Eight Secondary Schools are set to compete for glory at the highly anticipated Maiden Monday Gift Girls Cup 2023 on November 15 at the Obele Community High School Ground in Surulere, Lagos.
Sponsored by the remarkable Gift Monday, this tournament is not just about football; it’s a celebration of empowerment and talent.
The substantial N150,000 prize pool recognizes the champions, runners-up, and third-place winner, amplifying the competitive spirit.
Excitement peaks with cash prizes for the best player and highest goal scorer, enhancing the stakes of the competition.
Gift Nyakno Monday, a standout both on and off the field, goes beyond football prowess as a passionate advocate for empowering young girls in her community.
Beyond her stellar performances with UDG Tenerife and the Nigeria women’s national team, Gift has initiated the Monday Gift Girls (MGG) Championship.
This transformative program, spearheaded by Olasunkanmi A. Gbeleyi, PhD, targets girls aged 8 to 16, providing not just football training but also essential life skills.
The MGG Championship is not just a tournament; it’s a pathway to empowerment and success as Gift Nyakno Monday articulates, “I strive to give back to the girl child in my community, and this initiative will provide opportunities for more girls to excel through the combination of sport and education.”
The MGG Championship stands as a testament to the power of sports and education in shaping lives, with the ultimate goal of inspiring excellence across diverse fields.
