Anambra Beach Soccer chairman wants sport included in school curriculum

The Chairman of Anambra Beach Soccer Association, Prof. Victor Madubuko, has expressed the hope that the game will be included in school sports competitions.

Madubuko spoke at the closing of the four-day Nigeria Beach Soccer League in Nnewi, the industrial hub of Anambra, on Sunday.

According to him, Beach Soccer has grown in popularity two years after the association was formed in the state.

He thanked the Anambra Government for promising to support the association in promoting the sport through the construction of beach soccer pitches in the 21 Local Government Areas of the state.

“The intention is that we will have beach soccer made part of school curriculum, so we are reaching out toa the Sports Commission to see how the game can become part of school sports,” Madubuko said.

The second round of Nigeria Beach Soccer League ended with four teams qualifying for the final round of the competition.

The top four teams were Anambra Beach Soccer Warriors, Kada Beach Soccer Club, Kebbi Beach Soccer Club and Kebbi United Beach Soccer Club.
