Annual national Under 17 Cricket tournament gets continuity boost from PwC

Posted : 15 February 2024

PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), sponsors of the annual national Under 17 Cricket tournament, have reiterated their support and highlighted the gains recorded so far in the tournament.

Tolu Adeleke, Partner and Representative of PwC, stated in a news conference that the organization would continue supporting grassroots development in the country.

“I think we have been particularly impressed with what we have seen in the last five years as a partner with the Nigeria Cricket Federation (NCF) on this journey.

“On this journey, there are lots of milestones. We have seen successes over the years, and I can say that it aligns with the purpose of PwC, which is building trust, care, teamwork, friendship, and more.

“We have seen lots of talents emerge from this competition, lots of exploits, and seen these talents represent the national team.

“These are one of the many positives we count in our review of this partnership, and we hope to continue,” Adeleke said.

On his part, Sanni Mohammed, Secretary-General of the federation, lauded PwC, adding that their support has been instrumental in the development of the game in the country.

“We would like to thank PwC for their support in grassroots sport development and particularly cricket.

“This has become a competition that players look forward to, and it only gets better every year.

“We saw more states participate in the qualifiers in January. From 29 states for the boys and 25 for the girls last year, we saw 33 for boys and 29 for girls this year.

“So, this is quite impressive as we see developmental programs and engagements around the country.

“Most of the athletes on the national team were discovered at the PwC tournament, and they will now go on to make history as cricket will be making a debut at the African Games in Ghana,” he said.

The tournament begins today (Thursday) and will end on Sunday at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium, Abuja.
