The Abuja FIFA Tournament was a huge success. It took place on Friday and Saturday, 9th and 10th of October in The Capital Hub Abuja. Many advocates for youth empowerment and prominent youth attended the tournament. We also had some young upcoming entrepreneurs in the building.

75 people in total registered for the tournament online, and 68 turned up on the day of the tournament. We came up with some fantastic players. These players were able to bully some users by trashing them with a huge score-line. We had 8 players who qualified to the finals which took place on Saturday 10th of October.
The last two who qualified to the finals were Ahman Oginiji and Amir Kusherki. The highest score line of the tournament was 6-0 Scored by the winner of the Tournament, Ahman Oginiji during the last game .
The winner went home with a Spectranet , BZ Kaftan and a Velcroz Designs Cap. While the second runner up went home with an original Arsenal Jersey.
The main aim of organizing the tournament was to bring Abuja Youth together and getting the chance to know each other to be able to promote each other’s businesses in one way or the other. The next FIFA Tournament will be in December, it’s going to be a National Tournament next time.
