“Now, we shall be playing friendly matches with other clubs within Kaduna so that the team will be stronger before the league commences in 2016,’’ Bodunde said.

He also said the club had secured sponsorship kits deal with a reputable sports wear.

The media officer said this would also help in ensuring that the club’s replica jersey would be available in stores at an affordable price across the nation.
