Flutterwave seems to be going from heights to new highs these days, and we love to see it. Their latest moves now see them supporting the Nigerian basketball team as the official payments partner as the team heads to Tokyo to compete in the Olympics games.
It is worthy of note that the Nigerian Team, named D’Tigers, is the only African basketball team that made it to the competition.
The task before them is also a tall one, seeing as they have to compete against basket balling giants like the US, Australia, France, Germany, Italy and Iran, among others. The silver lining there is that we have the services of Coach Mike Brown, the assistant head coach of the Golden State Warriors, to lead the team.
This Flutterwave partnership makes it easier for fans to donate to the players and help them reach their full potential. It is also a move to make sure fans from all over the world can get the merchandise and other products that the official sports body in the country will be selling. The proceeds will also go to the bettering of the sport, so fans are supporting in another way too.
The Nigerian team has already secured a friendly win over the US team on July 10 and if they continue in that way, we have hopes of clinching a worthy medal at the Tokyo games.
