Nigeria’s national football team, the Super Eagles, went neck to neck with Liberia’s Lone Stars in a match many will describe as a commanding victory for Nigeria. To ensure that the players were match-ready, the official hygiene partner of the Super Eagles, Dettol, ensured the locker rooms and all surrounding areas in the stadium were sanitised and germ-free.
The brand worked with the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) and the management of the Teslim Balogun Stadium to sanitise the surfaces, and provide cool branded hygiene kits for the football players and officials to ensure that a high hygiene regimen was maintained on and off the pitch.
As the Super Eagles secured a comfortable first-leg 2-0 win at home against the Lone Stars, excited fans were reminded about health and hygiene by the amiable safety ambassadors across the stadium.
Dettol is leveraging Nigerians’ love for football to improve their health and hygiene consciousness.
To ensure that the Super Eagles stay germ-free Dettol has partnered with the NFF. Following the announcement of the partnership between the NFF and Dettol on June 17, 2021, Akbar Ali Shah, the General Manager of Reckitt, Sub-Saharan Africa, stated at the ceremony, “Dettol will provide hygienic protection for the Super Eagles during their pre and post-match activities as it already does in several Nigerian homes. We hope the partnership empowers them on their quest to entertain Nigerians and bring home the Cups. Dettol will also work hand in hand with NFF to provide hygiene support for the football fans of Nigeria.”
The win move Super Eagles to the top of Group C of the African campaign, with Central African Republic and Cape Verde having battled to a 1-1 draw in Douala on Wednesday.
The Super Eagles will continue their 2022 World Cup campaign with a face-off against Cape Verde on Tuesday, September 7, 2021.
