“Mr Aiyegbeni has pledged to provide many balls for the organizers and participating clubs. These balls are high quality balls that will be very useful to the players. We are grateful to have someone like Aiyegbeni showing genuine concern about youth football development in Benin city,” Ugbodagha said.

The secretary appealed to other corporate bodies and individuals to key into the Benin City Youth League by contacting the LMC or FEYSOC.
