Baale of Allen Avenue Communuity, Bolaji Thomas Jaji has explained the reason he wants to sponsor a grassroots football tourney, Baale Cup.
Jaji told P.M.Sportsthat sponsoring the tourney is borne out of passion he has for youths. Apart from this, Jaji said he has been nursing the ambition of sponsoring the football tournament in the last few years so as to empower youths within Allen Avenue Community and its environs.
“My aim of promoting football tournament has been in my mind for years. I discovered that our youth are roaming about the street because of the unemployment rate in the country, so sponsoring this football tournament will help keep them busy and also make them shun crminal activities that can truncate their career” he said.
Match Co-ordinator, Taiwo Nasiru said the competition will hold on 30 June at Sky Power playground, Ikeja.
