Turf Season Hosts 1st Agric Football Competition

2018 Agric Football Competition

Africa’s First Agric Football Competition is set to be hosted by Turf Season Football Academy on the 9th of December, 2018 at the University of Lagos.

The Agric Football Competition is a partnership between Corporate Farmers International and Turf Season with the major objective to promote and encourage agriculture among youths using the power of football.

The role of agriculture in football is very significant. Akin Alabi (MBA), Managing Partner of Corporate Farmers International, shared some insight during the signing of the competition’s MoU with Turf Season that “the grass pitch on which football is played is a direct indicator of this relationship. The soccer boots and uniforms are products of agriculture such as cotton, leather and rubber, etc.”

“With footballers understanding this Agric Football  relationship and how it supports the organization and development of football, it can definitely help them take agriculture seriously as a means of empowerment, hereby creating employment, livelihood and income for themselves and many others as well. The Agric Football Competition is a welcomed development and we are proud to partner with Corporate Farmers International to make it a reality.” Paschal Agonsi, Director and Interim Manager of Turf Season comments.
