City Sports Group and LaLiga club, Real Betis have agreed to a partnership deal to collaborate on areas such as brand exposure, talent development, exploring commercial opportunities and creating pathways for young Nigerian talents to visit Spain for further training and assessment. The collaboration was facilitated by the LaLiga office in Nigeria as part of its efforts to build bridges between the Nigerian football ecosystem and Spanish clubs.

Speaking on the partnership, Shola Opaleye, CEO of the City Sports Group said he is excited with the partnership because of the many areas of collaboration and the opportunities it opens up for the City Sports Group, its development programs as well as exciting Nigerian talent. “We have been in talks with a few clubs but this is the perfect deal for us. I have been to Spain twice in the past few months with my team and I have to say we felt right at home in Betis and we are delighted we share the same views about what can be achieved with partnerships such as this. Their facilities are excellent and their coaching philosophy is outstanding. We are excited to work with Betis and to open this opportunity for young Nigerian talents. We shall be holding periodic camps facilitated by their coaches, develop a training program and every year, we will send our teams for further training in Betis thereby exposing them to what life behind the scenes at the top-level looks and feels like for a week, an immersion program where they will see how football clubs and teams operate, prepare for games.”
