We are pleased to once again be the official sponsor of the 3rd Edition of the Edo State Secondary School Cricket Competition.
Our commitment remains focused on the development of the game of cricket in Nigeria by facilitating and supporting league competition at the junior level.
Over the last two years, we have seen the league grow to accommodate ten schools and harvest a number of talents who were all part of the victorious Edo State Under 15 squad which participated in the National Youth Sports Festival. We are also proud of the achievements of Peter Aho and Akhere Isesele who were products of the first edition and went on to represent the country as part of the National Under 19 squad in the Under 19 World Cup Africa Qualifier which took place in Namibia last month.
As sponsors since the inception of the competition, we are delighted that the Edo State Development Programme has been endorsed and recognised by the International Cricket Council (ICC) as being impactful in nurturing young talents and developing the game of cricket in the country.
This sponsorship is consistent with a key aspect of our Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability Strategy which focuses on youth empowerment through sports and education.
