At a press briefing that was held on Tuesday in Lagos, the General Manager International Development of LaLiga, Mr Vicente Casado said this was done as part of its plan to support football development in Nigeria and also bring the LaLiga closer to its fans in the Country.
"LaLiga is happy to be here in Nigeria, this is one of the best football countries in the world and the passion is here. This is another step in our relationship with Nigeria football since we entered into partnership with the Nigeria Professional Football League last year"
Also Speaking at the event, the CEO of Legacy Sports, Mr Philip Diwan said the partnership will be of immense benefit to Nigeria football.
"LaLiga has granted us exclusive rights to market them in Nigeria, both in the digital and offline space, we are also going to set up a world class academy to develop young talented players who will be trained by Spanish coaches who will reside here in Nigeria, players in this academy will also be granted a scholarship to cover their education and the cost will be bone by Legacy Sports'.
"We will also have coaching instructors from Spain to train our grassroots coaches, and we will also organise events for the fans because without them, there will be no clubs and no league"
