The Director-General of the National Institute for Sports (NIS), Professor Olawale Moronkola, has assured the management of the Nigerian National League (NNL) of support towards a hitch-free new season.
Speaking during a courtesy visit by the Chairman of the Nigerian National League board, George Aluo, to the foremost sports Institute in Lagos on Wednesday, Professor Moronkola said “We are excited by your visit and commend your decision to partner NIS to carry out our mandate of research and training.
“We shall give you all necessary support to add value to our local League through the training of coaches. While we shall provide our expertise to make the training a success, I urge you to seek the support of corporate organizations who are inclined to football development to sponsor the training.”
In his response, Aluo disclosed that the board is planning to organise a pre- season capacity training programme for the coaches of the 40 NNL clubs to upgrade the knowledge of the coaches in order to improve the standard of the League.
He urged corporate bodies and sports loving individuals to rally round the board as it strives to take the league to a new level.
