The Organisers of the forthcoming National Freestyle Football Championship in Nigeria hosted by Feet â€˜nâ€™ Tricks International Limited are excited about the venue of the final.
The parking space of the Ikeja City Mall is the venue for the event and the location has been described as â€˜perfectâ€™ by the organisers.
The CEO of Feet n Tricks, Oâ€™dyke Nzewi, noted that fans and participants would have fun at the event which is being sponsored by GAC Motors, a product of Guangzhou Automobile Group Motor Company Limited and the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS).
â€œWe are very delighted that the venue is a centre point of the city. Because it is not hidden, we expect a huge turnout of fans and we also believe so many people go the Ikeja City mall and they will get to see what we are doing, â€œNzewi said.
Thousands of entries were received via the designated registration platform where participants uploaded a 30 seconds video of themselves in freestyling.
These video entries were subjected to a screening process by professional judges after which 16 male and eight female freestyle footballers have emerged for the July 23 finals.
Already, the President and Founder of the World Federation of Freestyle Football, Daniel Wood, has confirmed that he would be in Lagos for the event.
A former Nigerian international, Nwankwo Kanu, is one of the three judges for the freestyle football final. Other are former European Champion, Daniel Mikolaj, and another African, Joel Asare, who is a two-time Ghanaian champion.
