“COPA Coca-Cola Coaching Clinic is my Contribution to the Development of Nigerian Teens” – Victor Ikpeba


Nigeria teens are blessed with a lot of talent, particularly in football. Ex-International footballer, Victor Ikpeba, expressed this opinion during the 2016 COPA Coca-Cola North Western Coaching clinics held in Abuja recently.

According to the Prince of Monaco, ““From coaching clinics and initiatives such as Copa Coca-Cola, rising football stars are identified. Nigeria teens are blessed with a lot of talent, particularly in football. Football made me who I am today so I take these coaching clinics as my contribution to the development of these teens.”



With the love of football in their hearts, the mantra, “Everything for Football” on their lips and an ice cold bottle of Coke in every hand, the Coaching Clinic comprised Government Secondary School, Chindit, Kaduna; Nagari College, Kebbi; Government Model School, Suleja, Niger; and Government Secondary School, Dange, Sokoto.


“At Coca-Cola, we have come to realize that, the best way to build the Nigerian teen is to Encourage and support them develop their skills and reach their aspirations. For us, Copa Coca-Cola is a great platform for this, as it gives hope to these teens, builds their confidence in themselves and their abilities, while fanning the flames of their desire to succeed,” Marketing Director, Coca-Cola Nigeria, Patricia Jemibewon said while speaking on behalf of the brand.


Government Model School, Suleja, Niger emerge as winners of the North-western region grabbing the golden ticket to Lagos for the National finals. The Victory was indeed hard-fought given that the  Niger boys lost their first match to Sokoto boys 0-1, scaled through their second match by beating Kaduna boys 1-0, and trumped the score board by defeating Kebbi boys 7-0.
