rafiu Ladipo, President-General, Nigeria Football and Other Sports Supporters Club said on Wednesday that the body was making efforts to lure fans back to match venues of the Nigeria Premier League (NPL).

Ladipo told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos that the nation's football league had suffered enough neglect over the years due to inadequate facilities.

"We have innovations which we want to introduce to our premier league, to attract fans to our stadia and encourage our players to work for victory.

"But I do not want to let it out now for it not to be stolen, but by the time we do it, you will see that our stadia will be packed full at each match," he said.

The president-general said the club would, however, not discourage Nigerians from watching European league matches, but would also encourage them to be ardent followers of the NPL.

"We will encourage Nigerians to watch Nigerian games just as we will not discourage them from watching European leagues either," he said.

Ladipo added that the club had the mandate to give adequate support to all sports, as well as to promote the ideals of the country.
