President and founder of Nigeria National League side, Go Round FC, Felix Obuah has promised to splash the cash once again if his side qualifies to play in the top tier of the Nigerian league.
Go Round FC currently stand in 3rd place on the Nigeria National League, NNL log and Obuah has made a subtle reminder that the lives of the players and officials of the club could change for good if they grab one of the qualifying tickets.
“My players know how committed I am to their welfare and also what I can do when they deliver on expectations.
“I have told them that their lives will change if they deliver the promotion ticket to the people of Omoku and Rivers State and this includes the players, coaches and management of the team,” Obuah said.
“The welfare is good here. At least I know we are the only club in Nigeria that is not owing salaries or match bonuses and this is because I want them to always be in the right frame of mind all season long.”
The team will play in Umuahia on Saturday against Abia Comets and are hoping to get the three points to stake a stronger claim for one of the promotion slots.
Meanwhile, Felix Obuah describes his love for the club as a passion that will not go away.
“My passion for this club is one that will not go away because I believe in grass roots football development.
“It is this passion that has seen the team own its own stadium, camp and club house, something only FC Ifeanyi Ubah in the Nigerian top flight league can boast of.
“It is this same passion that sees me accompany the team for most of the away games we have played this season.
“The reward for all of this will surely be a place in the top flight and we are working together to see that we achieve this by the end of the season,” Obuah said.
A few years ago when the team returned from the amateur ranks to the professional League, the players got two hundred thousand naira each for the efforts while in 2016 after winning the Rivers State FA Cup, Obuah rewarded the players with five hundred thousand naira each.
Ever since their return to the professional ranks, this season has so far been the closest the club has been to qualifying for the NPFL.
