This much was announced by Chairman, Main Organising Committee of the Victor Ezeji Testimonial China Acheru in Port Harcourt.
“Owu Sports has become a major player in the Nigeria Professional Football League in recent times kitting clubs like Shooting Stars, Kwara Utd, Akwa Utd and Remo Stars,” The Main Organising Committee chairman said.
Acheru continued that it’s indeed noteworthy that a brand like Owu has decided to identify with the Ezeji Testimonial.
“They are a Nigerian brand with quite a number of years in the league now and we are happy to have them as partners.”
Chief executive officer Owu Sports Wear, Barrister Tunji Brown speaking to VET media confirmed the partnership and informed that his company will be charged with also producing replica kits to be worn by fans for the event.
“We are partnering with them in the supply of kits for the event. This is in the area of kits that will be worn by Victor Ezeji and friends and the NPFL players that will be playing and also with the provision of replicas for the event. That is exactly what we are doing.”
Brown also spoke of his company’s delight on being part of the first testimonial to be held for a player in the Nigerian league.
“If you look at what Victor Ezeji has done for the league, it is comparable to what the likes of Ryan Giggs and Steven Gerard did for the English Premier League with so many years behind them.
“It is exactly what Ezeji has done for the Nigerian League.
“It (testimonial) also serves as motivation for those that are presently playing in the Nigerian League that you could actually make a living playing in the Nigerian league and when you eventually hang up your boots that Nigeria will also be willing to celebrate you just as it is being done for Victor Ezeji right now,” Tunji Brown said.
The Victor Ezeji Testimonial will be played on the 17th of December in Port Harcourt and is expected to feature Friends of Victor squaring up against a Team NPFL.
