The first out-of-Lagos TPL, tagged #TPL042, symbolising the phone dial code of the chosen city, will be held this month (March 19th) just before Easter at UNEC Temporary Stadium, Enugu with four new teams to represent 4 major areas in Enugu Metropolis.
The teams are @OtigbaFC (New Haven), @ConneFC (GRA), @OringoFC (Trans Ekulu) and @FCBisala (Independence Layout).
The teams have weekly trainings, club photoshoots and engage with their new fans through giveaways in a bid to grow local support.
The TPL is not just about highly talented and passionate footballers competing for the much coveted TPL Championship title; it is also a networking event for youths to connect with each other, strengthen old bonds and foster new long lasting friendships whilst promoting grassroot football. It also provides a wonderful opportunity for young entrepreneurs and SME owners to promote, market and sell their products and services.
At the #TPL042, there will be side attractions at the event such as dancers/cheerleaders, medical team, food and drink (palm wine, abacha with nkwobi, small chops etc) vendors, great music, video games, snooker, table tennis and Dart. This is a great way to relax after an exhausting week at the office or school. It’s also a great way to support grassroot football and entrepreneurship in the City so don’t be left out, be part of history.
