On the 25th of November, 2022, to promote implementation of actions that will contribute towards achieving environmental sustainability in Makurdi and Benue state at Large , ISEA partnered with Angel Support Foundation (ASF), Environment and Climate Change Amelioration Initiative – ECCAI, DevTrain CEDI, and organized the second edition of The Makurdi Green Cup.
The Makurdi Green Cup is a football tournament that encourages environmental initiatives among secondary schools, hence, the precondition for participating in the tournament by any school is that, the school must initiate and implement any environmental initiative. The Makurdi Green Cup is the brain child of ISEA.
This year, The Makurdi Green Cup football tournament was played at the football field of Tes’B Academy Makurdi. The tournament featured male and female football teams of the school.
At the end of the tournament, the Red House of the school defeated the Yellow House of the school by 2 goals to nil and emerged the winner of the female category. In the male category, the Yellow House defeated the Red House by 3 goals to 1 and emerged the winner of the male category.
Prior to the football tournament, students were sensitized on climate change and its impacts and taught ways of contributing to addressing these impacts.
In addition to promoting environmental sustainability, The Makurdi Green Cup aims to instill in the young people the culture of environmental sustainability and develop sporting spirit among youth in secondary schools.
The Makurdi Green Cup is more than a football tournament.
