AFCON 2021: Lagos erects free viewing centres for football lovers

Lagos State Government on Friday announced the establishment of 10 viewing centres via the Lagos State Sports Commission (LSSC) and sponsorship from private sectors.

The development was disclosed in a statement issued by Titi Oshodi-Eko, the LSSC Director of Public Relations.

According to her, the public-private sector viewing centres have kicked off in earnest across the state.

Oshodi, who noted that the viewing centres were adequately secured, said the aim was to use the Africa Cup of Nations 2021 (AFCON) to unite residents of the state.

She said the viewing centres are located at Teslim Balogun Stadium in Surulere; Campos Mini Stadium, Lagos Island; Naval Yard, Ajegunle; and Abesan playground.

Others, according to the statement, are Bishop Aggrey Youth Centre, Mushin; Epe Recreation Centre, Italewa Ikorodu; Badagry Grammar School, Badagry; Agege Stadium, Agege; and Mobolaji Johnson Sports Center, Rowe Park, Yaba.

“The idea of the private sectors partnering with State Government is to bring football closer to Lagos residents which will be more fun and entertaining as fans watch all the matches of the Africa Cup of Nations 2021 (AFCON).

“As part of this administration’s theme, the viewing centres will serve as an avenue to bring people together for a better world and this is what LSSC is doing with the AFCON Viewing Centres.” He said
