The Surulere Sports City in Lagos recently went agog when Nigerian Bottling Company (NBC) sponsored the TFA Football Academy (TFA) Free Football Clinic for teeming youths for the holidays. The TFA Free Football Clinic was a fun-packed sporting activity that would be forever remember for the participants.

The TFA Free Football Clinic was a 3-day event that took place from 23rd to 25th August, 2017, at the National Institute of Sports (NIS) Training Pitch at the National Stadium, in Surulere, Lagos, had in attendance, male and female youths numbering over 600, from 100 secondary schools spread across the city of Lagos.

NBC was present throughout the duration of the football clinic, providing enough chilled Coca‑Cola drinks to refresh all participants, guests and other soccer loving fans, with opportunity for sales. In addition, Coca‑Cola branded the football patch with floor displays, pitch panels and banners. In addition, NBC donated branded souvenirs, for all the participants, as they were taken through physical fitness training, basic practical rudiments of football, including pep talks and team effectiveness.

The fully Coca‑Cola branded NIS Training Pitch was filled with participants, as they went through professional tutelage and coaching from some ex-Nigerian football internationals and other professional football tutors and coaches that were present to grace the occasion. It was indeed another unique opportunity for NBC and Coca‑Cola to interact, bond and engage the teeming youths as they learnt and developed new skills in the round leather game and the world most popular sports - football.

The TFA Free Football Clinic is part of our social investments in the youths and by extension to the community, is a value adding legacy project for the holiday period, to drive their development and engagement. NBC strongly believes that the Nigerian youths are leaders of tomorrow and will continue to empower and position them for all round leadership.
