The club which plays in the Nigeria National League, the country’s second-tier football was formed just over a year ago (September 11, 2019) has become the first football club in Nigeria to own a mobile app.

Speaking exclusively to The Athletic NG, Media Director of the club, and veteran sports broadcaster, George Essien said the mobile app is only available for Android users and that the club will soon launch the version for iOS.

“After yesterday’s celebration, we are back to work,” Essien said. “As you can see, the launch of the mobile app which is right now on Android and is available on Google Play Store. We are working on that of iOS which is to be launch separately in the nearest future, not so far from now just as the same way you woke up to see the mobile app is the same way you will see the iOS as well.
