Assist in sponsoring sports, NSC to corporate organizations
Financial burden on sponsorship of teams for international competitions is overwhelming for the National Sports Commission (NSC), which is why corporate organizations and public spirited individuals must support sports in the country.
Director-General of the NSC, Alhassan Saleh Yakmut, opened up on this while reacting to an appeal for sponsorship by the Nigeria Beach Volleyball team.
Yakmut who spoke on phone to New Nigerian Sports from abroad, explained that no fewer than four teams are sponsored by the NSC every month to competitions abroad, a development that leaves the commission drained of funds.
“We cannot afford to sponsor everything. Every month, virtually four teams go out for competitions,” he said.
The Nigeria Beach Volleyball teams had appealed to the NSC to support in rehabilitating their training courts at the Jabi Lake in Abuja, stressing that the poor condition of the courts affected their camping prior to their participation at the African Continental Cup billed for Morocco this week.
