The United Kingdom-based Fintech entrepreneur, Mr Dozy Mmobousi set to unveil a new Football club in Surulere, Lagos, Nigeria on Saturday.

This came after the establishment of Sporting Lagos Football Club. The football fans in Surulere and adjourning areas would in the coming season, enjoy club football as Club 1472 berths in the Sportscity.

Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Club 1472, Dr. Segun Sanni asserted that the format adopted to unveil the club to fans was carefully planned to take the team to the people.

“We would be starting a procession from the area that has traditionally hosted sports grounds in Lagos, which is Teslim Balogun Stadium, the former UAC Ground.

“The parade with bands, motorcade and our players would terminate at the Union Bank Sports Ground on Bode Thomas with a cocktail for Media personalities and invited guests,” he said.

The CEO, while speaking further said that the target of the club is to join the elite Nigeria Premier League (NPFL), and to be competing next season at the Nigeria National League (NNL).

“However, most celebrities with roots in Surulere have already identified with the club and would be in attendance at the ceremony,” says Sanni.

Continuing, “We truly want to build a club that belongs to the people and we have intentionally reached some prominent Surulere residents including popular Nollywood actors and politicians who have shown enthusiasm for the club.”
