Dalung hails LMC, La Liga partnership



The minister of Youth and Sports, Barrister Solomon Dalung, has
reaffirmed government’s commitment towards making Nigeria investment
The Minister gave the assurance when a delegation of the Spanish Professional League, La Liga and officials of the League Management Company, LMC, paid him a courtesy visit in Abuja on Monday.
“It is of significance that the NPFL and La Liga are entering into an understanding that will improve the business aspects of the league in
Nigeria. Such areas will boost the earnings of football which will
in turn impact positively on the welfare of the players while creating new
frontiers for business”, Dalung said.

LMC chairman, Shehu Dikko said, “We need to get our league to conform to
international standards and best practices. La Liga is one of the best
leagues in the world.
Dikko added that the Memorandum of Understanding will have a technical
arrangement where the LMC can work in all areas to develop the league. These include training of our local coaches and administrators, youth and
players’ development, commercial activities, digital media and marketing.
The leader of the La Liga delegation, Mr Javier Tebas said they are ready to set up a liaison office in Nigeria to drive the process.
“We are here not only to teach but to share experience and we are sure we can also learn from the Nigerian Football League.  We will also offer our
expertise not only to football but to the Nigerian government,” he added.
The President of the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF,  Amaju Pinnick, said the partnership was as a result of the many capacity building projects embarked upon by the federation.
The partnership between the NPFL and La Liga is to be consumted on Tuesday, April 26, at the Transcorp Hilton, Abuja.
