Bauchi State Football Association is to collaborate with the State Police Command to ensure security of football activities in the state.
The chairman of the association, Patrick Pascal, during a courtesy visit to the State Commissioner of Police, Sylvester Abiodun Alabi recently, said the collaboration was necessary towards ensuring the safety of the players, officials and other stakeholders ahead of the start of 2021/22 football season.
Pascal, who is also the Super Eagles coordinator, added that the partnership would strengthen the development of football at the grassroots.
“If people know that their lives and properties are secured at match venues without any form of violence, it would further encourage more people and investors to come.
The Bauchi State Commissioner of Police, Sylvester Abiodun Alabi, reaffirmed the commitment of the force in safeguarding lives and properties in the state, adding that all necessary support would be given to the state FA to carry out her activities successfully.
