TEAM NIGERIA GETS ALGIERS 2007 BROADCAST RIGHTS
The Supreme Council for Sports in Africa, (SCSA), owners of the All Africa Games, has ceded the broadcast rights for the 9th edition of the Games taking place in Algiers later this year, to Team Nigeria Trust Fund, the SCSA announced over the weekend.
Following enquiries by prospective broadcast outfits to SCSA to acquire the broadcast rights for the Games, the Secretary-General of the Supreme Council for Sports in Africa, Sonstone Kashiba, directed them to liaise with the Managing Director of Team Nigeria, Suleiman Baba Ali, who has been saddled with the responsibility of dealing with the issue. Ali is the Chairman of the Marketing and Communications Commission of the SCSA.
The Nigerian Government had late last year wrote to SCSA to award the broadcast rights for the Games to Team Nigeria in view of its mandate to generate funds that will compliment Government's subvention to the sports sector.
