The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) have announced TGI Group as its official food partners and PayPorte as its official e-Commerce partner after deals were signed Friday.

This is happening less than 24hrs before the Super Eagles of Nigeria will take on the Chipolopolo of Zambia in a crucial 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying match at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium in Uyo.

Tropical General Investments (TGI) Group, an international investment and holding company with diversified interests and investments in Nigeria, were unveiled as Official Food Sponsor of the Super Eagles for the next three years.

In addition, the PayPorte deal which is basically “to grow youth in the country” also makes Payporte the official and “exclusive store for the sale of Super Eagles Merchandise.”

Speaking after the signing, NFF president, Amaju Pinnick called for more of such partnership deals from the private sector as the football house focusses on refocusing the sport.

“They (the partners) have seen our processes and our integrity and they’ve seen we want to be 100 per cent private- sector driven to refocus Nigerian football,” Pinnick said.

“Lots more partnerships like this one will come after the Super Eagles secure the World Cup ticket.

“More Nigerian companies should identify with us because football is huge in this country. I saw loads of buses heading to Uyo as I was driving down from Warri. All of them were coming for tomorrow’s (today) match.”
