SUCCESS STORY

Lagos City Marathon

In a move to grow and build the future of football in Nigeria, we created an academy to nurture the best budding young football stars in Nigeria by providing them with the perfect platform for Stardom. Our core strategic intent is to be at the heart of football development and growth in Nigeria.

It was originally established in November 1992 by Kashimawo Laloko as a football school, based at the Agege Stadium, courtesy of the Lagos State Sports Council. In 1994, Pepsi came onboard, since then, it’s been titled the Pepsi Football Academy.

The Pepsi Football Academy, over the years, has developed and grown into one of the most prestigious football academies in Nigeria. It currently boasts of over 3,000 registered students aged between 6-18 years and operates throughout the year from 14 different training centers and 54 coaches across Nigeria.
