The Nigeria Basketball Federation (NBBF) on Tuesday said it would unveil a new sponsor for the national division 1 and 2 league competitions on Thursday in Lagos.

NBBF’s Media Officer, Afolabi Oni, in a statement said the sponsorship deal would be a major breakthrough for the domestic league.

The statement quoted NBBF President, Musa Kida, as saying the deal would mark a new dawn for all stakeholders, especially players and officials who are the major actors.

“This sponsorship agreement till date will be the biggest deal that has ever been signed at this level of our national league, to cater for players in the lower divisions.

“’We are used to gathering teams in a particular location for one week under the guise of playing Divisions 1 and 2 with players and respective clubs benefiting nothing at the end of this jamboree.

“Under this new arrangement, the divisions will be targeted at grassroots players and rookies, who are just at the developmental stage of the game, with more games expected to be played,” Kida said.

He assured that the federation was working round the clock to deliver on its promise of securing a better life for players plying their trade in the domestic league.

Kida went on to say there were greater deals coming the way of the sport at the higher level.

“If we have been able to pull off such a feat for Division 1 and Division 2, there are bigger plans for the Premier League division and the Zenith Bank-sponsored Women’s League,” he said. (NAN)
