Authentic Nigeria Football Supporters Club Not Competing With Anyone
There comes a time in life when change is necessary, when the old-order needs to be left behind and a progressive future embraced. This is the story of Authentic Nigeria Football Supporters Club, a club that was formed out of necessity in order to meet the world best practice as obtainable in other parts of the world.
The founder of Authentic Nigeria Football Supporters Club, Abayomi Ogunjimi having gone through the rank and files of the first existed Supporters Club in Nigeria, having served as Youth Chairman, Social Secretary and First vice Chairman saw the need to set up a progressive brand that truly represents what supporters club stands for.
The Wrongs Of The Old
It will interest you to know that the founder of the first supporters club that was hijacked and personalised were foreigners. They founded and funded the club, gave room to changes, it was smooth run not until our people out of selfishness and greediness colonized the group and made it a personal business.
It became military, young ones with big ideas were not allowed to go far, ideas keep dying. It was no longer fun. A drift from supporting into politics and personal gains became the order of the day.
The Supporters club became toxic to the mindful youths, who saw no future with the old order and decided to form their own Supporters Club with unique visions.
The old supporters club was remodeled by the greedy ones to have just one leader all through its useful life. The need for Paradigm shift emanated and we had to shift. The old supporters club were satisfied with the status quo of backwardness having been left behind by modernization.
The Many Supporters Club
A simple research will show you that there are different sections of fans within clubs and national teams, their converging goal is to give support and cheer their teams to victory. A look at Ghana, there are 7 different factions of supporters club and they operate mutually exclusive.
