Nigerian football teams to play in Davao City

Davao City (31 July) — A PLAN to stage friendly matches between Davao City and a number of teams from Nigeria is now in the drawing board between the Davao Football Association and the Surulere Grassroot Football Club sometime in August 2007 at the DFA Football Field in this city.

This was learned today from DFA Secretary General Erwin Protacio who is currently finalizing the final date of the friendly matches among Nigerian male and female youth players with ages ranging from 15 to 21.

Earlier plans to stage the match in time for the Kadayawan Festival has been shelved due to the difficulties in booking the Nigerian delegation as most hotels in Davao City are already fully booked.

At least forty players and coaches from the African country are expected to plane in here via Manila once all arrangements are completed including final approval of their visas.

The Nigerian Surulere football Club has for its objective to let their youth sail out for ideas and knowledge of development for them to meet with other people from other nations and exchange ideas, culture and developments. (PIA XI/Romy Sabaldan) [top]
