Ratels Sports Foundation has partnered organisers of the Most Gorgeous Girl Nigeria, MGGN, to host a Women mini football tournament in Abuja to celebrate the first edition of the beauty pageant which will hold in the city of Abuja.
Grace Ene, who is the Chief Executive Officer of MGGN, organisers of the beauty pageant , said Barrister Paul Edeh’s Ratel Sports Foundation, has agreed to partner with the initiative through the mini tourney which is aimed at creating more awareness, empowerment and hope for the girl-child.
She said “We are glad about this initiative and partnering with one of the leading Sports Foundations in the country, Ratels Sports Development Foundation.
“Through this event, we have been able to share the belief that the girl-child deserves more in our community and with Ratels’ support, we are hopeful that it will create more love and awareness across all quarters.”
On his part, the founder of Ratels Sports Foundation, Barrister Edeh, said, “Today’s event is unique because we are doing it in partnership with a new brand that is in town, the Most Gorgeous Girl Nigeria, which is a beauty pageant.
“They were able to identify areas that we are inclined to support. These are areas that we are happy to invest in.
“Today we have four teams all based in Abuja playing in this tournament and as you can see, they played good football even in the rain.
Edeh also spoke on the financial implication as he said the four teams were supported to participate in the epoch making event.
“It may interest you to know that this mini tournament cost us some money because the girls had to play like eight matches within the space of four hours.
“We paid match indemnities, fed and transported the teams and of course we gave quality footballs to them,” he said.
