For many years, the bane of sports development in Nigeria has remained its lack of sponsorship from both individuals and corporate organisations, but that seem to be phasing out as AlatbyWema has signed a Kit sponsorship deal with Alimosho Football Club.
AlatbyWema remains Nigeria’s first and truly digital banking platform that makes banking in Nigeria as seamless as possible, a product of Wema bank Plc. Alatbywema is a brand well attached with the socialiga, an amatuer football league that combines both social and football entertainment. With football being its flagship program, the socialiga has continued to thrive in the Lagos football circle and have been described presently as the most organized and safest sports event in Nigeria.
The kit sponsorship deal which runs through the 2019 Socialiga Season will have the official logo of AlatbyWema crested on the team’s shorts for both male and female teams of Alimosho FC. According to Mr Teslim Sanni the deal simply shows the commitment of AlatbyWema’s in sports development and thrust in touching lives even at the grassroots through football sponsorship.
Mr. Teslim, the media director of Alimosho FC expressed his joy on their association with AlatbyWema and indeed the socialiga. In his words “It has been a platform for us to showcase Alimosho not just as the most populous local government in Lagos but also an area that supports social impact programmes through football” .With a brand like AlatbyWema supporting AFC, it only tells a beautiful story of how other communities can leverage on sports for their development and propagating good public image.
