Despite the relegation of Sharks FC from the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) on Sunday, official shirt sponsors of the club, Eunisell Limited says the development will not deter its commitment towards helping the league achieve its full potential.
The company made this known in a statement issued on Thursday, following the relegation of Sharks to the NNL. Group Managing Director of Eunisell, Mr Chika Ikenga was quoted as saying the sad development will not deter his company from continuing with its support for the league as it has done in the past.
“We will not abandon the league; neither will we abandon Sharks FC because of the relegation. Though they will be playing in the second tire league, we won’t terminate our contract with them. We will rather encourage them to improve on their game and hopefully come back to play in the NPFL.
We know our league can create jobs and reach its highest potential if well supported. That is why we got involved in the first place and we won’t withdraw our support in a bid to help the county achieve its full potential in this regard” he said.
Sharks FC of Port-Harcourt were relegated after a 1-0 away loss to Abia warriors on Sunday 15th November. This came despite the team securing a shirt sponsorship deal with Eunisell earlier this year.
