Football is rightfully called the number one sporting activity in the world. It plays an important role in the lives of many. Football is even more significant to people with limited physical abilities in Nigeria.
As an effort to improve the growth of the sport in Nigeria, international sports betting platform Betway has donated valuable football kits to the Nigerian Amputee Team at an event which held on Tuesday, January 14, 2019, in Lagos.
