Egbe Hails Court Judgment on Pinnick, Others

first_img“As I have always said, Nigerian interest should come first and not that of aggrieved individuals. With this court judgment, I think all the distractions should stop. We need to remain focused and plan how to move the game forward in our country. There is no progressive mind that should support this “Pull Them Down” thing.“Nigeria is at the moment bidding to host the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup. If we don’t put our house in order, we won’t get the hosting right. With distractions, we can’t do well in international tournaments and the sponsors won’t be there to support the game.“That our league don’t have a title sponsor today is a fallout of the distractions the NFF board is facing. Now that the court has cleared Amaju (Pinnick) and his team, I think enough is enough,” Egbe declared.The youthful Bayelsa soccer buff who is in Germany attending a three-day seminar on stadium facilities said his company, Monimichelle would on its part continue to pursue its vision of making Nigerian stadium facilities, especially the turfs better.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Nigeria’s FIFA licensed match agent and stadium facilities expert, Ebi Egbe, has hailed Tuesday’s court judgment in which the leadership of the nation’s soccer governing body, NFF were discharged and acquitted over alleged corruption.The chieftains of the Nigeria Football Federation, including its President, Mr. Amaju Melvin Pinnick were discharged and acquitted on all counts of alleged corruption charges in a case brought by the defunct Special Presidential Investigation Panel, (SPIP).Speaking on the judgment, Egbe who is the Chief Executive Officer of Monimichelle said the development is victory for Nigerian football, even as he charged stakeholders to rally round Pinnick and his board in the interest of the country’s football.last_img read more

Football’s global superstars inspire new markets on 1xBet

first_img MansionBet adds Bristol City to sponsorship portfolio August 20, 2020 StumbleUpon Share Share Why leading esports titles should not be overlooked as substitutes to real sports April 15, 2020 European operator 1xBet has enhanced both its B2B and B2C offering with the all new “Player vs Player” and “Player vs Team” markets.Punters can now bet on a player to score more goals than the whole opposing team, as well as betting on a player to score more goals than a particular player of the opposing team.For instance, if the match is Morocco vs Portugal, it would be possible for a customer to place a bet on Cristiano Ronaldo to score more goals than the whole Moroccan team.Eugene Kiryukhin, 1xBet’s Director for Development of International Partners, was quick to stress the value of this new offering, by saying: “Football is a team game. But sometimes football players become superstars with fans of their own – and an inspiration for the young.”He added: “Often, the whole team is organised around one star footballer. And so, we thought it would be interesting to assess the contribution of players to the overall match result, with the help of our new markets.”The firm also announced its Bet Builder option, which allows customers to combine several bets into one with the best odds, with markets such as match result, double chance, total goals, correct score all available.The new additions come after 1xBet increased its advertising presence last month when securing a long-term agreement with Tottenham Hotspur, becoming the club’s ‘Official Betting Partner for Africa’.The company will get coverage at the club’s home matches via the LED perimeter system, as well as a presence on the new website and digital channels across the continent until 2022.1xBet will be exhibiting at next week’s Betting on Sports conference.
