Strategic partners to the Nigeria Premier Football League (NPFL), GTI Asset Management & Trust Limited, has commended Propel Sports Africa as they build up for the OTT live streaming of the elite league ahead of the new season commencing on August 26, 2023.
GTI/TNFF Head of Media and Publicity, Andrew Ekejiuba, revealed this in a press statement made available to sports journalists in Lagos on Monday.
He thumbed up Propel Sports Africa as they have commenced training of cameramen who will man their AI Cameras to be used for the live streaming of NPFL matches across the country.
“GTI is delighted with what Propel Sports Africa has so far done in the past few days by deploying and training young Nigerians nationwide who will be manning these state-of-the-art cameras in the various match venues in the upcoming season.
“The crew commenced their training from Lagos on August 5, 2023 and later moved to other venues across the country,” Ekejiuba said.
However, GTI will continue to work closely with the newly inaugurated Board of the Nigeria Premier League (NPL) led by Hon. Gbenga Elegbeleye towards a successful and seamless execution of the upcoming season.
GTI’s Executive Director, Nelson Ine who also doubles as Project Director of The Nigeria Football Fund (TNFF) made the observation and appealed to all stakeholders of the elite league to join hands together to uplift the NPFL.
“It is the hope of GTI that all hands must be on deck in order to reposition our elite league such that it ranks among the best globally.
“GTI is ready, and willing to contribute more to the success story of NPFL as we also urge Corporate Nigeria and individuals to invest in NPFL to create a brighter future for our upcoming super stars in the beautiful game of football.
“However, very soon some major partners/sponsors will be unveiled for the NPFL before the commencement of the new season as discussions are at advanced stage in this regard,” Ine concluded.
