The clean-up morning attracted celebrities and sporting legends including Peter Rufai (Former Super Eagles Goalkeeper), OC Ukeje, Kemi Adetiba, Bez, Temi Dollface, Osas Ighodaro, Bolanle Olakanni, Ono Bello amongst others.
Officials of lead sponsor 1960BET and long-standing sponsors First City Monument Bank (FCMB), Pepsi, Cool FM, Eko Atlantic and venue sponsors Eko Energy Estate under Orlean Invest joined other beach soccer enthusiasts and members of LAWMA (Lagos State Waste Management Authority) in gathering waterfront garbage and waste material from the Eko Atlantic City waterfront.
Clean The Beach is a prelude to Copa Lagos, Nigeria’s highly entertaining international beach soccer festival, holding this year at the Eko Atlantic City, Victoria Island, from 12th to 14th December 2014.
Copa Lagos 2014 will feature FC Barcelona Beach Soccer Team, with three of the biggest Nigerian clubs, including Enyimba FC, scheduled to play in The FC Barcelona Challenge.
