Russia 2018: Ambode Is Bringing World Cup Viewing Centre To You
Nigerians are still in good mood after Super Eagles melted Iceland in the second group game of the World Cup holding in Russia.
The Governor of Lagos State is in high spirits and he wants more Nigerians in Lagos State to watch the World Cup.
He has ordered the establishment of a World Cup Viewing Centre at Ikorodu area of Lagos immediately.
The governor gave the directive in his response to the call for additional World Cup Viewing Centres in some parts of the state.
This gesture now gives the Lagosians living in that area of the state an opportunity to watch live football action of the ongoing Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup finals.
There are already six viewing centres provided for football lovers across the state and the Ikorodu venue will be the seventh one.
The centres are located at Teslim Balogun Stadium in Surulere, Campos Mini Stadium Lagos Island, Abesan playground, Alimosho, Naval Yard playground, Ajegunle, Bishop Aggrey Youth Centre Mushin and Epe Recreation Centre.
The group stage of the World Cup is almost over, but the Head of Public Relations, Lagos State Sports Commission (LSSC), Titi Oshodi, said arrangements had been put in place to ensure the speedy provision of the centre.
“The Ikorodu World Cup Viewing Centre will be located at the Ikorodu Town Hall. This viewing centre is to be in place this weekend.
“The Director-General of LSSC, Babatunde Bank-Anthony, has confirmed this new development of creating additional World Cup Viewing Centre in Ikorodu as ordered by the governor.
“The World Cup Viewing Centres are Governor Ambode’s magnanimity to give Lagosians the opportunity of having a feel of football action in the ongoing World Cup.
“The viewing centres will also serve as fun and relaxation spots for the people,” he said.
