Milo Football Clinic: Season 2 Ends In Lagos


Nestle Milo recently treated thousands of children of school age in Lagos to an exciting weekend, with ceremonies to draw the curtain on the second season of the Milo Football Clinic held at the Campos Square, Lagos Island.

An elated Martin Woolnough, Managing Director, Nestle Nigeria said his company is happy to be involved in fishing out football talents in Nigeria, having made great success of its involvement in basketball.

Woolnough noted that there was no difficulty buying into the corporate social responsibility initiative because its propositions are in sync with the Milo brand.

The initiative also offers the company a chance to take part in not just fishing out but motivating tomorrow’s champions, a proposition for which Milo is well known.

The event witnessed a large turnout with kids lining up for football lessons, with children from leading secondary schools in Lagos in attendance. The football clinic, now in Season 2, was held only in Lagos last year but has now been extended to three states , made up of Lagos, Enugu and Kwara States.

The sponsors promised that other parts of the country stand chances of benefitting as a result of the warm reception and success the initiative has recorded.

Peter Rufai, former Super Eagles’ goalkeeper, whose Staruf Sports Development organised the clinic, said that he conceived the project as a give-back and appreciation to all Nigerians for supporting his football career, adding that he was grateful to Nestle for making the dream a reality.
