“As the firm continues to grow, every step of the way, it is important that we uplift our society by giving back to our local communities, which also helps strengthen our nation’s stance economically and which is why this year, to celebrate International Men’s Day, Duale, Ovia & Alex-Adedipe is sponsoring and supporting grassroots football club, Team360,” the firm said in a short documentary released in commemoration of International Men’s Day.
The documentary video highlights Team360’s activities, from going about their day to getting fitted up, pre-game ritual (e.g., pep talk or team bonding session), and so on. It also features the team during training at their National Stadium match ground, the empty pitch, and the boys during a match.
Furthermore, the documentary video shows three teenage team players talking about their passion for football, what it means to be a member of the team, how it impacts their lives, how it helps them to be better people in the society, and how the team is taking them one step closer to their dream.
Lastly, it shows the coach speaking about Team360’s weekly schedule, how coaching the boys helps them attain their dream, keep them busy, disciplined, etc, and how donations/support they receive help the team.
Meanwhile, Team369 Football Club has expressed its “utmost gratitude” to the law firm of Duale, Ovia & Alex-Adedipe for the donation of N500,000 made into the club’s account.
“We thank your management and organisation for this donation as this will help in getting some training equipment and other logistics needed to foster the team to the next level as we prepare for our upcoming Fusion Football Championship league starting in December 2022,” the club said in a letter of appreciation signed by Hamza Akeem Oladimeji, its president/founder.
International Men’s Day is marked on November 19 every year to recognise and celebrate the positive value men bring to the world, their families and communities. This year’s event will highlight positive role models and raise awareness of men’s well-being.
