‘Zenith Aiming to Discover Future Eagles’


Zenith Bank is working hard to stage a befitting maiden edition of the future Eagles football championship.

The zonal events of the Under-13 and Under-15 football fiesta have been concluded while the final is scheduled to take place next month in Lagos.

The Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Zenith Bank Plc, Peter Amangbo, is delighted over the recent partnership agreement with the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) on talent hunt competition.

Amangbo said Zenith Bank was always committed to helping people attain their dreams in their chosen fields.

The Zenith Bank CEO said: “I recall that the Principal’s Cup competition and the various youth football events were always glorious in the past. The country was able to raise good players then and we are happy to be working with the NFF for the revival of such competitions.”

NFF’s Board Member, Ahmed Fresh, said the competition was part of the key events the Amaju Pinick-led board would use to raise quality talents all over the country.

“We know how important this championship is to the present NFF administration and we will spare no effort to organize a successful competition,” Fresh said.

The finals of the inaugural NFF/Zenith Bank Future Eagles Championship will take place every year to develop Under-13 and Under-15 national football teams.
