Nigeria’s No.1 online news portal Legit.ng has agreed a partnership deal with the French Professional League to present fans with amazing gifts in a bid to add the Ligue 1 experience to their lifestyles.
The football body which acknowledges the imporant role of Nigerian players in France’ elite league will occasionally present exciting prizes to football fans – including various Ligue 1 souvenirs and club kits.
Kick-starting the partnership, Ligue 1 will give a lucky fan a Wissam Ben Yedder AS Monaco jersey in partnership with Legit.ng. He wears no.9 shirt at the club.
To participate, all you have to do is, on Twiiter, follow @Ligue1_ENG and @legitngnews, retweet the respective Tweet - and that’s all.
Ben Yedder certainly lit up Ligue 1 season with 18 league goals and seven assists in 26 games. He has been so clinical and so precise in front of goal that not even Mbappe could outscore him in 2019-20.
“It’s contest time! We're giving away a Wiss Ben Yedder’ AS Monaco jersey in partnership with @legitngnews. Retweet this tweet!" Ligue 1 wrote.
Winner will be announced on both handles latest Tuesday, August 18. Good luck!
Meanwhile, the 2020-2021 Ligue 1 season, also known as Ligue 1 Uber Eats for sponsorship reasons, will start on August 21, 2020 and is scheduled to end on May 23, 2021.
Several Nigerians play in the competition including Super Eagles stars Moses Simon and Samuel Kalu and their jerseys will be up for grabs in subsequent contests.
Simon was named Nantes' best player for the 2019-20 league season following his impressive performance for the Canaries after joining them on a season-long loan deal from La Liga side Levante last summer.
The 25-year-old scored eight goals and made nine assists in 30 appearances in the process and polled a total of 40 percent votes to emerge as the team's best player for the campaign.
Nigeria's Samuel Kalu joined Bordeaux on a five year deal from Belgian side Gent in 2018 and has featured in 35 Ligue 1 matches so far.
Recall that Legit.ng recently entered into partnership with Premier League club Manchester City.
The deal allows Legit.ng receive exclusive contents from the club including match-reports, exlusive footages from Etihad stadium, interviews with the players and staff as well as giveaways to the fan base.
