Betway donates kits to amputee eagles

Sports betting company Betway in Lagos donated football kits to the Nigerian Amputee Football team at an event recently.

The Special Eagles, who have faced many challenges, made their debut Amputee Football World Cup in Mexico in 2018 after support from Nigerians.

In a statement, Betway said they decided to support the team because football played an important role in the lives of many Nigerians – especially those with physical disabilities.

Country Manager for Betway Nigeria, Lere Awokoya, said, “We are happy to support the development of the Nigerian Amputee Football team and we truly appreciate the players and staff for their efforts in inspiring other Nigerians, and for flying Nigeria’s flag with pride. Betway will continue to support the football community and worthy social causes, all for the love of the game.”

Spokesperson for the Special Eagles, Goodluck Obieze, praised Betway for their support to the team. He called on other corporate entities to support the team and other less popular sports in the country.


Items donated by the company include first aid kits, nets, crutches, balls, bibs, training jerseys, boots and sports bags.
