The Fab-5 Football Initiative, which started in 2012, is a platform designed for promoting education through sports participation at the grassroots and primary schools. It includes a mini football competition, scholarship activities and the opportunity to attend a the FCB Escola Lagos mentoring programme.
“We are happy to partner the Fab-5 Initiative once again and contribute our quota to keeping our children engaged and active. What continues to endear us to the Initiative is the credibility of the organizers as well as the fusion of education and sport. At Dufil Prima, our objective is to cater to the well being of the Nigerian child, making them strong and healthy,” said Tope Ashiwaju, PR & Events Manager.
The 2018 edition will see the involvement of schools from 20 LGEAs in the state. These include both boys and girls categories. The mini football tournament climaxes with a 2-day finale in May to coincide with the Children’s Day celebrations.
The Fab-5 Football Initiative is also supported by the State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB).
