The Nigeria Embassy in Egypt, after a painstaking research and intelligence gathering, declared the Super Eagles Supporters Club as the Best Supporters Club in Nigeria.
The award couldn’t have come at a better time as the SESC, as acknowledged by all and sundry at the just concluded U-20 African Championship, was highly instrumental to the succes of the Flying Eagles as the Nigerian representatives picked a World Cup ticket after a 3rd place finish at the Champiosnhip courtesy of a 4-0 demolition of their Tunisian counterparts.
Turning out in colourful and remarkable green and white attire, the men and women members of the club sang and danced their way into reckoning all through the championship often defying the weather on chilly nights for the love of the game and fatherland.
The Best Supporters Club Award was received on behalf of the club by the leader of delegation, Alhaji Musiliu Alao Jimoh who thanked the Nigerian Ambassador to Egypt, H.E, Nura Abba Rimi and the rest of the Embassy staff for the recognition while assuring that the best of SESC as a Nigerian football and other sports supporters group is yet to be seen.
