Football in Nigeria is set to reap more benefits with the “LaLiga in Naija” initiative

At a recent event in Lagos, the LaLiga Nigerian office highlighted the various projects it has undertaken since its inception in the country.

LaLiga Delegate in Nigeria, Javier Del Rio, who spoke during the event, said; “We (LaLiga) are very proud to be in Nigeria, and to be much closer to the fans. We believe Nigeria is a significant market for the growth of our brand, and we are highly committed to the development of football in this country, paying close attention to its grassroots football as demonstrated through the 5-day LaLiga-NPFL Coaching Clinic for Nigerian youth coaches earlier this year at the National Stadium in Abuja. We plan to host more of these types of activations, and this is just the beginning of greater things to come between LaLiga and Nigeria.”

Present at the event were former Nigerian LaLiga stars Finidi George, and Emmanuel Amunike.

The Nigerian players from Las Palmas, Malaga, Deportivo La Coruna, Nastic Tarragona, and Lugo were also present to represent their respective clubs.

Also speaking during the event, was LaLiga ambassador, and former LaLiga star, Mutiu Adepoju, who said, “As the LaLiga ambassador, growing the LaLiga brand in Nigeria has always been my primary objective. I am excited about the prospect of Nigerian fans being closer to LaLiga and its clubs, as there is an array of Nigerian talent plying their trade in the Spanish top flight. I believe that LaLiga’s presence in Nigeria will ultimately further strengthen ties between Nigeria and LaLiga”.
