The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) on Friday signed partnership agreements with two companies, Tropical General Investments (TGI) Group and Pay Porte, for the sponsorship of the Super Eagles.

The partnership which will last for three years will make TGI Group’s products the official food of the Super Eagles.

The agreement with the PayPorte on the other hand will make the company the official online shop for sales of Eagles’ jerseys for the next three years.

Signing the agreement on Friday in Uyo at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, the Executive Director of TGI Group, Onyekachi Onubogu, noted that football is a unifying factor in Nigeria.

Onubogu, who represented the TGI Group Managing Director, Rahul Savara, said: “We are enormously ecstatic to come on board as supporters of the Nigerian national football teams.

“This new partnership we are starting with the NFF will allow us to expand our footprints to the development of football in the country.” Onubogu said.

The Chief Executive Officer of PayPorte, Eyo Bassey, said his company decided to partner with NFF as its own corporate social responsibility strategy.

Bassey, who signed the agreement on behalf of his company, said his company intended to create an authentic and internationally accepted platform, where Nigerians can access sports merchandise.

“We have come to associate with NFF to reach out to our customers. We want to assist NFF to promote grassroots football in Nigeria,” Bassey said.

The NFF chairman, Amaju Pinnick, who signed the two agreements on behalf of NFF said the private sector partnership with NFF was borne out of the transparent ways his board members had handled football affairs so far.

“The opportunity to have the support of TGI Group and the reward for the `Man of the Match’ award will have a huge benefit for the team to achieve our goals.

“We also talk a lot about creating memories and no doubt working with TGI Group will create some fantastic memories,” Pinnick said.
