GTBank Football Tournaments

For Guaranty Trust Bank, the value of sports as an aid to personal development cannot be over emphasized, hence the sponsorship of the grassroots football tournamants, which started in 2009.

The tournaments, ‘The Principals Cup’, and ‘The Masters Cup’ are football competition amongst secondary schools, which fosters team work and identifies local football talent at the grassroots level.

In line with the vision of raising role models for the society as well as using sports as a tool to provoke academic excellence in secondary schools, the football tournaments have thus provided the platform to create football stars who will become Nigeria’s ambassadors to the international community and participate in the discovery, career development and economic empowerment of local football talents.

The phenomenon known as football has proven to be a tool used to foster camaraderie amongst youth, the Principals Cup no doubt has continued to identify local football talent at grass-root levels as well as promote healthy rivalry.
