The official jersey sponsors of the Sharks FC, Eunisell Limited has declared that despite the demotion of the sponsored Port Harcourt based side to the Nigerian National League, it won’t stop helping the league from achieving its full potential.
The petro-chemical products company penned a deal with the league side in July - a move which heralded a new era in the franchise of the Port Harcourt based team.
In a statement by the Group Managing Director of Eunisell, Mr. Chika Ikenga, the company won’t call off the contracts with the Blue Sharks despite being relegated from the Nigeria topflight.
“We will not abandon the league; neither will we abandon Sharks FC because of the relegation. Though they will be playing in the second tire league, we won’t terminate our contract with them. We will rather encourage them to improve on their game and hopefully come back to play in the NPFL," Ikenga said.
“We know our league can create jobs and reach its highest potential if well supported. That is why we got involved in the first place and we won’t withdraw our support in a bid to help the county achieve its full potential in this regard.” he concluded.
He also assured that the company remains optimistic about the opportunities the domestic league offers in reducing economical challenges faced in the country.
Sharks finished in 17th position with a total of 45 points after an away loss to Abia Warriors on the final day.
