The interest in the 1XCUP tournament was so intense that the organizer decided to create an additional Instagram team. The official 1xBet social media page subscribers were asked to complete a registration form. As a result, the organizer received more than 50 applications from players and two from entire squads. After processing the questionnaires, a new team will be formed and entered into one of the conferences.
Legendary Nigerian footballer Daniel Amokachi expressed his support for the Lagos amateur squads at the 1XCUP tournament. During his career, Daniel managed to play in Club Brugge, Everton, and Beşiktaş, was part of the Nigerian national team at the 1994 and 1998 World Championships, won the 1994 African Cup of Nations, and became Olympic champion in Atlanta!
“This competition is in the grass grassroots. This competition is about uniting Nigerians. And this competition is about giving youngsters the enabled environment to exploit their talent. And that was the main reason why I jumped into the boat.
And, of course, we cannot thank 1xBet enough for having this initiative. Football to unite Nigerians. Football to unite communities. I think that’s strong.
Will it be huge? Definitely, yes. You know, 1xBet is not a corporate organization that will just come and disappear. They’ve been here for five years.
And, of course, it will definitely bring us together as Nigerians. It will definitely create an opportunity. We will definitely see young players getting opportunities.
The bookmaker supports aspiring football players and amateur squads,” – Daniel Owefin Amokachi pointed out.
