Last year, Connectnigeria.com reported on the Gulder 5-Aside Football
tournament. Once again the 2012 edition of the competition is around. This yearly football tournament, organised by Nigerian Breweries Plc, is a great step towards improving grassroots football in Nigeria, and also helping people financially as the winners of the competition get to go home with a generous 5 million naria.
This is the third edition and it’s expected to be bigger and better as the awareness grows with each event. It will take place in different regional zones around the country. The 6 regional match venues are in Makurdi, Enugu, Lagos, Ijebu Ode, Warri, and Porthacourt.
