Football fans will have the chance of winning return air tickets at the rescheduled first leg encounter between Akwa United and Heartland FC on 21st March, in Uyo, the Akwa Ibom State capital.
The air ticket is courtesy Dana Air.
In a statement by its Media and Communications Manager, Kingsley Ezenwa, the Dana Air said the initiative was to encourage more people to follow the Nigerian league teams and encourage them to visit the venues of the matches to cheer the teams to victory.
‘’We are trying to encourage more people to follow our Nigerian teams, players, and also visit the venue of these matches to cheer their teams to victory.
“So, we shall be giving out return tickets to lucky football fans and spectators at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium in Uyo and during the return leg in Owerri,” Ezenwa said.
He said gate receipt was one of the ways teams in the EPL achieve self-sustainability, because the teams use the proceeds plus sponsorship to create a conducive environment for the fans to come watch and promote their activities.
He said most of all, it is used to maintain facilities and pitches to make them better for the players to play good football.
“So we should support the teams by way of going to watch these matches and waving their banners,’’ he said.
The spokesman of the airline added that Dana Air would also be promoting the match on all social media platforms and fans could also win tickets among other prizes.
”This is one of the many initiatives and incentives that will come as a result of our commitment to developing the Nigerian Football league and our sponsorship of these two Nigerian professional league sides,” he said.
