A Nigeria woman has bought an European club

It has being revealed that a woman who hails from the Eastern part of Nigeria, Nneka Ede, has bought a Portuguese Club.

Nneka has become the first African woman to own a European club she achieved this feat after she bought a Portuguese Club.

According to media outlet she secured the full ownership of the over 100 years old club after months of negotiations.

They described her as enthusiastic and very passionate towards the sports.

The club named Lusitano Ginásio. Clube, Futebol, SAD competes in the Campeonato de Portugal, the third division of Portugal’s football pyramid.

Lusitano entered the 1952–53 Primeira Divisão, finishing up 7th in their first season ever

The club competed for 14 consecutive seasons in the Primeira Divisão, its major period of success in the 1950s and 1960s, earning an honorable 5th place in 1956/57, and reaching the semi-finals of the Taça de Portugal twice.

After relegation in 1966 the club went through a period of decline, never regaining access to the Portuguese top flight ever again and even descending to regional championships.

The club is still today in the top 30 of teams with the most presences in the Portuguese League.

We hope Nneka helps Portuguese club achieve its full potentials
