According to him, little has been done in the way of promoting, marketing or exploiting one of the most exciting aspects of the game flair which is freestyle.“Feet ‘n’ Tricks is set to develop and nurture an art, a lifestyle, a passion for many, and also a means to a lucrative career,” Ozigbo said.
“We have so many people out there who are talented in freestyle football and have been doing it on the street for fun, but now they have the opportunity to participate in a competition where they will be rewarded financially.

“The target is to organise a world class event full of credibility and sustainable future. This year’s edition is to test run and then move to the grassroots next year before extending it to other part of West Africa.”
A board member of the organisation, Olisa Adibua, revealed that the winner of the first edition will represent the country at the Super Ball in August in Prague.

Ex-international, Kanu Nwankwo, said: “Football starts from the street and if you cannot make it into real football, the trick is another opportunity to make it through football.”
