SA Insurance Emerges Official Insurer Of Nationwide League

Standard Alliance Insurance Plc, one of the nation’s frontline underwriting companies, has emerged the Official Insurer of the Nigeria Nation-Wide League which kicked off last week at the Kano Pillars Stadium, Kano.
The league which is the third-tier of organized league football in Nigeria commenced on Thursday with Wudil FC and Shekarau Babes FC, both based in Kano.
Speaking after the opening match which ended with Shekarau Babes beating Wudil FC 2-1, the company’s Head of Corporate Communications, Nelson Egboboh, praised the organisers for the quality start, noting that Standard Alliance Insurance Plc had no reason to regret its decision to identify with the league.
Egboboh, who said the company was providing Group Personal Accident cover for all the players and officials during the five-month league season, explained that this was not the first time the company would be showing this passion as it had thrown its insuring weight behind sporting activities like golf, squash and boxing tournaments at different times.
He said as a sport-loving corporate citizen, the company was always interested in joining hands with everyone towards the development of all sporting activities in the country.
Meanwhile, the Executive Secretary of the League, Olushola Ogunnowo, has explained that the league season, which ends in October will be played in Divisions 1-3, disclosing that a total of 160 clubs and over 13,000 players will be participating across the three divisions.
According to him, whereas division two will kick off on 14 May, the third division will commence in July.
While thanking Standard Alliance Insurance Plc for taking up the Official Insurer role, he charged the company’s management to “remain on this unique path of identifying with events of this nature, noting that “this decision to provide our players and officials the much needed insurance cover stands the company out as one of first choice to patronize whenever we need further insurance services.”
