President of the Nigeria Football Federation, Mr. Amaju Melvin Pinnick, restated the Federation’s support and endorsement for the Nigeria Pitch Awards, with the seventh edition now scheduled for November in Asaba, Delta State.
Speaking in Abuja on Thursday, Pinnick extolled the creativity and ingenuity that Matchmakers Consult International bring into the event and advised that the same laudable qualities should be retained and improved upon for subsequent ceremonies.
“I am impressed by the hard work and transparency that the organizers of the Nigeria Pitch Awards bring into the process and organization of the ceremony each year. Despite a number of challenges and hurdles to cross over the years, they have never faltered in putting up an impressive show and more importantly, the integrity of the selections have been obvious to followers of the game.
“It is rather difficult to keep up standards and maintain certain parameters especially with the hailstorm of the COVID-19, but I want to charge the organizers to do their utmost to maintain the integrity of the awards and strive to keep to the standards they have set over the years.”
The NFF boss assured that the organisation’s support for the awards remains intact, and that the Federation’s top hierarchy will grace this year’s ceremony taking place in the Delta State capital second week of November.
