Friesland Campina Wins 2018 Remita Corporate Champions Cup

Friesland Campina, makers of Peak milk, have won the fourth edition of the Remita Corporate Champions Cup (RC3).

Remita, a payment platform launched in 2005, started the annual corporate football tournament in 2014 for core employees in the banking, Insurance, Telecoms, and fast-moving consumers goods sectors. Previous winners of the competition include Skye Bank (2014), Nestle (2015), and IHS Nigeria (2016).

In total, eight teams participated in this year’s tournament. They include Friesland Campina, Unilever, FCMB, 9Mobile, First Bank, Leadway Assurance, last year’s winner HIS, and wildcard Credit Direct. These companies are previous winners and runners-up from various industry games including Banking, FMCG, Insurance and Telecommunications Games.

Friesland Campina beat FCMB one nil to clinch this year’s trophy at the Yaba Tech Pavilion in Lagos.

But it wasn’t all football–from inception, Remita shared that a key reason for the tourney is to help corporate workers maintain a healthy work-life balance.

“With RC3, Nigerian corporates are mixing business with leisure. It is that one time when professionals, their friends, and family take work matters off their minds,” says John Obaro, Managing Director of SystemSpecs.

We hope to engender greater collaborations across Corporate Nigeria and by that very token achieve more successes that would engender greater innovations for the overall advancement of our beloved country.

And the final event was true to these statements. The event packed a wide array of fun attractions and a musical performance by one of Nigeria’s leading artist, Mayorkun.
