He noted that within that time, the group has contributed significantly to the nation's economy while its portfolio of widely recognised brands, continue to dominate industries in which they operate.

The Business Head of Simba said the company has supported national football at many levels but officially became sponsors of the Super Eagles through their TVS brand of motorcycles and tricycles early 2018.

This recent ceremonial visit followed an event held in November, where Simba thanked the Super Eagles Head Coach, Gernot Rohr, for his team's efforts at the FIFA World Cup in Russia last summer.

Speaking at the event, Managing Director of Simba Group, Chief Vinay Grover, said: “We celebrate the success that the Super Eagles have had this year, and are also so proud of all the other national football teams, especially the Super Falcons and the junior teams representing our country. Our association with the NFF is very special, and we are honoured to be contributing to the development of the sport locally.”
