Nigerian firm bids for Benin, Malawi FIFA Goal projects

| February 18, 2013 | 0 Comments

MONIMICHELE Sports Facility, owned by FIFA-licensed agent, Ebi Egbe, is among the firms bidding for contracts to build five football pitches of the FIFA Goal projects in Republic of Benin and Malawi.

The company is quoted in the FIFA website as being one of the earlier bidders for the projects alongside companies from South Africa, Europe and the United States.

Speaking on the FIFA projects, Egbe said over the weekend in Port Harcourt that his company has been in the business of sports management, consultancy and infrastructure development for 20 years, adding that it has the capacity to build the best pitch available in the world today.

Egbe, whose company is in partnership with Italian manufacturers, LIMONTA, a firm known as the Ferrari of pitches, claimed the surface of the turfs it produces helps to reduce injuries to athletes because it is made of organic coconut fibres and cork instead of the conventional rubber granule that have been banned in some countries in Europe because of its toxic element.

He revealed the company has already built a modest reputation for itself in the country as players of visiting teams and other users of the Samson Siasia Stadium, Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, have consistently attested to the natural’ feel’ of the playing surface.

Egbe disclosed that the company is currently handling the installation of FIFA two-star pitch with the shock drain system that absorbs pressure and reduces injuries at the Aper Aku Stadium in Makurdi, adding that the project is about 90 per cent completed.

If it wins the bids in the Republic of Benin and Malawi, Egbe said the company would be the first indigenous company to successfully win bids outside the country in the sports facilities construction sector.
