Nigeria Gears-Up For Football-Fives Championship

The biggest five-a-side
tournament in the world (F5WC), also known as the Football-Fives World Championship, will begin the Nigerian qualifiers later this year.
I-Sports Coliseum Limited, the exclusive and sole rights owners of the franchise in Nigeria, has announced this year’s edition promises to be the largest in terms of organisation and participation.
“This is the 3rd edition and we are working hard to ensure that everything goes well in terms of registration and organisation,” according to the head of Local Organising Committee and chairman Boma Jacks.
He also went on to say that this year the organisers will give opportunities for states who are interested in obtaining Sub-Licenses from I-Sports Coliseum making them a Sub-Loc.
The organisers of the global event, Sports Event International, came up with this new concept to increase the number of participants and increase sponsor interest and value.
However, this Sub-Licenses would be sold to those who can maintain the image of the brand (F5WC) and organise the state qualifiers in a professionally.
The Sub-License is opened to notable football organisers, football centers, events companies and local leagues.
The organisers also added that the number of regional qualifiers would increase by a large number to give more opportunities to cities across the country.
The winners of the national finals will join 31 other countries and get the chance to represent Nigeria in an all-expenses paid trip to Beijing, China, in May 2017.
The global organisers will also arrange for flights, local transport and boarding for the winners, who will also receive home and away kits of the official kit manufacturers of the world finals.
