Aiteo is currently one of the foremost football sponsors in Africa. In April 2017, Aiteo signed a deal with the Nigerian Football Federation(NFF) to pump in N2.5 billion into the National teamsÂ within five years. In its bid to support the local teams, Aiteo took over the sponsorship of Nigeriaâ€™s oldest football tournament, the Federation cup, now renamed Aiteo cup. Aiteo is now the official optimum partner of the Super Eagles in the Russia 2018 World Cup. Aiteo also sponsored the last edition of the CAF awards, as well as the first ever NFF awards in Nigeria.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram According to Benedict Peters, the Executive Vice Chairman of Aiteo Global Group, the Groupâ€™s sponsorship of the theme song is yet another demonstration of its commitment to promoting football in Nigeria as a means of uniting the people.â€œFootball is a phenomenon in Nigeria. You can see and feel its power on every street. It galvanizes unity amongst our people, irrespective of ethnic or class differences. As the World Cup kicks off, we solidly throw our weight behind our national team and its ever-effervescent supporters spread across the globe. We look forward to football moments that will become historic as the Eagles play to covet the World Cup trophy,â€ he said. Aiteoâ€™s motivation comes in form of promise of a financial reward of $50, 000 dollars (N18 million) for every goal unanswered by their opponents. Owing to this, energy giant, and premium optimum sponsors, AITEO have expressed their happiness about Eagles deserved victory and have immediately re-echoed their promise of splashing out the sum of $50,000 to the team for every unreturned goal being scored. And being that the team happened to have scored two goals, without any being returned, this will leave the team carting home a whopping $100,000 (about N36mn), from AITEO. Perhaps no Nigerian player remembers this fact more than Ahmed Musa, the man of the match who netted a brace against Iceland. Or could it be that during the half time break that changed everything, Coach Gernot Rohr reminded them of Aiteoâ€™s promise?After a trying first half without a shot on target, Nigeria came into the second half looking menacing. Musaâ€™s two spectacular goals were enough to melt down the snow men from Iceland. Now we are looking at a whopping N36 million for the Eagles. Aiteo has also commissioned a theme song for the Super Eagles, which was done by Phyno and Olamide, two of Nigeriaâ€™s hottest artistesTwo weeks ago, during the unveiling of the Super Eagles theme song for the Super Eagles, the Deputy CEO of the company, Francis Peters had reaffirmed their commitment to supporting the National team and told Nigerians: â€œFor every un-responded goal by the Super Eagles in the World Cup, we will donate $50, 000 dollars (N18 million)â€. Nigeria is back in contention for second round qualification from group D after defeating Iceland 2-0 in an exciting encounter on June 22, 2018, thanks to the resurgence of the Super Eagles, and the motivation from Energy giant, Aiteo.
