How does 1xBet contribute to grassroots football development?

As part of the 1xBet Cup Nigeria tournament, 1xBet gives football players a chance to showcase their talents. The first edition was held in 2023 and attracted over 40 teams from Lagos to compete for a prize pool of 5,000,000 NGN. FC Bariga team won the competition and was awarded the grand prize of a 1,000,000 NGN check.

In 2024, 1xBet will continue to delight the residents of the country’s largest metropolis and will host the 1xBet Cup with an impressive prize fund of 20,000,000 NGN. The main tournament goal remains the same—to support young athletes and Nigerian amateur football.

“I am thrilled that 1xBet Cup in Lagos is becoming a tradition and our young players have a chance to show their talents. It is important for us that all participants and fans feel the atmosphere of a big football tournament, so the matches will be held in large stadiums with professional referees. I hope we will see a lot of great goals, and brilliant saves and learn about new talents who will eventually become worthy successors to Jay Jay Okocha, Nwankwo Kanu, and other Nigerian football legends,”

– said Mr. Waidi Akanni, the tournament organizer.

“We are proud to invest in grassroots football. Last year’s tournament was a real football festival, opening new opportunities for many young players. Each team represents their community, inspiring and uniting people around them. We are delighted that our work is bringing joy to the people of Lagos and hope that they will once again enjoy the tournament,”

– said a 1xBet representative.
