Save Our Sports Nigeria (SOS.ng) is a Non Govermantal Organisation whose target is improving the lives of home-based athletes in Nigeria, for better performances at international competitions.
The objective of the initiative is to give support and majorly financial incentives to these athletes at the Golden League meets, especially those who have not made the national team at any age level in the past two years.
While Athletics will be the pioneering sport, it is expected to branch into other sports as more sponsors and partners become part of the project.
The sponsors presently are nine ex-internationals who share the same dream and believe in the project, and kits sponsor (DAG Apparel) who select a number of Nigerian athletes as their Ambassadors each season, to provide them with training gears for that year.
The NGO’s website, www.saveoursports.ng is designed to give important Nigerian sports news, top list of Nigerian athletes for the season, profile home based athletes so as to increase their publicity to the international media and chances of being scouted by European managers/coaches for International meets and US Colleges.
Meanwhile, the website also gives first hand information on what’s going on with the NGO, when there are added sponsors or partners to the team, and the latest news on the DAG Apparel ambassadors.
Finally, the site has an app which can be downloaded on GooglePlay with the search word (saveoursports), and can be followed on all social media platforms – @SOSNGR (Facebook & Twitter) and @sos_ngr (Instagram).
