Lokosa, the inaugural winner for his impressive 19 goals scored in 2017/2018, was presented with the trophy and a cheque for N3.8 million – N200,000 a goal.

The media hype around Lokosa’s award caught the attention of African Champions, Tunisia’s Esperance Sportive, who recently signed the Kano Pillars star.

Incidentally, Lokosa had previously travelled to China and Norway seeking a club, but walked away without securing a deal.

“It was only after the Eunisell Boot award had been made along with all the publicity, that my career turned a corner,” he told Completesports.com durimg a media chat.

“There can be no doubt that the award will spur young, aspiring players and Nigerian league footballers to perform at a much higher level – the rewards are real.”

Eunisell firmly believes that rewarding the top flight League players will improve the standard of football, increase the fans focus on the league and create sports employment opportunities for future generations.

Several stars are already in the race for The Eunisell Boot 2018/2019 season.

    This is good for the Nigeria football by all means. Nigerian fans should be going to the Stadium in large numbers. Every Edo people should be proud to wear Bendel Insurance Jerseys. Yes !!! why not ?

     
    • @Edoman, yes the more private investors we have in the game the better. HOWEVER!, successfully run football clubs do not even need fans to go en-mass to the stadiums. If we look at stadium crowds across the world, you will see many matches being played in near empty stadia. In South Africa for example, or in Norway, Portugal, and Eastern Europe. They make money from various streams. I’m not saying we do not go to the stadiums to watch football, as in Nigeria we are a football mad country and fans create an atmosphere that can carry the teams.

      Just like with personal finance, one will never get rich (or make a profit) by relying on just one’s salary, so it is with football clubs. Different revenue streams like expanding the broadcasting of matches (starts with investing in cameras and entering contracts with digital companies), selling merchandise (like the jerseys you mentioned), face caps, fashion ware, car stickers, website subscription for uptodate news on the club and the players, hospitality – a hall for hire, a conference center for interviews and announcements, training facilities that can be rented out to the public, hotel rooms and bars. Most foreign football stadiums have several bars (players lounge, director’s or chairman’s bar) where food and drinks are sold, stadium tours including a trophy room, player development and transparent transfer policy. Advertising and sponsorship deals also (like in the article), competition winning cash. In short ticket sales are a small part of the revenue that successful football clubs take in.

      We need our sports administrator to understand that running a football club is not just raising a team and having a stadium, its a diversified business
