With only 3 days before the commencement of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, Nigeria’s foremost sports management and media firm — Making of Champions Limited (MoC) — has announced leading payments & mobile money company Paga, as the official sponsor of MoC’s live coverage of the Tokyo Olympic Games scheduled to hold from 23rd July — 8th August 2021 at Tokyo, Japan.
MoC has built a reputation in Africa and across the globe, providing world-class media coverage at over 10 major competitions since 2014, including Rio Olympics, 3 World Championships (Beijing 2015, London 2017, Doha 2019), 3 African Championships (Marrakech 2014, Durban 2016, Asaba 2018), 2 World Relays (Bahamas 2014 & 2015), 2 African Games (Brazzaville 2015, Rabat 2019) & 1 World Junior Championships (Bydgoszcz 2016).
Today, MoC is a leading source of live Team Nigeria coverage and will capture every moment of Team Nigeria’s performances at the Tokyo Olympics Games courtesy of Paga, across all the sports that the nation will be competing in — Athletics, Badminton, Basketball, Canoe sprint, Gymnastic, Rowing, Taekwondo, Table Tennis and Wrestling.
This new partnership comes in the wake of a successful Paga/MoC Relay competition hosted in Lagos, where both establishments partnered to enable Relay & Individual Athletes from across Nigeria and Africa to qualify for the Olympics. Nigeria’s mixed 4x400m broke the African Record (AR) and National Record (NR), qualifying with a time of 3:14.09s.
Speaking on the partnership, MoC Founder & CEO Bambo Akani said: “We are elated to welcome Paga as sponsors of our live coverage of the Tokyo Olympics Games. Paga has again reinforced its commitment to making life possible for everyone by ensuring millions of Nigerians home and abroad are afforded the opportunity of following Team Nigeria’s performance at the Olympics Games via our website & social media channels”.
Also commenting on the partnership, Paga’s Founder & CEO, Tayo Oviosu said, “At Paga, we recognize and celebrate excellence, and the Olympics is a culmination of sporting excellence. This continued partnership with MoC is a valuable reminder of how we “make life possible”, by making it easier for people to enjoy such a monumental event. We at Paga are fully committed in whichever way possible to move the sporting industry forward and are rooting for the athletes. May they come back home with medals!”
MoC & Paga will also organize exciting campaigns for viewers across our digital channels such as the #PagaChamps, which will encourage users to showcase their exceptional abilities across any sport or other endeavour during our coverage.
