The blitz sponsorship drive by the Nigeria National League (NNL) has finally yielded dividends, with the NNL sealing a three year multi-million Naira deal with top ranked Sports betting company, BET9A in Lagos.
An obviously elated Chief Operating Officer (CEO) of the NNL, Honourable Bukola Olopade said the deal which is a major one will definitely help in the rebranding effort of the League board.
“It is a done deal, we are happy about this development. We can now say it is a new League, it will now be known as BET9A Nigeria National League.
“We are indeed excited, this will catapult us to a higher pedestal. It is a good deal, this was a League with a zero percentage of property to hold on to before we came on board.
“We are not resting on our oars. However, in the next couple of weeks we hoping to have Startimes and an oil company come in. We are hoping for more, I can say there is a great future for the Nigeria National League,” said Olapade.
Bukola Olopade who was a former commissioner for Sports in Ogun State also expressed delight at the progress made so far in the 2017 NNL season.
“It is worthy to note that we are extremely doing well with the outcome of the League so far, we have recorded impressively away wins and draws. These are positives to take from the new NNL season,” Olopade concluded.
