Payporte Global System, has thrown its full weight behind the Nigeria Pitch Awards, an initiative of Matchmakers Consult international in collaboration with the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) and the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA).
Bassey Eyo, a serial entrepreneur and CEO of Payporte said this was the first time his company would be getting involved in football because ‘the Nigeria Pitch Awards provides the right platform to reach players, award voters, football journalists and football fans. We have also looked at the award process and are confident that the results will emerge from a transparent and credible process.’
In a related development, the Kaduna State Governor-Elect Mallam Nasir El-Rufai has confirmed that he will grace the Award Ceremony as Special Guest of Honour. The event is billed to hold on Saturday 13 June, just hours after the Nigeria-Chad AFCON qualifiers in Kaduna.
Shina Philips, CEO of Matchmakers Consult International expressed the appreciation of the Nigerian football community to Payporte for its support stressing that the company has rightly positioned itself to attract the attention of millions of football lovers who are also followers of the Nigeria Pitch Awards.
