Pipul TV partners KIFA on football development

Nigeria’s foremost and wholly-owned Internet protocol television (IPTV) service, Pipul TV, has boosted its drive to take its unique sports and entertainment programmes to every home, with the signing of sports and business partnership deal with Nigeria and Africa’s largest football academy, Kanu International Football Academy (KIFA).

The deal that was signed Wednesday, June 23, in Abuja, would see Pipul TV providing KIFA with dedicated sports channels for its wide range of activities and particularly its football programmes. On its part, KIFA, with over 120 football centres spread across the 36 states and FCT in Nigeria, would equally provide sports and entertainment contents for the benefits of its large membership and the football-loving public on the dedicated channels.

Speaking after the epochal event, the Chief Executive Officer of Pipul TV, Benjamin Okoroafor, expressed his delight on the partnership between his rave-making company and KIFA.

“This is a great day. I am optimistic and happy over this deal. It will surely define a better course for the development of grassroots football development in Nigeria.

“We’ll be covering activities, games and events of KIFA on specially dedicated 24/7 sports channel for the delight of our ever-growing subscribers. This deal with KIFA is a win-win situation for Nigerian sports lovers,” Okoroafor remarked confidently.

“Pipul TV is committed to contributing positively to the rapid development and advancement of grassroots sports in Nigeria because we believe that is the most assured way to upgrading the level of the Nigerian sporting landscape. We believe the attention we will bring to grassroots sports with our far-reaching and highly accessible and available broadcast platform will empower both athletes, spectators, and investors alike to reap the rich rewards Nigerian sports has to offer.”

Prince Dapo Ajibade, Director-General of KIFA, equally stated that the deal between both parties would positively help to bolster and reposition grassroots football development in Nigeria. “This is a ground-breaking collaboration between two great organizations. Pipul TV is a uniquely different media and television outfit, with the wherewithal, technical expertise, and characteristics to positively change the narratives of grassroots football development.

“This is a great move and the right way to go for grassroots football development. And we believe Nigeria and African football would benefit from this historic partnership,” the multiple award-winning football administrator and former Executive Chairman of Sunshine Stars of Akure,” he stated.

The unique streaming platform is set to roll out KIFA and other sports and local content within the coming few weeks, under its ‘MissNothing campaign’ that ensures that all its subscribers miss nothing in the world of sports and entertainment.
