OISA to present club kits, logo on Tuesday at Ngor Okpalla


Philantropist par excellence, Chief Innocent Onwubiko has told sports journalists Onwubiko International Sports Academy (OISA) will be presented to Imolites on Tuesday, April 6th as the team gears up for the Nigeria Nationwide League One coming up in June this year.

The astute administrator who made this disclosure on Saturday In a chat with Sports Writers Association of Nigeria, Imo Chapter explained that OISA will also use the medium to present the club’s logo, kits and others to Imo people also on Tuesday.

Chief Onwubiko also elucidated the plans he has for the gigantic project of the Onwubiko International Soccer Academy and Stadium to make world class edifice and a place of note to visit.

He lamented the decline in age grade competitions and opined that the enormous projects such as the one at Onwubiko International Socer Academy and Stadium, Ngor Okpalla will help restore Nigeria’s pride.

“I am inviting you to come and witness officially what we have been doing. This is like a build up to our major event on Tuesday,” Onwubiko began in a chat with Imo SWAN.

“On Tuesday, we are calling on Imo State and Nigeria as a whole and even Africa to support what we are doing as much as they can. Here is a huge facility ongoing. No one that will come here won’t be amazed at the massive project ongoing.

“We have been constantly working daily to ensure that we deliver on our target. By my right, there will be very spectacular spectator stands. We are the field and the hotel at the back of it so that a fan can check into the hotel and watch the beautiful game from his hotel room. At the back of the goal posts is a four-storey building for students and in that building, we also have so many facilities like gymnasium, indoor soccer field, and so forth.

“We also have the plan to have another natural field. There is a land here we are trying to acquire and if we succeed with that, it is going to be our artificial pitch. We are going to have two natural pitches, one indoor artificial field and also another outdoor artificial pitch.

“My goal is to continue to fight whatever is the problem that is hindering sports development in Nigeria. Nigeria is known for two teams internationally, crime and football. Nigeria teams are known from the Under 17 national team but these talents have not been well nurtured to progress to the senior national team. A project like this is a foundation that can help Nigeria to get to that level.

“I am also glad to tell you that we are getting recognition from the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF). They have been here to inspect what we are doing. They would have witnessed our event on Monday but because we shifted it by one day, they won’t be able to.”

Onwubiko International Soccer Academy and Stadium hosted the Nigeria Nationwide League One last month where six teams took part and Udala FC, Anambra picked the centre’s ticket.
