Owu Sportswear Limited today, 13th of August, 2021 at the Ojuelegba office of the company signed a Memorandum of Understanding, (MoU) with the Ekiti State Football Association to supply kits for a player of the Ekiti State Football Association’s female U-15 team (Ekiti Queen Bees), Marvelous Jegede.
The MoU detailed the yearly provision of soccer boots, pairs of hose, training jerseys, track suits, sport bags and customized t-shirts for the rising star.
The MoU is tenable for 3 years and Owu Sportswear Limited in fulfillment of the deal has made funds available for soccer boots for the teenager who is a SS1 student at Ado Community High school, Ado Ekiti.
Owu Sportswear Limited’s endorsement deal for Jegede came on the heels of her outstanding performance at the Prof. Akin Oyebode U-15 Football Competition for boys and girls held earlier this year despite playing with substandard boots, a story which touched the CEO of the leading Nigerian kit manufacturer, Barrister Tunji Brown.
An elated Ekiti State FA chairman, Mr. Bayo Olanlege heaped praises on Barr. Tunji Brown who hails from Ayede Ekiti in Oye Local Government of Ekiti State.
According to Olanlege, “It is a thing of joy to have Barr. Tunji Brown keeping his words to Marvelous, we are encouraged by this kind gesture and I pray that a lot of persons out there would support what we are doing at the association as we hope to give our youth the opportunity, hope and motivation to be the best they can be”.
