Naija Super 8, the recently unveiled football tournament for Nigerian clubs, has kicked off fan voting process for the Nigerian football clubs to participate in the playoffs, scheduled to hold in Uyo, this June.

The voting which commenced on Monday, April 10 and closes on Friday, May 12, has elicited excitement by football clubs shortlisted to participate in the tournament.

Speaking on the commencement of the voting, Managing Director, Flykite Productions, Jenkins Alumona, acknowledged the excitement and commitment shown by the shortlisted football clubs, and urged each of the clubs to embark on innovative fan engagement initiatives that will enable them garner votes from the fans.

“In line with our pronouncements on the process for selecting teams to participate in the Super 8 tournament, we are pleased to inform the Nigerian football community and stakeholders that voting which commenced on Monday 10th April will end on Friday 12th May.

“We urge all football fans to take advantage of this new era in Nigeria’s club football history by voting their preferred club, either through the Naija Super 8 website, the mobile site, or via the MyDStv and MyGOtv apps. MyDStv and MyGOtv App voting are open to active DStv and GOtv subscribers with eligible packages in selected countries.

“Like we have previously reiterated, this tournament intends to reignite fan interest in the Nigerian local football league. As such, we believe that it is imperative that the fans be enabled to participate in the team selection process of the tournament because football without the fans is nothing.”

“We can assure all stakeholders of the highest standard of transparency devoid of any form of malpractice as the voting process will be managed and audited by Deloitte, the same company which handles the voting process for Big Brother Naija”, he said.
