Lagos, Nigeria: Our supporters are everything, their cheers spur us and their comfort remains our aim. Over the past few weeks, we have come together with a view to continuing the brilliance in engaging you, our supporters and bringing the fun through the football, in an organised environment and today we are proud to announce The Socialiga.
A hybrid of the words, Social and Liga, the SociaLiga is an amateur football league that will see six teams participate in “year long” season culminating in a playoff with teams from Abuja and Port Harcourt at the end of the year at a venue to be disclosed by the local organising committee.
We have realised that people need to have fun in different environments and so we have also created experiences that will see the current teams file out in basketball gear for our first Basketball event in Mid-2016.
On the 19th of December 2015, we will be holding our Welcome/Christmas picnic for fans and supporters of SociaLiga teams this will also double as a Pre-season tourney for some of the teams. This event will include side attractions including barbecue stands, video game competitions that will see the winner and two runners-up walk away with cash prizes.
