Channels TV wins AITEO-NFF award again
Nigerian broadcaster Channels Television has been honoured with the AITEO-Nigeria Football Federation award for the second year in a row.
The Channels International Kids Cup tournament, a CSR programme that began life in 2009, previously received this award for helping to develop an interest in football among kids in primary school below the age of 13.
The second edition of the AITEO-NFF awards took place recently in Lagos, and winning this award for the second time shows the media company’s commitment to promoting football at the grassroots level.
The award was received by Channels TV sports correspondent Austin Okon-Akpan, who stated that the aim of all this programme is to encourage young boys to love football and education.
“You can learn good things when you play football. We are teaching them integrity and honesty,” he said. The Channels International Kids Cup tournament has now become an international event that features participants from the Benin Republic and Ghana.
