The General Manager of one of the foremost football clubs in Nigeria, Rangers International, Amobi Ezeaku, has expressed his commitment to investing in female football in the country.

Mr. Amobi Ezeaku stated his commitment when he visited the national U17 girls’ team in Abuja to show his support ahead of their match against Burkina Faso.

During the visit, the Rangers International GM presented the team with monetary gifts to motivate them.

This gesture demonstrates Amobi’s commitment to female football and his desire to see Rangers International establish a strong presence in the women’s game. He had recently hinted at the possibility of the club acquiring a female team, in line with CAF’s guidelines.

The U17 girls’ team, known as the Flamingos, will face Burkina Faso in Abuja after playing out a 1-1 draw in Ouagadougou. Amobi’s visit is a timely boost to the team’s morale ahead of this crucial match.

Amobi’s support for the Flamingos is part of a larger plan to develop female football in Nigeria. With Rangers International aiming to return to continental football, the General Manager recognizes the importance of having a strong women’s team.

The NFF-led board of Ibrahim Gusau has also been working to promote female football in Nigeria, and Amobi’s efforts are a welcome addition to these initiatives. By supporting the Flamingos, Amobi is investing in the future of female football.

The Flamingos who finished third in the last World Cup will face Burkina Faso in Abuja, on Saturday buoyed by the support of Amobi and the NFF after playing out a one-all draw in Burkina Faso.
