The new slate of original programming will focus on Northern Nigerian teams, athletes and coaches and will bring our viewers behind the scenes with their favourite teams and athletes. While football and basketball will lead the way, A24 Sports will cover other popular sports and their star athletes as well as topics including athletic lifestyle, training and fitness, nutrition and building character in our youth – boys and girls – through participation in sports.”
