LaLiga Foundation donates cash, equipment to El-Kanemi


/ by Editor
LaLiga Foundation, a charity arm of the Spanish League Association, has announced that it will support El-Kanemi Warriors of Maiduguri with cash and equipment in furtherance of the recently signed Memorandum of Understanding with the League Management Company for collaboration with the Nigeria Professional Football League.

According to Punch, while in Nigeria during the official ceremonies to unveil the NPFL-LaLiga partnership, the Spanish league officials were touched by the impact of the Boko Haram insurgency in the North East, which led to El-Kanemi having to play their home games for two seasons away from their traditional Maiduguri ground.

It was learnt that after discussions and presentations made by the LMC to LaLiga, their response was positive.

 “We are writing to you from LaLiga Foundation in relation with our next collaboration and would through this official communication confirm our intention to collaborate with the El-Kanemi Team as a great opportunity to start working together,” wrote Olga de la Fuente of the Professional Football Foundation of LaLiga to the LMC chairman, Shehu Dikko.

The partnership will consist of a cash grant of 54,000 Euros and sporting materials including training shirts, official balls and other equipment.

“We are very grateful to LaLiga for the assistance they have offered. We intend to deploy the fund to upgrade some of the facilities in our camp, build a gym where the players can train without going out and also repair some of the basic facilities inside the stadium that may have run down,” Chairman of El-Kanemi Warriors, Zana Malla Kakaje, said.
