In an interview, Mr. Emmanuel Ola Williams, CEO of Dreamland Sports Plus, said the main idea is to encourage and inspire budding talented stars as well as current national sports men and women to strive hard for the nation.

“All over the world sports men and women are honoured for their achievements in diverse fields as well as stake holders.

According to Mr. Williams, the idea of acknowledging sponsors, corporate bodies and media houses serves as a way of thanking them for their various roles played in helping to be the platform for grass root sports to thrive.

“Competitions serve to unearth talents as well as sharpen, polish and develop those already discovered.

“These competitions require funding, products, prizes and publicity, thus the awards.

“This will encourage more companies and philanthropist to come on board to provide the much needed sponsorships and support to sporting events in the country” he said.

The maiden national grass root sports awards has been arranged into categories according to the organizers, which will include: flagship awards, stakeholders awards, media personnel awards, media houses awards, sponsors awards, special awards, physical education awards, coaches awards and philanthropic awards.
