Students key into SuperSport’s Let’s Play initiative



SuperSport has launched its Let’s Play initiative among school children beginning with the pupils of Chrisland Schools, Opebi, Lagos. The initiative kicked off at Chrisland Schools’ Annual Inter-House Sports Competition held recently in Lagos.

The Let’s Play Initiative was launched in Nigeria in 2011 with the objective of encouraging Nigerian youth under the age of 14 to engage in sporting activities.

Mr. Felix Awogu, General Manager, SuperSport Nigeria, said, the company was glad to be part of Chrisland Schools’ Annual Inter- House Sports Competition following the school’s acceptance of their Lets Play initiative.

“We are providing support for young people and urging them to embrace sports in their tender age. This partnership with Chrisland schools is the first in the series and we hope this will go a long way to encourage our children to excel in their pursuit of sports laurels for self, schools, states and country.”

He added that the company will reach out to other schools so as to enhance awareness of Let’s Play.

Mrs Ibironke Adeyemi, Managing Director, Chrisland Educational Organisation, thanked the company for the donation.

“Chrisland Schools is grateful to the management of SuperSport for the initiative. We will do our best to sustain the culture of training the young ones in all sports, which is what the Let’s Play initiative is all about.

“The theme for Chrisland Schools’ 2012 Inter-House Sports Competition is ‘Parade of the Stars’ which is to inspire the young ones to strive for honour in their youth as we are parading Nigeria’s past heroes in sports, so they can look up to them and work hard to be like them one day.

Former Super Eagles defender, Taribo West; the first-ever Nigerian to lift the Fifa Under-17 World Cup in 1985, Nduka Ugbade and a few other stars were on parade to inspire the children. Let’s Play donated 50 t-shirts and 50 soccer balls to the school as part of the campaign to encourage the learners to engage in sport.
