The 5 A-Side Football Championship was borne out of the desire to support development of talent and growth of grassroots football in Nigeria.

With the ever rising youth population in Nigeria, our objective is to identify football talents and engage them through the 5 A-Side Competition with Olympic Milk supporting as Official Sponsor.
Grassroots football development is the primary goal of Olympic Milk because a healthy body is a healthy mind.

Last year, Olympic Milk as sponsor of the competition was able to engage 2,500 youths across six cities around the country, with De Royal FC of Lagos crowned the champions.

Due to the clamour for increased participation from various parts of the country, the 5 A-Side Football Championship will be holding across eight (8) cities in 2016. The locations are Lagos, Abuja, Ibadan, Benin, Port Harcourt, Enugu, Kano, and Kaduna.
The competition will kick off with registration on Tuesday, September 6, 2016. Purchase of one carton of 400g Olympic Powder Milk is required per team to register. Registration closes on Friday, October 28, 2016.

Tsunami, one of the world’s leading sports kit suppliers, is the official kit supplier of this year’s championship. As part of the mouth-watering package, the MVP will have an all-expense paid trip to Etihad Stadium, the home of Manchester City FC, to have a full match day experience.

The 2016 champions will receive N1million and trophy; the first runner-up will receive N500,000 and second runner-up will receive N250,000 as cash prizes. The MVP will also receive N300,000 cash prize and a trophy.
